Coffee Cozie...

Wow I can't believe it has been since the middle of Feb since I last posted. I have been super busy with kids, schools, hubby and being sick... I'm finally getting caught up with things and am back to my regular scheduled program so to speak. lol

Here is a simple but fun project I recently made and you can find the step by step instructions etc on the Clear Scraps Blog...

I love making coffee cozies out of any materials like fabric, felt chipboard etc. This week I made one using Clear Scraps 12x12 acrylic sheets. What an easy project this was and it would be great for any kind of gift... I used my Purple Cows Freestyle Mouse with a #2803 designer click blade to cut the acrylic with a scalloped effect.

I ran this through my Big Shot with a Sizzix embossing folder that had flowers all over it. I just love it.

I used the rose stem stamp from Inkadinkado and stamped the image with black staz-on and used water color pencils to get my desired colors and effects that I wanted.

Since this is a gift I decided to take my left over acrylic and make a simple card to go with it.

The thinking of you is on front of the acrylic and the rose stem is done the same way as the one on the coffee cozie but it is placed on the inside of the card.

Thanks for looking and I will be back soon.. I promise.. hehe

Pin It!
