My husband buys whole coffee beans at Fresh Market and brings them home to grind himself. This week, I confiscated the paper coffee bag and upcycled it! I covered the store logo with a quick coat of gesso. I used a stencil and paints to create my own design. I left the coffee bean illustration that was previously on the bag and colored it in with chalks.
I used the Sizzix Mug and Spoon Die to create a fun shaped tag. I added layers and layers of paints and inks to achieve a worn, patina.
I am really pleased with the way this evolved and I hope to re-use more packaging in the future.
