Hi Y'all! These were so much fun to make!!! :)
I needed gifts for some of my kid's teachers. (Yes, I am late postign this but better late than never!). It is hard to think of somethign that would be good for both men and women. I have a ton of pictures, but this was a lot of steps so Iguess it fits. I used Emma's stamp set to stamp and diecut the little coffee cups and they are awesome to make - easy and fun! I also bought Starbucks gift cards and asked them for empty coffee cups. I made coffee bean cookies by making pre-made sugar cookies and then frosting them with regular frosting that I mixed about 4T of Karo syrup to so that it would harden. I then melted some choc chips and traced the cookie to make them look more like coffee beans rather than just a blob. They didn't turn out as cute as I ahd pictured. I wanted small, thick cookies but ended up with regular sized cookies - but that's okay. They turned out just fine. I added the cooked to a cello bag and tied with baker's twine. Put the cookies and the gift card in the cup then cello'd the cup and more baker's twine tied the bow and added the card. That's it. They loved them! :) YAY!
I found the idea on my BBFF Christy's blog and knew they would be PERFECT - I was right! :)
