If you're a coffee or tea drink and buy it in a "to go", you might be familiar with the coffee cup wrap. It's a cardboard wrapper that protects your hand from the hot cup.
Last week, my daughter Kelsie had an all day dance conference at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. It's a a little over 2 hours away and I didn't want her driving back late at night by herself, so I went with her for the day.
She danced and I blogged and drank coffee at Panera all morning long. I also did a little shopping, but Panera was my home in the afternoon too!!
Here is the cup wrapper I saved.
Here's the thrifty gift tag I made with it!
Just add ribbon and hang from any gift bag.
Open up any cardboard wrapper and use your favorite paper punch...
or cut any shape free hand.
I used a small punch for a hole for the ribbon.
I love the texture of this paper...like a waffle pattern.
Save tissue paper when it's given to you in gift bags. When you need it for another gift and it's all wrinkled...you can iron it smooth again. Irons out perfectly
I'm sure there's lots more we can do with these coffee cup wrappers...
- place cards
- book markers
- small ornaments
- paper chains for the Christmas tree
- You can also use the whole cup wrapper as a Paper Pattern if you want to make one out of fabric!!
Hmmm...let's think of more.
Have a great Thursday and I hope it's thrifty!!
