EPB Coffee Pot Pictorial

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

I absolutely LOVE Linda's teapot and while creating the one I shared with you here, I thought how I could adapt it for those of us who can't do without our coffee! Here's what you'll need to create my coffee pot body...

Card: Tempting Turquoise measuring 10 3/4" x 8¼" and Whisper White measuring 4¼" x 1½" (6 pieces) OR DSP
Ink: Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry
Stamp set: Gorgeous Grunge
Tools and embellishments: Envelope Punch Board, Simply Scored and stylus
Adhesives: Tear & Tape and Sticky Strip (retired) OR Tombow

Score the card on the long side at 1½", 3", 4½", 6", 7½" and 9". Turn and score the short side at 1¼" and 6". Fold and burnish all score lines, then use the Envelope Punch Board to punch along the 1¼" score line

Attach your stamped card or DSP panels after rounding the corners with the reverse punch on the EPB, notch in and apply tape

Flip the card over and add tape

Fold the upper section down and secure the short edge. Snip up the bottom scorelines. Doing it this way is a lot less fiddly

Up end the piece and secure the first two opposing flaps, starting either side of the untaped one. Remove the tape from the second flap (seen horizontal here)

Repeat the above with the second set of opposing tabs

Secure the final set, finishing with the untaped tab

Turn it the right way and you should have something like this

For the spout, I changed the dimensions given in Linda's teapot tutorial a bit. Start with a piece of card measuring 2½" x 5 3/4", then score on the short side at ½", then follow Linda's tutorial. This makes for a shorter spout, echoing those on real coffee pots. The lid is the same as the one I used for the teapot. My pictorial is here. I used two Deco Labels Framelits to create the handle...

Note, the photo above makes the coffee pot look a bit shorter than it is.
