For those of you whom know me - I have a SERIOUS love for coffee! In fact, I'm reasonably sure they will have to pry my Starbucks mug from my hand when I die! So it was no surprise that I was intrigued with the idea of purchasing a Keurig Coffee maker.
A fReSh cUp Of CoFfEe AnYtImE i WaNtEd OnE????
Where do I sign up?
...'Cept, I was really concerned at all the waste caused by those tiny plastic and foil K-Cups. I mean, they are kinda difficult to refill for reuse. So, I was going to have to find a way to recycle them for some other project...or I might be forced to give up my
So check out what I came up with!
Step 1: Enjoy Coffee, and allow grinds to cool off. Remove foil top to expose grinds and dry. Mix grinds with rich, garden soil, and refill KCup. Press a seed into the soil as recommended on the back of your favorite seed packet. Reseal the top with Glad Press and Seal plastic wrap. Set aside.
Step 2: Gather what you will need to make an attractive topper - like the floral themed Bugaboo Stamps digital stamp I've used below, assorted paper scraps, and round punches or diecutters!
Step 3: Punch out all shapes as shown below and glue atop the plastic wrapped cup!
The one I have pictured in my final picture below was 1 of 50 that I donated for a Charity Baby Shower with the poem (shown) and instructions on how to grow your plant.! Easy Peasy and such fun! I'm sure the moms-to-be who get them will be delighted! Don't you think?
