Perk Up! K-Cup gift holder

I have a gift set to show today. I am using the sketch from this week's Verve's Viva La Verve Week 4 (VLVJUL2012)! Maureen is the hostess this week! Great sketch, Moe! 
I am using Verve's Better With You, Love Notes, Sunny Days, and Sip and Savor stamp sets. I combined these images with the coordinating Verve Cut Above Classy Label, From the Heart, and Leafy Sprigs dies. 

For this card I chose to make a little K-cup gift holder.  I wanted something that is pretty simple to put together, but in no way compromises the integrity of the K-cup when you use it in your machine.  No adhesives were used directly to the cup itself.  

I started with a strip of card stock   1 3/4 wide and 9 inches long.  I stamped the sentiment from Better with You set alternating the pattern a bit as I went using Memento cocoa ink.  I added the coffee spill rings in Ranger brushed corduroy.  I then added the tiny heart image from Sip and Savor to fill in the empty spaces.  I stamped both sides of the card stock using the opposite colors inside than out.  I scored my lines, added a piece of score tape to the top then die cut the little cut out in the top for a tiny little handle.  I ticket edge notched the corners.  I added a corrugated thin cardboard band around the K-cup that fits snug but is not glued to the K-cup at all.  Just slips off.  I finished with a little heart tag with the coordinating dp.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
