Craft Fair Idea - Fun K-Cup Holder with Falling for Leaves

Hello and Happy Tuesday evening! Welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by to hang out with me for a bit. Wow, what a day today has been...let's just chock it up to "one of THOSE days"! 
But, on a lighter note, I have a fun project to share with you today, using the gorgeous Falling For Leaves bundle found in the 2018 Holiday Catalog. This bundle is just beautiful and I wanted to do something fun with it, and right now is prime craft fair season so I am always looking for fun little projects to sell at my booths and this little K-cup holder fit the bill! 
This cute little holder uses a full sheet of cardstock, I used Early Espresso since I was going for a Fallish look. Starting with the 8.5" edge, I scored at 2" and 6.5". I then rotated to the 11" side and scored at 4", 6.25", 8.25" and 10.5". Once I completed all of my score lines, I cut away the areas marked with an X in the photo of the template below. Once those areas were removed, I cut up the score lines indicated with the arrows, that created the box tabs and that center tab, I did miter slightly on both sides. Then, before putting my box together, I punched out two 1.75" circles and marked where I wanted to punch my holes for my K-cups and I punched them out. Then, using Tear & Tape, I placed adhesive on the narrow end tab below the punched holes, and the outside of all the side tabs. I then rounded the top edge with the Trio punch and cut a piece of the Wood Textures DSP 4.25" x 2" and 4.25" x 1.75". I rounded 2 corners of the 2" piece and stamped the leaf image from the Falling For Leaves stamp set randomly over both pieces with Early Espresso ink. I then attached them to the box and then assembled the box. Once the box was full assembled, I cut the leaf shape from a piece of Crushed Curry cardstock and the intricate leaf was cut from a piece of Mango Melody and layered together. I then stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White with Early Espresso ink and punched out using the 2" circle punch and layered onto a piece of the Mango Melody punched with the Starburst punch. Both were attached to the box using Stampin' Dimensionals.  
That completes today's project. I hope you enjoyed it. If you would prefer to see this done in video, I did it during a Facebook Live and you can view that here.
Have a great night, until next time.
