Pinch Me!! MTME Group Post :]

Okay, fair warning...this will be a QUICK post!  Thank goodness, right?!  LOL  I decided late this evening to whip up a Pinch Me template to share on the last day of My Time Made Easy peeks...it IS a group post after all :O)  My main rationale tonight was to share how quick and easy this template is to put together!  This is what I came up with:
I wanted a masculine themed project, so I literally printed my Natural Wonder cattails paper, cut out the base of the template using my Cricut, cut out the back/top flap from Chocolate Chip cs, and adhered.  I added some May Arts Jute twine, a big, brown button from my stash, and a tag (SU label punch).  My sentiment is from the new MTME Grab A Cup Sentiments.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE this particular sentiment and have been itching to use it since I first saw it! 
Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE coffee (espresso), so I can totally relate to the sentiment!  LOL  I made this for my coffee buddy at work.  I filled it with chocolate covered espresso beans.  Cute, right?!  I would LOVE to receive this gift!  So simple...so quick...yet so FUN!  You have to give this simple template a try!  Mass producing would be simple with this one.  I was so happy when Lauren created this particular template because I knew I wanted to make a bunch for co-workers over the holidays.  You know, to add the little gifts you hand out.  Nothing major, but a little something to let them know I'm thinking of them.  One year I gave everyone a mini hand sanitizer and my favorite chapstick - Burt's Bees!  This package would have held it perfectly! 

Okay, be sure to check out the rest of the team's projects today!  Their links are in my left sidebar <--

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week :O)
