Coffee Gifts

For quite some time I have had an idea in the back of my mind - a gift I am going to make for my mom.  She is 92 and lives by herself.  She used to buy coffee infusion bags, like tea bags, for making an individual cup of coffee.  We can't find them any more so I am going to make her some.  The Coffee Lovers Bloghop spurred me on to make the containers for these bags.
This is an actual white coffee bag that the Kraft Journal used to carry.  It is discontinued now but I still had a couple in my stash.  The striped paper has also been in my stash for a long time. 
The image of the coffee bag and beans is a  GKD stamp, colored with Copics.   I wrote "mom" and drew the heart by hand.
The image is cut out with a Spellbinder Superecllipse die.
I was pretty sure I still had one heart button kicking around in my button box. Yes! 
Here is a close up of the coffee flow thru bag.  I will be making at least 50 of these to put into the white/decorated bag.

Not sure if I will put decaf or high octane infusion bags into this gift bag.  But whichever, I will be making both.  Come back tomorrow and see what I made for the other coffee infusion bags.

    PS: I used to sell T-Sacs for DIY tea bags in a Tea Shop I worked in. The shop is gone but I'm hooked on loose tea so Email me if you are interested in where I buy mine, Marsha. :-)
