Today I have another quick and cute project that would be perfect for gifting! This is a Hot Cocoa pouch – and holds hot cocoa, mini marshmallows and a candy cane. I don’t know about you, but when I have a cup of cocoa, I have to have marshmallows and a candy cane to stir it with! How about you? How do you like your hot cocoa?
Here’s how to make this pouch:
Start with a piece of Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (DSP), measuring 4 1/2 x 12, scored at 5 1/2 – or just eyeball it and fold the bottom up with just an inch at the top. Use tear and tape along the front, shorter panel, and create your pouch.
Use the circle punches – I used Whisper White and Red, but also created one with Crumb Cake and Pear Pizzazz – just pick what coordinates with your DSP. Punch a moose out of Basic Black cardstock.
Stamp “Merry Christmoose” onto a small strip of Whisper White cardstock.

This week I will be sharing some cute, quick little “gifties” to share with neighbors and friends over the holidays. Today’s project is a sweet little box that holds a cookie! I found some individually wrapped cookies that fit perfectly – I had a few extras, but somehow they got eaten so my box today has no cookie! These would also make a cute favor on your Christmas table for everyone.
Pair it with a cup of hot chocolate and you have a gift that will warm the heart of the recipient.
Here’s a quick video showing how to create this box:
Little Tip: keep the opening of the box at the top, so that the cookie can be removed without removing the wrap.
I used the Adhesive Sheets on the Real Red “Cookies” die-cut to easily adhere it to the project.
Check back tomorrow for another fun Christmas project!
Thanksgiving 2020 ……..It’s a different kind of Thanksgiving Day at our home, and I’m sure it’s different for many of you as well! Our gathering will be much smaller this year. We are missing many loved ones who normally join us for a wonderful day full of fun, love and laughter. I give thanks for them and the love we share- whether near or far.
It is a different Thanksgiving Day this year but there is still much to be grateful for- today, I give thanks for the abundant blessings in my life- Faith, Family, Good Health and Love. My cup overflows.
May your day be filled with gratitude, good food and love!
