Save the Date Coffee Cups

Last year I shared this cute prototype for a save the date card we used for our cafe themed women’s retreat. Well, I just wanted to let you know that I have updated that post with all the templates I created and used to make it. I also included some tips to make your project even easier!

These would be great for save the date or invitations for cafe themed parties, retreats or weddings. You could also use this for thank you notes or even just a note of encouragement if you change the tag.

If you use it, I’d love to see a pic. Just leave me a link so I can see!

Sweet Life Cafe Women’s Retreat Save the Date Card


I invited myself onto the women’s retreat committee this year and I’ve been having so much fun already!  I’m sure I’ll have more to show in the next couple months as it approaches, but this is a prototype I made up in the fall.  The tag is something I designed and hand lettered myself.  It says: something sweet is brewing.  Unfortunately when the scan was printed out, the printer had a streak.  Since it was the prototype, I left it in.  I couldn’t find a picture of the final project… if I do I’ll add it in later.

We made up about 100 of these in the end.  It was a little crazy, but they were so fun!  I just couldn’t help myself! 🙂

I’m adding the templates for you, so that you can make your own without having to figure everything out for yourself. Click on the links below and either download (for the pdf) or “save as” for the jpg images.

Jpg of the Cup Template: click here and “save as” the image.
Jpg of the Sleeve Template: click here and “save as” the image.
Jpg of the Something is Brewing Artwork: click here and “save as” the image. (This one isn’t a whole sheet for you to print, but you could make your own.

Insert the Cup Template into your word processing software and move it to the back. Then insert a text box over one of them and fill it with your text. Copy and paste to the others, or repeat the steps over the other cups.

Trace or print the Sleeve Template on the back of colored card stock or scrapbook paper and cut them out. Fold them around the cups after they are cut out and glue, tape or use a sticker to hold them shut.

Mount the “Something is Brewing” Artwork onto paper or card stock and mount it on colored or decorative paper. Punch a hole in one corner and tie it around the sleeve with your ribbon, raffia, or twine of choice.

Using double sided tape, insert a piece of chocolate or other candy under the ribbon.

I hope you enjoy this project! It would be great for save the date or invitations! You could even use them as thank you notes or even just a note of encouragement with a different tag.
