Coffee To Go

I hate to waste, and I had some of the paper left that I used for my french fry "coffee" box.  I always carry those instant coffee packs (in a zip top plastic bag) from Starbucks in my purse, because I have been places that don't serve coffee when I really need a cup (usually at softball/football games).  

Don't you think this is much cuter than a snack bag?  ; )

I found these cute little boxes at Michael's for $1.00.

I traced around the box.

Made a slit and hole for the button on the front.

Punched holes for the elastic.

Mod Podged it, and held it all together with my awesome Dollar Store plastic clothes pins.  I love these things.  I use them for EVERYTHING.  From chip bags to holding my plastic tablecloth on my outside table.      Sorry, I got off on a tangent, I'm back now, and, on to the project.

It dried and came out pretty good.

While it was drying, I put a little glue on the end of the elastic to make it easier to get back through those little holes.

Of course, it has burlap (I love burlap), flowers and coffee beans.

I have enough coffee, cream, and sugar for three cups of coffee in there.  I did forget to picture my little green coffee stopper from Starbucks.  I keep one with me all the time.  I can use it to stir or if they forget to give me one, I have one for the ready -- no spills.

It kind of matches my travel cup (I take it everywhere) -- YEAH.

Happy Coffee Drinking!!
