These mini coffee cups, or espresso cups, are great for tiny gifts. They’re easy to decorate and fill. Today I’m sharing two different batches of these that I made. One batch of Christmas themed cups contains Starbucks Holiday Blend coffee k-cups. The other batch of coffee themed cups contain coffee flavored candies.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Made cup cover and belly band:

  • rolled a cup on a large piece of scrap paper, following it with a pencil
  • cut out the template with Paper Snips and wrapped it around a cup to make sure it fit
  • held the template on the cup with my fingers and drew a belly band onto the template with a pencil
  • used that to create a template for the belly band
  • covers and cut using Paper Snips from Coffee Break, Be Merry, and Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Papers (DSP)
  • belly bands cut using Paper Snips from DSP and from CS in Pool Party, Whisper White, Garden Green, and Cherry Cobbler

Stamped with the Hug in a Mug stamp set:

  • sentiment onto Whisper White card stock (CS) in Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso, Garden Green, and Cherry Cobbler inks

Stamped with the Merry Cafe stamp set:

  • sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White CS
  • snowflake in Cherry Cobbler ink above the sentiment

Die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits:

  • all sentiments
  • larger circles to layer with sentiment, from Pool Party, Early Espresso, Garden Green, and Cherry Cobbler CS

Assembled the cups:

  • covers glued onto the cups
  • belly bands glued onto the covers
  • sentiments layered with coordinating larger circles, then adhered to the cup lids with Stampin’ Dimensionals (The center part of the lid is lower than the rim.)
  • adhered a small Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the center of the stamped snowflakes

NOTE: The cups, lids, k-cups, and candies were all ordered from Amazon.com.
