In my weekly Facebook Live yesterday, I shared two cute and very simple ways to package hot cocoa, and a gift card. First was a Hot Cocoa packet, complete with a candy cane and a bit of chocolate.
This project’s base is a 6″ x 12″ piece of Designer Series Paper – folded up about 5″, leaving a bit of the inside DSP showing. I used Tear and Tape to adhere the sides, and created a tag with the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and coordinating Pine punch.
I used a tag die (love these!) and added a bit of a sneak peek with the Real Red Ruffled Ribbon coming in our new Mini that begins on August 3.

My second project uses one of our In Color 2021-2023 Ombre’ Gift bags. Simply fold up the bag -this creates 2 pockets.
I wrapped the bag with the Evening Evergreen Chevron Ribbon and again used a tag die as a the focal point of my bag.
My stamped words are from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set. I used the Pine punch with the Tidings of Christmas 6 x 6 DSP to create the sweet tree.
The front pocket of the card holds a little card from your personal message. This consists of a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock measuring 4 1/4″ x 3 1/2″, a panel of Basic White measuring 4″ x 3 1/4″. I added a 1″ x 4″ piece of DSP, a cherry cobbler sprig cropped from the Christmas Trimmings dies, and a bow (Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack).
My Christmas in July was a super fun day of stamping and crafting! This class consisted of “giftables” – projects you can gift to friends and family (or keep for yourself!) for the upcoming holidays, as well as four cards. My Christmas in July event featured the Tidings & Trimmings Bundle from our 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I offered the class both in person and “to go”. I’ve had some requests for a PDF-only option – and am happy to offer it starting today!
