Good morning! Welcome to our first class today. We thought it would be fun to start out with Jen from CaffeinatedPapercuts – since her shop name has caffeine in it! Jen shares with us how to make a hot cocoa holder.
We all find ourselves needing a last-minute gift, stocking stuffer, or add-on to a present at the holidays, and today I have a great one for you – a hot cocoa holder!
How cute are these?? A pretty package holding a yummy treat. After all, who doesn’t like a nice, hot cup of cocoa during those cold months. You could easily pair it with a pretty mug or coffee cozy, maybe even coasters!
- Materials Used
-your favorite hot cocoa packet
-adhesive (tape runners work best)
-mini stapler (I used the Tim Holtz one)
-seasonal card stock
-stamps & colored pencils (you can easily use stickers or other embellishments as well)
- First Step
Your exact dimensions depend upon the size of your cocoa packet. I built this one so that there was 1/4″ border on the sides and made sure the pocket came up over halfway on the cocoa packet. This leaves room for the mini staples to form the pocket without puncturing the cocoa. Yes, it is a bit messy when that happens…
- Final Step
I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial today. Feel free to stop by my blog if you have any questions! CaffeinatedPapercuts
