INKspiration 4 U - Coffee holder!

Lots of cool projects yet to complete on the latest installments at the INKspiration 4 U class, but this project just spoke to me this early Sunday morning.  I am a coffee-holic, although I've tried to cut back, there often is just no subsitute for this needed morning ritual...

Working in an office gives this cocoa/coffee pocket project a lot of possibilities. It is a great gift idea!
I suffer from a grommet & eyelet setting phobia (ok, not really, but I do rarely set these on anything)... so since my supplies are "grommet-less," I created grommets using my 1/2" circle punch adhering the circles then using my Cropadile to punch holes in the centers after they were attached. I'm afraid I don't really know how to "lace" this yet, so that part is a work in progress.

It's a multi-step opening experience... shown below is the middle and inside pocket views with the surprise coffee packets you can hide inside.  I apologize my photos just cannot do the project justice...

Using some much loved, yet retired papers here (sage shadow base & ribbon) but combined with some Early Espresso (HAD to use that on this of course).  To better get the feel of this project, I took a short video of opening the inside pocket to reveal the coffee present packet hidden inside... check it out:

I've got to catch up on all the other projects I've been to slow to complete.
As always, you can check out INKspirations 4 U at Madeline Marcelo's
