Coffee Mug Treat

Seriously?  Is it really almost the middle of November?!  Feel like I slept through October. 
I had my stamp group over in October and November and at this last meet, we made some fun holiday cards and treat holders.  Here's one of them:  
A cute little coffee mug treat using Stampin Up's new Scentsational Season set.    This can hold up to 2 instant coffee packets from Starbucks along with a tag.  

The mug measures 4 x 3 1/2 inches.  I cut whisper white cardstock 4 x 7 inches and folded it in half.  Ran it thru the cuttlebug with the Chevron embossing folder, doing each side separately.   Using an oval shape from my Creative Memory cutters, I trimmed off  a slight oval off the front of the mug.  Then I cut a piece of white cs 2 1/8 x 2 1/8 and with the square punch, punched it in the middle to create a handle.  Laid that piece just inside the mug and ran sticky strip along the bottom and down the right side of the mug and sealed it, securing the handle in the process.
The tag is a 2 x 4 piece of white that was rounded (with a circle punch) with a sentiment from the SU! More Merry Messages stamp set and the steam was stamped on vellum.   The green die cut piece really seems flat to me and so next time, I'll run that through an embossing folder for some pop.  Colors used are whisper white, real red, and gumball green.

Cute little something to give as a treat during this season.  The dimensions on the mug can be easily changed to make it larger so that it can hold more packets.   I found Starbucks Instant Mocha packets the other day at Target and would be cute to make more of these as little teacher gifts.
Hope you have a fabulous week ahead!
