Coffee carton for a friend

KL Stampin N Scrappin Blog has a cool challenge to make a box or a basket. I didn't make anything 3D in a long time, so I was "due" ;) Found this amazing tutorial for coffee carton on Shannon Herbert's blog and I just had to make one too.For the base I used recycled CS from K&Co and for the boxes Martha Stewart DP. The paper pieced coffee cup and sentiment are from Flourishes set called Coffee with friends.
I'll fill up the boxes with different kinds of coffee beans (label them of course) and give it to my coffee loving friend as a sampler. :)
It could also be used for party favors if you fill them up with bulk candy, nuts or other goodies.

So pretty. I love seeing samples of items that you know are going to be used.

Will go check out that template.

I have so starred this on my google reader - I'm thinking it would be yummy for candies and chocolates as well! Or card-making embellies!
