Within the next week, my garden room will be built and ready for me to move in! I’ve been looking forward to a room where I can do all the things I love to do like craft, blog, and relax! Our house is small with no space for me to just sit and relax…so I had one built! I’m excited to show off my new garden room, so I’m going to have an open house and invite a few friends over. I will serve my coffee of choice and some treats. I’ve also made these adorable recyclable K-Cup® pods party “Thank You” favors to give out to each guest who came by. Step-by-step instructions are below in case you would like to make these too.
Do you think your guests would love to receive one of these recyclable K-Cup® pods thank you party favors as a thank you for coming gift? Doesn’t everyone drink coffee that you know? Well, maybe there’s those few people. But seriously, I don’t know one person who doesn’t own a Keurig® by now. Not bragging, but we have 3.
I hope you find this craft to be easy and fun to make. Start collecting your tissue rolls now! I’m just down right excited that the K-Cup® pods fit inside the ends.
Recyclable K-Cup®Pods Party Thank You Favors
Supplies you will need:
- 6-9 Toilet tissue cardboard rolls (same size) – start collecting now!
- Several different colors of matching card stock
- A “Thank You” stamp
- Two-sided tape
- Black ink pad
- Washi tape
- 12-18 Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods (2 for each Thank You holder)
- Gift tag (either make one to use as a pattern or buy them)
- Hole punch
- Paper cutter (if you have one)
Steps to make craft.
Step 1: Cut card stock the width of the roll. For the length, make sure the end overlaps onto the other side of card stock. Place 4 or 5 strips of 2-sided tape lengthwise on roll. Peel 2-sided tape off (if you’re using this kind of tape), then very carefully place the roll on the back side of card stock and start rolling the roll, making sure the card stock stays straight, on the card stock all the way to the end. Place 1 or 2 strips of 2-sided tape on end of card stock and adhere.
Step 2: First, to hide the line on the roll from overlapping of card stock, put a strip of cute & matching washi tape over it lengthwise. Or, you can use a piece of different colored card stock. I love using washi tape, so anytime I get a chance to use it, I do. Now take a long piece of string and go around the roll several times and tie a knot.
Step 3: Cut out your tag. I used a price tag that was shaped just like a gift tag I wanted to use – got lucky there. It’s really simple to make one. The size of mine that I used is 1-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ and just cut the top sides off at an angle, then punch a hole at the top. Next, open up your stamp pad, ink up your stamp (which can be found at any craft store) and stamp your tag. Last, stick on side of the string in hole and tie into a bow.
Step 4: Take two K-Cup® pods, preferably Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods, because….well, they are my favorite and makes a great cup of coffee, and put one in each end of the decorate tissue roll and gently push in. The K-Cup® pods fit perfectly!!
You’ve seen me use specific K-Cup® pods in my craft today, so let me tell you about them.
It’s the new Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods that can be enjoyed right at home! I’ve had the chance to sip on a couple (hard not to) and let me tell you, they are very delicious. It’s not necessary to add anything else with it, just brew (see below how to) and stir, sip & enjoy!! I love these because they are made from milk and no artificial flavors are included. They come in 3 great Starbucks® signature flavors (Caramel, Mocha (real cocoa), and Vanilla) and 2 Starbucks® seasonal flavors (Pumpkin Spice (real pumpkin) and Peppermint Mocha, available for a limited time), all available at your local grocery store.
All it takes to enjoy a delicious cup of brewed Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods is two easy steps. Here’s how:
Step 1: Pour a flavor packet into your mug and place it on the drip tray of your Keurig® brewer.
Step 2: Using the 8-oz. setting brew the K-Cup® pod into the mug and stir!
That’s it! Now enjoy! So, don’t you think these recyclable K-Cup®Pods party thank you favors would make great gifts? I’m thinking teacher gifts, Scout leader gifts, girlfriend gifts, etc.
Here’s the flavors again – Caramel, Mocha (real cocoa), and Vanilla, and 2 Starbucks® seasonal flavors (Pumpkin Spice (real pumpkin) and Peppermint Mocha, these two are only available for a limited time). Oh, which shall you choose first!!
While you’re enjoying this nice autumn weather, be sure to be one of the first to stir, sip and enjoy the new Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods and let me know which flavor is your favorite. AND…If the rain holds up I’ll have my new garden room next week!! Be on the lookout for an exclusive post about that!!
