Valentine Cup Holder
This is a fun project that we made at our last Team Meeting. (Thanks Cindy for the great idea!) These can hold two cups that you fill with hot chocolate packets and marshmallows, candy, Starbucks gift cards, etc. The insulated cups we used were found at Winco, but you can use any types of cups.
The tag was made using the cute Tag the Occasion stamp set.
The “You Warm my Heart” sentiment is from A Sip and the border is from Party Pennants. The flower was made by punching a piece of Sweetheart B&T with a scallop circle punch. It was crumpled up and inked with Cotton Candy ink, glued to the box, and then a large Sparkle was added in the middle.
These were the measurements and directions that were given at the meeting, just in case you'd like to make one for yourself.
Cut two 9.5" x 9.5" pieces of White Daisy cardstock. Score at 3" on all sides of each piece. Fold. Then cut on the folds, up to the first score line, on one side then the opposite side of the paper. (See photo below.)
Then fold into a perfectly square box! You'll have two boxes. Glue each box together with tacky tape or Bonding Memories Glue. Then glue the two boxes together on one side.
Cute two 3.5" x 8" pieces of white cardstock. Round the two top corners with corner rounder. Punch a whole at the top of each piece with a 2" punch. Glue together at the top with tacky tape, then place these two pieces inside one edge of each of the two boxes...this is the handle and will hold the boxes together.
Cut two pieces of Black CS: 6.5" x 2.5". Then cut two more pieces of Black CS: 2.5" x 2.75".
Cut two pieces of Sweetheart B&T paper: 6.25" x 2.25" and then cut two more pieces of B&T paper 2.25" x 2.5".
Adhere the B&T pieces onto to the Black CS pieces...decorate...then adhere these whole pieces onto each side of the boxes (that are now glued together.)
