Stampin’ Up! Wrap it Up Coffee Break Cafe

Have a friend that’s a coffee lover?  Looking for a creative way to gift a bag of coffee?  How about this – a unique hand made wrap and tag, all in one!

The Stampin’ Up! 2017-18 Annual Catalog (page 30) has a display featuring the Coffee Break Suite of products with an awesome assortment of cards, tags, bags, coasters and a wrapped coffee bag.  It’s pictured in the center.  I created this tutorial to explain how I recreated this piece.

To start, fussy-cut three different coffee pots as shown from Coffee Pot patterned paper from the Coffee Break stack of Designer Series Paper.  Use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the pots along the 3-1/2″ edge of the 3-1/2″ x 2-7/8″ panel of Early Espresso cardstock.  Love this stack of DSP!

The next steps include inking only selected words from the large sentiment stamp.  The way I chose to do this is to use post-it notes to mask the words I did not want inked.  Then I inked the stamp on the ink pad, removed the post-it notes and stamped the inked word on the selected cardstock.  Ink only the word “coffee” with Early Espresso ink and stamp on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Trim to make a strip 1/2″ wide by 2″ long and trim banner ends with Paper Snips.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the banner centered on an oval shape from the Corrugated Elements embellishment pack.

In the same manner, ink only the word “is” with Garden Green ink and stamp on a scrap of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  Punch out with a 1/2″ circle punch and use glue to adhere to the Corrugated oval above and a little overlapping the banner with the word “coffee”.  Adhere the completed embellishment to the Early Espresso panel centered above the pot in the middle.  Ink the full sentiment with Pear Pizzazz ink and stamp on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut the stamped panel in half before die cutting the top and bottom edges using a die from the Lots of Labels Framelits.  To complete the tag, use glue to adhere the two halves of the label to the back of the Early Espresso panel to reveal “happiness” above and “with a friend” below.  Take care to align the two halves so they appear as one long label.  The completed tag is centered side to side and top to bottom on the Wood Grain patterned paper panel of the Coffee Break stack of DSP and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Measure the width, height and depth of the bag to determine the length and width of the Crumb Cake cardstock strips and scoreline placement.  You may need to adjust your cuts and score lines based on the measurements of the bag you are wrapping.  The bag of coffee used in the sample is 9″ tall, 4″ wide and the bag bottom is 3″ deep.  The cardstock strips are 11″ long and 3-1/2″ wide.  The strip for the front is scored at 1″ and 10″.  The strip for the back is scored at 3″.  Fold the front strip so 1″ wraps under the bag and 1″ folds over the top of the bag.  Adhere the 1″ section under the bag to the 3″ section of the back strip, which then extends up to cover the back of the bag.

Cut a 41″ length of Whisper White 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon. Wrap it around the Crumb Cake cardstock wrap and tie a bow on the front near the top edge.  Make sure the ribbon is centered on the strips.  Adhere the completed tag and DSP panel to the front of the wrap and over the ribbon with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
