I created this project for the “something you’ve been wanting to do” CreativeCrew challenge. I have been wanting to create a 3D coffee project for sometime now. This uniquely shaped coffee mug is made with the simply scored (body) the labels framelits die (handle) and the blossom and eyelet border punch (bottom & rim).
This project is perfect for the coffee lover. Without the handle it could also be an interesting container that could be filled with small treats. If you would like to make your own, just follow my tutorial below.
Want to play along with the Creative Crew challenges? Here are the challenge Deets: CCREW0312HF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- Holiday focus: Let's celebrate national crafting month! Pull that idea you've been "wanting to do" out and create it. You can use any theme, maybe you have an Easter project, maybe you have a decor or centerpiece idea, maybe you've been wanting to do something with fabric? Any theme is okay, but show us your artistic, creative, involved crafty side. Use the first attached photo to inspire your creativity.
Scored Coffee Cup Tutorial
1. Start with a piece of 5-½” x 12” designer series paper. Designer paper is easier to work with for the main body of this project. On the long side, score at 2”, 4”, 6” 8” and 10”. Make sure the pattern that you want to face outwards is facing down for this step. Please note: Use the SMALL ball on your stylus to ensure precise scoring for all scoring on this piece. Be careful not to press too hard or the paper will tear.
2. Flip the paper over so that the pattern that you want to have facing outward is up. Make a pencil mark at 5/8”, 1-3/8”, 2-5/8”, 3-3/8”, 4-5/8”, 5-3/8”, 6-5/8”, 7-3/8”, 8-5/8”, 9-3/8”, 10-5/8” and 11-3/8”.
3. Turn the paper 180 degrees so that the other long side is facing up. Still with the outside pattern facing up, mark a pencil mark at 1/8”, 1-7/8”, 2-1/8”, 3-7/8”, 4-1/8”, 5-7/8”, 6-1/8”, 7-7/8”, 8-1/8”, 9-7/8”, 10-1/8” and 11-7/8”.
4. Align the 1/8” mark from the long side to the mark 5/8” in on the opposite side along the 6” score groove. Use your stylus tool to score between the two marks. Note: Darken the 6” groove of your scoring tool with a Sharpie to make alignment easier.
5. Next score from the 1-7/8” mark to the 1-3/8” mark and so on. Please note: The yellow dotted line shows the line that is being scored. The red dotted line shows the score mark from step 4. None of the score lines will cross each other and each pencil mark will only be aligned and scored once.
6. Continue to score all the diagonals along the length of the paper (12 total, including the two from steps 4 & 5). Here is how your scored piece should look when you have finished scoring all the diagonals. The red lines show the diagonal scores. The blue lines show the straight scores.
7. Fold along the score lines making 5 valleys in the pattern that will be on the outside of the cup.
8. Glue each of the five valleys together using tombo mono multi glue. Press down along each seam to make sure the folds are adhered together well.
9. Here is what the piece looks like with all the valleys glued together.
10. Cut a label with the 4th largest label Framelits die. Score this piece in half lengthwise.
11. Fold the label piece in half along the score line. Use a bone folder to flatten the fold. Take the short side of the same labels framelit and run it through on the folded label piece.
12. Glue the halves of the handle piece together.
13. Flip the coffee cup piece over so that the inside is facing up. Glue the handle onto one of the end tabs.
14. Put glue all along the end tab.
15. Bring together the end tabs to form cup. Hold together the seam until it has sealed.
16. Punch a bottom for the cup out of the blossom punch (item# 125603). Score each petal of the blossom by lining up the end of one of the petals with the side rail of the simply scored. Score along the 1” mark (or four score grooves in). Repeat for each petal.
17. Bend each petal along the score line. Put a piece of double-sided adhesive on each of the petals.
18. Remove adhesive liner. Adhere to the bottom of coffee cup. You will need to put your hand inside the cup to give the sides support when you are pressing down on each petal.
19. Here is what the bottom of the coffee cup looks like when the petals are adhered.
20. Punch six Eyelet Border Punch segments, starting with a piece of card stock ¾” wide. Angle cut each of the 3 scallop long sections.
21. Adhere each Eyelet Border piece to the rim of the coffee cup.
22. Fill the coffee cup with K-cups or other small treats. Decorate as desired.
