Diva Dare "Perk Up" Coffee Sleeve Redux

It's a new Diva Dare over on the Verve Stamps blog. Get your mojo rolling with something to "Perk Up" someone. Today I'm sharing how I took the dare with this little coffee cup treat and what might be a redux on the DIY coffee sleeve or is it the "Design your own mug" insert.

This cup is filled with K-cup® pods and long stir sticks and kept warm with a DIY pocket sleeve to keep the sentiments fresh every time you have a new cup. Hey, it's just another way to send those little sticky note reminders but using your crafting supplies.

Stamps: More than Love, Poppy Birthday, Small Phrases (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Kraft, White (Wausau), Real Red, Basic Black (Stampin' Up), green pattern paper stash, clear acetate (from my art store roll)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento, Tsukineko), Real Red (Stampin' Up)
Accessories: Pastel Polka Ribbon Collection (Verve Stamps), Heart Quartet Die, Flag It Die Set, Build a Poppy Die (Verve Stamps), Sewing machine, clean latte cup, K-cup® pods, drink stir sticks, circle punch, Crop-a dile, black brads (Prima Marketing or Maya Road)
