Coffee Break Bookmark

Today is day 4 of the Coffee Lovers Spring Hop.

I have a fun project today, one day I noticed that the top flap of a K Cup Box would make a great bookmark.  I tell ya, I think only a crafter could see that.  Ha!  So I set out to upcycle my box flap.  You'll see below how I did it below .  It is not hard at all.

Take the top flap that pulls up when you open your K Cup Box.  Whether it is tea or coffee, it doesn't matter, they are all made the same.  Here is a pic of mine that I started with.

Then trace you paper you use to cover it with and glue or tape it down.  Now just embellish as you choose.  I kept mine pretty flat.  I don't like too much bulk with my bookmarks.  Here is my finished bookmark.

I used Doodlebug's super cute papers.  The hot and cold cup paper is called "Coffee Break", and the image of the fun baked goods is from Doodlebug too.  Then I finished it off with some red and white twine.  Here is a pic of it in my book.

I just love this and am now saving all my K Cup Box lids to make bookmarks.  I hope I inspired you to upcycle some too.  Thanks for stopping by and have a fun time hopping.
