Some More K-Cups

Here are two more of the K-Cup holders that I made.  These two are all packaged up in a cello bag because the shows I do are outside.  The bag protects them from people's hands and any dust that is flying around.  If you want to make these remember that I made them for a specific brand,  Trader Joe's medium roast.  There are other templates on line if you want to use the original K-cup.

Here is an outline of how I made these.

1.   Cut your cardstock 4 X 10  1/4.  I used Stampin' Up! cherry cobbler and real red. 
2.  Score at 1  1/2, 2  1/8,  3  7/8,  6  3/8,  8  1/8,  8  3/4
3.  Starting at one end do a valley fold, 4 mountain folds, and one more valley fold.
4.  Fold on the score lines making sure to go over them with your bone folder.
5.  If you look at Saturday's post the side view shows how the everything folds up.  Punch each handle separately using the Stampin' Up! large oval punch.  I put some sticky strip to hold the handle together better.  The ribbon is just for show.
6.  Decorate.  I used retired Stampin' Up! DSP.  The coffee cup is stamped with Perfect Blend and cut out.  I also stamped the lid again and cut it out and attached with dimensionals.    Then I stamped the middle section again and cut it out so it looks like the wrapper around the cup.

I used my corner rounder on the handle if you like that look.  Just be sure that you do each side individually so you don't break your punch, 

I will be featuring bags, tags, and bows for the rest of the week.  Come back and take a look.


  1. Thank you, Sue, for the instructions! I can't wait to make some of these. I have a huge list of coffee drinkers that will love these as Christmas gifts. One question, did you secure the K-cups inside with a glue dot?

  2. It is a snug fit so I didn't use any adhesive to hold the K-cup inside. I guess you will be making a Trader Joe's run. The package only holds one cup and it isn't the traditional looking type. All the women buying it at Trader Joe's said they liked them and they were a good price. I have no idea as we have no K coffee maker and I don't even drink coffee.
