Photo Tutorial to make a Size A2 Coffee Cup Card

Howdy Crafters - thanks for stopping by today!
Here are photos of how I created my Coffee Cup Card  & Envelope- Size A2. Enjoy! Gail

Please note - this idea for me to create this card is from watching Lorri Heiling video on You Tube on how to make a Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder-  to view her video - click HERE.

Supplies [see photo directions following this supply list]
Scor-Pal or scoring tool
Cardstock of your choice
Embellishments - twine, ribbon,  buttons, etc.
Embossing folder - I used Swiss Dot - A crimper can also be used.
For base of card  9 1/2 by 3 5/8 cardstock

Score in half
Place folded end on Scor-Pal - with pencil mark dot on 3 inch mark - flip over and do the same on the other fold
Use a ruler and draw from tick mark a diagonal line to top of the card - do same on the other side - CUT off  to create cup shape for the coffee card
Diagonal lines cut off cardstock
Cut your middle piece for the cup 4 1/4 x 3 and lay on top of the cup front
Middle piece positioned where I want it on the cup - flip over and draw lines to trim excess off the middle piece
Lines do not have to be drawn if you can trim without doing so - so this is optional
Add ribbon or Washi tape - etc to middle
Glue middle section on the front of the card base
Embellish as desire - add more die cuts with sentiment, etc. I add twine and a button
Top of cup - cut one piece 4 inches by 1 inches and a center piece for the top 4 inches by 1/4 inches
Round the corners of the top piece on one length only - emboss or run through a crimper - glue the 4 x 1/4 inch piece in the middle - see the next photo
The top is ready to be glued on the front of the card - line the top of the Top piece to the Top of the card and glue down - remember there is a overhang - so put your glue on the card top rather than on the assembled top piece
Front of card completed - glue a matching piece of Washi tape on envelope if you wish
Inside of Card - white cardstock measures 5 inches by 3 inches - make tick marks at 1/2 inch on both sides
Show tick marks and using a ruler to draw diagonal lines to trim off- then glue down inside of card
I added Happy Halloween Stamp and Die cut Lamp-post inside this card
