Warming Things Up for New Years- Handmade Coffee Sleeve

I love my Starbucks coffees. Whether it is a Pumpkin Spice Latte, Caramel Macchiatto or White Chocolate Mocha, I'm in heaven! So when I got a warming cupful, I thought why not make the perfect coffee sleeve to go with the perfect cup o' java?

Hey there everyone, I'm here today to share with you a project I created using the wonderfrul Color Corrugated papers from Paper Temptress. For the sleeve, I used Chocolate and Light Blue Corrugated papers as well as some red burlap that came in my Dixie Pieces January Kit. I traced the shape using the original Starbucks sleeve and adhered everything with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. I used red rhinestone embellishments from the Vintage Jewels and Gradient Gems packs from Creative Charms.

Here are the photos for ya. Aren't those colors together GORGEOUS!!!!


And a close up for you to see the Corrugated papers close up. These are so great to work with, so if you haven't purchased them from Paper Temptress before, go grab a few of them today.


Well, I'm off to have a great cup of coffee decked out in my new cup sleeve. I hope you all have a fantastic day. Until next time...

(PS- get ready for my blogiversary coming up in a few short days. It's gonna be a big one and if you leave comments now, I may just give some surprises away before the big day)

  6. The colours are fabulous! Will you keep this in the car between Starbucks visits? And then, once it deteriorates, I guess you just make a new one, right? Love that corrugated blue paper!

  17. The sleeve is almost too pretty to use. What a shame it would be to spill something on it! But then again, you would probably spin that into a positive! Happy New Year to you! Can't wait to see what you bring us in 2012!
