Shelli's Cocoa Mug Box Gift

It's always a joy to watch Shelli Gardner, the co-founder and CEO of Stampin' Up!, demonstrate on stage! I was thrilled that she was present at the Lansing regional seminar a few weeks ago. Of course, she did not disappoint with her stamping presentation! Check out this cocoa mug that she made using the Fancy Favor box die as the base. (Click here to see Shelli's blog post about the Lansing Regional Seminar and this project.)

The base of this Cocoa Mug box is the Fancy Favor Box. For the handle, start with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch and the punch the 2-1/2" Circle Punch around it. Score, fold, and cut as shown on the second circle below. Cut slits in the side of the box and put the tabs from each end of the handle through the slits and adhere in opposite directions.

Shelli created small platform to put on the inside of her box so the cocoa bag has a little height. The cardstock was 8-1/2" x 3" and scored at 7/8", 2-7/8", 4-5/8", and 6-5/8". Use a 1" Circle to create a notch on one end as shown in the diagram below.
