Shellye McDaniel-Barista Coffee Box4


Shellye McDaniel: Give the coffee-lover in your life a special treat with a beautiful “Barista” coffee box!  All you need is a wooden box, the Barista Collection and your favorite coffee cup svg file or template.


Shellye McDaniel-Barista Coffee Box5


I purchased this wooden box from Hobby Lobby; it measures approximately 6.25”W X 5.5”H X 5”D. Start by spray painting the box (inside and out) with black.  After the paint is dry, cut strips of paper to cover the outer slats and glue them in place.  I traced the sides and the cut-outs for the handle onto paper and then trimmed out.  Use a sanding block to distress the edges if desired.

Apply medium-sized black Candy Dots to the outer edges of the slats so that they resemble nailheads.

For the coffee cup embellishment, I used a free svg file that I found online.

The embellishment was attached to the front of the box with foam adhesive.  I filled the inside of the box with paper shred and my mom’s favorite coffee!

What BG relic is in your stash?

From time-to-time, we’ll receive an email from a BG fan, asking us if we still have one of our older collections in stock. Usually, they are looking for either one of our premiere collections (Sublime, Motifica, etc.) or one of the more popular releases (Lime Rickey, Skate Shoppe, etc.).


So what is the oldest BG product you have sitting in your stash? It can be paper, stickers, embellishments or any BG product that is not a tool. Take a photo of your coveted and treasured item and post it on our Facebook page for all to see! From everyone who shares, we will draw a random winner to receive a super cool, super secret, don’t-want-to-miss-out-on-it prize! We may even sneak an image of it on our Facebook page later in the week. You have until 12pm on 7/27 to post your photo and we will draw a random winner on 7/31 at 2 pm MST. We can’t wait to see what’s in your stash!
