Wintertime Greetings! Although Christmas is over, I still find the need for an occasional last-minute or forgotten gift. So today, I’m sharing this cute Warm Wishes Hot Cocoa Gift Set as a winter warm-up. What do you think?
Hot Cocoa Gift Set Up
I’m using a tote bag die, thin chipboard and scrapbook paper. You can buy ready-made versions in the craft stores if you don’t happen to own a similar die.
I cut the paper, Adhesive Sheets 12×12 inch and chipboard to the same size. Adhere them together before die-cutting. If you’re using a pre-made box, try disassembling, tracing and adhering as done above.
After die-cutting and assembling the boxes, I wanted to make a larger box for them to nest inside. Measure the width and depth of the two boxes together and then cut a strip of paper, adding 1-inch on all sides. The 1-inch addition creates the sides of the box.
Next, I cut a strip from the leftover chipboard and adhered it to the bottom with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill. The sides are attached using Extreme Double-Sided Tape ½ inch.
For the edge of the box, I’m using Extreme Double-Sided Tape ⅛ inch to hold the pom trim in place. The strong bond of this tape works beautifully with ribbon and fabric.
Next craft the tag using a matching stamp from the same collection. Stamped the image using black ink onto white cardstock and color with markers. To color the nose, stamp the face onto a piece of an Adhesive Sheet.
Carefully trim out the and then add it over the original stamped image.
After removing the white liner from the Adhesive Sheet, sprinkle on some pretty yellow barite glitter.
In keeping with the yellowy-gold glitter theme, I’m also using it on a couple of the snowflakes from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit.
To complete the Hot Cocoa Gift Set, tuck in a bag of mini marshmallows and cocoa mix and tie on a cute little wooden spoon!
Thanks for joining me and Happy New Year!
