Need a hostess gift?  How about something small for a teacher or coach?  Choose your favorite coffees, teas, or hot chocolate, and this K-Cup holder would be perfect!

I made this using my Silhouette die cutting machine and an svg file from the “Christmas Cafe” kit from svgcuts.com.  The kit contains several projects including two boxes that would be great for cookies, nuts, or candy.  One is round, and the other is shaped like a stocking.  There are three different K-Cup holders – the Christmas tree shown above, a snowman, and a reindeer.  In addition to the svg files, there is a tutorial video to show you how the pieces go together.

On the sample shown on the website, Mary uses gold pipe cleaners for the garland.  I created a cut file to make my garland out of card stock.  (This file is not included with the kit.)

For the base of the box, I used Deep Green Card Stock from Cre8-a-Page (aka Creative Assembly & Packaging) that I ordered on amazon.  The decorative paper on the front is “Green Plaid” by Hot Off the Press/Paper Pizazz.  I used Gina K Metallic Gold card stock for the stars, garland, and trunk.  I chose these Folgers K-Cups because I liked that they were red.  Any standard sized K-cups will work.

There is a file for a decorative back panel which I did not use.  Here is a view of the back; the K-Cups are inserted through holes in the front and stick out through holes in the back.  Once in, they are kind of wedged in there and don’t really move.
