COFFEE CARRIER


Hello my lovely Ladies, My dear friend Sheila, lent
me her camera so I could take some pics. I had more
in the process but those are gone so I can only show the
finished  stuff...
My DF Sheila always brings us coffee from Timmie's so
she carries them in the silly trays they use. I wanted to make
it a lot easier for her to carry.
I started with a cardboard box, it was about 2 1/2 in tall,
 then I used Kleenex boxes to build it up to reach over the
coffee cup, added my own handles from the Kleenex box
I even padded it so it would be smooth on her hands.
I covered it with used coffee filter with podge.
Then added some coffee embellishments.
The inside I used a thick padding to mold around
the cups so they stay stable. I'm quit proud how
it turned out making it from scratch..
Thanks so much for looking.
Hope every one is having a wonderful Easter..
NAMESTA!!!

Wow, how creative it this?! I don't think I've seen a made-from-scratch coffee carrier before ... what a thoughtful gift for your friend. She must have been so thrilled! Hopefully she's crafty too and appreciates all your hard work : ) Love all the details you added, like the handle padding and stabilizing materials inside.

Hope you have a very blessed Easter, Dianne!
