A Winter Warm Gift of Cocoa

Happy 2019 and Happy Winter to all of my crafty friends out there. Tracy here, and today I have a fun little winter themed project to share. A gift of cocoa is the perfect gift to warm the tummy of someone you care about on a cold winter’s day. This is a quick and easy project to create, which also makes it easy to create multiples of for party favors, teachers gifts to name a few.

Winter Warm Gift Base

Start with two pieces of cardstock: 10.75 x 2.25-inch and 2.25 x 2.75-inch.

For the small cardstock piece (2.25 x 2.75-inch), score at the 0.25-inch mark on either end. Using a 1.75-inch circle punch or die, cut a hole in the middle of the cardstock.

With the larger cardstock piece (10.75 x 2.25-inch), score the following marks at: 0.5-inch, 1.75-inch, 4.25-inch, 6.75-inch, 9.25-inch, and 10.5-inch. This piece can be folded like the photo below. It will create a shape similar to a milk carton.

Using the Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/8 inch, you can adhere the smaller piece in place within the larger piece of cardstock.

The inner piece should simply keep the K-Cup in place.

Embellishing the Package

Cut pieces of winter-themed patterned paper to cover the outside panels of the mini carton. Adhere them to the cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

A final touch was to add a red ribbon bow to the top of the carton.
