A Little Java to Get You (MFT) Hoppin'!

Hello! It's time for another My Favorite Things Blog Hop! Our mid-month release features two new sets, Rainy Day Friends and I Need Coffee Flopsey. Both will be available tonight at midnight! If you haven't seen all the fantastic projects along the Hop so far, go back to visit Kim and start from there! And keep on going 'til the end, because blog candy awaits you! :)

Also, be sure to leave a little love for the Sweet Sixteen's newest members, Barbara and Kathy! :)

Before I show you my project, I want to wish my husband Chris a Happy Anniversary! 19 years -- it's hard to believe! Thanks for supporting me and letting me do what I do -- you're the best!!! :)

Back to our regularly scheduled programming...

I used I Need Coffee Flopsey to make this fun gift box full of coffee beans. I covered the wooden box (purchased at Michaels for $1.99) with paper, then I sanded and inked all the edges. I embellished with ribbon and a button from the Cup o' Buttons Summer Collection.


I stamped and colored Flopsey, leaving the ears "out of the box." I sponged around the edges of the image panel, then I added some yellow flock to Flopsey's slippers! The image panel is mounted onto the front of the box with dimensionals.



You're finished at my stop! Now it's time to see what the very talented Natalie Dever has created! Thanks so much for hopping by! :)
