Quick Coffee Stick Gift using Stampin’ Up! Cupcakes & Carousels

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Quick Coffee Stick Gift using Cupcakes & Carousels

It’s official, I’m not fully into my self imposed – Use-It-Up challenge. As a demonstrator, once a product has retired, I don’t use it again. I’d hate to show something that had retired and then have to say ‘yes, it’s lovely, but you can’t have it anymore’, so once it’s left our catalogue, I don’t use it anymore.

I tend to donate all my papers, ribbons, embellishments etc to schools and then hang onto the stamps and dies until I can do my big enormous huge Buy One Get One Free event in August, but I do like to get as much use out of paper as I can!

So if you’re like me and you’ve got bits and stuff and scraps around, this is a great use it up project.

I’ve got a nescafe coffee stick and 2 sugar sticks wrapped in a piece of paper just 3 x 6″ (7.5 x 15cm) and a couple of embellishments on top! That’s it!

The paper does all the hard work – it’s so beautiful, and just a tiny bit of stamping with Vertical Greetings and a bow, job done!

Hands up who else is a scrap user upperer (it’s a word….!)

  2. I must be a good learner — ha!ha!ha! . . . I am sending to your mail a picture of what I did as thank you tokens . . . I am always saying “thank you” . . . I did the one you showed today in an XXL size to offer to my students who embroidered for the Caritas kermesse. I placed inside a box of scent sticks. In the one for coffee and sugar; I added a stick to stir . . . we all had coffee together . . . I just took a thermos with hot water. Thanks Sam . . . you help me make others happy!!!
