Trendy Twine ~ Pumpkin Spice Latte and Holder

Good morning! Today is my day to post on the Trendy Twine blog.  Fall is in full swing and with that comes...pumpkin spice lattes!  So that is exactly what I have to share with you today.
I started out by creating a holder for the Mini Coffee Cup.
Here are the instructions on how to make it:
Cut a piece of patterned paper 2.5"x11".  Score it at 4.5", 7", 7.75" and 10.25".  Cut or punch a 2" circle between the last two score lines.  If your patterned paper is once sided, like mine was (DCWV's Pumpkin Patch stack), you also need a 2-1/2"x4-3/8" piece of the same paper.
You also need a coordinating paper cut in pieces of 3-1/2"x2-1/4" and 1/2"x2-1/4".
The extra piece of paper that is the same as the holder needs to be adhered on the front of the back panel, lining it up at the top and sides.  Then glue the 3/4" flap to the front of the back panel.  Finally, adhere the larger coordinating paper onto the front of the back panel and the narrow piece to the front of the base.  And voila!  You have your holder!
I also wrapped patterned paper around the mini coffee cup and some Totally Chocolate Trendy Twine with a pumpkin charm from Blue Moon Beads.  I wrapped Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine around the back to secure a tag that I punched out with a Fiskars tag punch, added a Hello Fall Page Dot to the top and stamped a sentiment from APB Happy Thanksgiving stamps.
For the top of the mini coffee cup, the brown paper was 1-3/8" circle and then I used the pumpkin from the APB Hello Fall planner stamps to create a sweet topper.
And yes! The back is even decorated!  I adhered an orange coin envelope (only putting ATG down the center of the envelope) which was stamped with a sentiment from the APB Happy Thanksgiving stamp set and the acorn from APB Hello Fall Planner stamps.  I used a Hello Fall Page Dots on the flap and created a tassel and bow with Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine.  The Coffee Planner Clip holds the flap shut.
Once the paper clip is taken off, you can get the gift card inside!
And very possibly the best part of all, are the treats inside the Mini Coffee Cup :)
Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
