Kcup Elf Legs

I needed a quick gift for a coffee loving friend, but wrapping a box of K-cups just didn't seem festive enough. I used the fact that "Elf" is this persons favorite holiday movie and ran with the idea.

1.) use a small piece tape and make a mini roll and stack 4 cups together. Repeat so you have two stacks.

2.) Cut a 12x12 piece of card stock in half into two 6x12 inch rectangles. Use a Cricuit machine (or you can cut out by hand if you are really good) two elf shoes. These measure about 2" by 3 1/2"

3.) Lay the cuts on their side and roll them into a tube.

Wrap them so that the top of the paper is even with the top Kcup. The bottom cup should stick out.

4.) Tape the shoes onto the bottom of the 'pant legs'

5.) I taped the legs together so they would stand.

Here is my dog being very curious about these elf legs standing in the kitchen.

Here you have a fun set of Kcup Elf legs for the coffee lover in your life this holiday season!
