DIY Custom Coffee Sleeves and Tags

Thanks to my talented graphic designer sister, we were blessed with custom graphics for our wedding. I loved the personal flair it added to everything. And these are graphics that we can still use for lots of other things! We had this first one made into a rubber stamp (about $10 at, bought a stamp pad ($5) and then stamped some kraft paper coffee cup sleeves (about $20 for 250 on ebay). Combine that with plain white cups and black lids, and we instantly had our own custom coffee cups, which were perfect for our wedding espresso bar with a custom coffee menu that yours truly created. Now I use these cups and sleeves at my little personal home coffee shop. Love it! We also used this same stamp on the little brown paper bags at our candy bar.

The second graphic we had was used for tags to tie up our cutlery. We printed them on kraft paper purchased from Michael's (we kind of have an obsession with "brown paper packages tied up with string"), and then they were punched out with a gift tag punch. A regular hole punch on top and some chunky jute string and knots completed our look. 

If you're interested in custom graphics send me a comment and your email address I'll put you in contact with my sister.
