When I saw the new Graphic 45 paper release of Home Sweet Home I knew what I wanted to make! Something I needed desperately in my kitchen. I drink LOTS of coffee ehhh? Yes, indeed! More than my fair share! I am known for leaving cups of coffee from room to room and many a document, letter and paper all have coffee stains...my stamp of approval! Anyway...To make this beloved concoction of loveliness in the "GOTTA HAVE IT NOW" way of things, I brew it it my Keurig! Yes, there are so many different kinds of pod brewers, this is the one that I love! It's amazingly fast, just throw in a pod, place your cup under the machine and press brew! A nice fresh cup of java or tea!
So, without further ado, I went to work on a couple of designs. I came up with chicken and a pig....Why? The paper reminds me of my Grandmother...affectionately known in my family as Genie! Why? I have no idea! It's just what we called her! I'm sure one of my sister's had something to do with that! LOL! Genie was such a lovely lady and the woman could cook! Like really COOK! No, I'm serious! SHE COULD COOK!!!! She had a beautiful white and yellow kitchen that was always filled with sunlight, ceramic roosters and always smelled of fresh baked rolls, citrus and chicken and dumplings! Always a treat for the senses. So, inspiration and design in hand...I made a Chicken and Pig Pod Holder. They hold 8 pods of you favorite podded beverage on one side and swivel around on a hidden lazy Susan for the remaining 8 pods....A total of 16 divine beverage pods! Heart of Texas Studio took the idea and ran with it and created a Texas Boot Pod holder! So amazing!
Today, I would like to offer kits of these three fun designs in my shop. If you are interested, the kit comes with a little tutorial, (6) laser cut shapes (You glue two together to make one totally rigid piece.), (8) dowels, the pre-cut 2X heavy chipboard base pieces, plastic lazy Susan and (2) .SVG and (2) .PDF files to digitally cut or trace the shape to adhere to the laser cut pieces. All you need is a little glue, paint and some patterned paper!
Here are some pictures of the completed kits...
Hope you give it a try! So handy, if I do say so myself! Please check out my online store above by clicking on the "SHOP" tab to purchase the kits for these three cool projects...
