DeNami Design: Coffee Gift Card Box

Hi Everyone! Elizabeth here with another post for DeNami Designs. I know a lot of coffee drinkers but personally I’m not one of them. I don’t like coffee at all. So I struggle with what to get coffee loving friends and family. Then I figured out that there is no better gift than a gift card to their favorite coffee shop and for most of my friends and family that is Starbucks. I used Starbucks colors as the inspiration for making a gift card box.


This project is very easy and fast to make, so you can make lots of them for birthdays, holidays and even parties! First I made the gift card box using the Lawn Fawn Pillow Box die. I chose a pattern paper that is white with green polka dots. Assembling the boxes easy! Just fold the 2 score lines that die creates for you and use tape runner or liquid glue on the tab. The ends of the box have flaps that you just fold in. One of the flaps has a notch and I do recommend folding that flap in first to get a clean look. Next, I stamps the Medium Happy-Cino on smooth white cardstock and colored it in with Copic markers. I kept the coloring simple by not doing any shading but if you want to, you can because the image is large enough. I used a scalloped circle punch to cut out the coffee and then adhered it with liquid glue. I hope that you enjoyed my project for today and that it inspires you to make some fun gift card boxes!


Love You More Than Coffee!

Today’s project was inspired my husband, Mike, and his love of coffee! I thought to myself what would be a great card for Mike to give to me for Valentine’s Day? That’s when I remembered the new DeNami coffee stamps and said perfect!

The card base is a piece of white cardstock cut to make a 5” square top folding card. The red polka dot pattern paper is cut to 4.75”x4.75” and the stamped panel is 4”x4”. I used a pencil and a ruler to draw a 1” grid on my stamp panel so that I would know where to stamp the square stitched border. I used grey dye ink to stamp the border inside each of the square of the grid. Next, I stamped the coffee cup in red dye ink inside of each of the squares. After looking high and low for my good eraser, I erased the gridlines that I had created. On a scrap of white cardstock, I stamped the square border in the same red dye ink and the owl in the tea cup in black dye ink. With Copic markers, I colored in the owl and the teacup. On the edge of the paper I used a grey marker to give it a more finished look. For the greeting I used an alphabet stamp set from Lawn Fawn and stamped the greeting in black dye ink on both the front of the card and the inside of the card.

As always, below is a list of supplies I used with links where you can purchase. Enjoy!
