Stampin’ Up! Merry Moose Hot Cocoa Pouch

Merry Moose Bundle DSP Gift Bag by Laura Milligan Single

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?

Merry Moose Bundle DSP Gift Bag by Laura Milligan

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.

Christmas Cookies in a Decorated Stampin’ Up! Acetate Gift Box

Nothing's Better Than Cookies Gift Box by Laura Milligan

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.
