My drink of choice this time of year is hot cocoa — and in particular, Ghirardelli Peppermint Hot Cocoa 🙂  (CLICK on the photos for up close views)


I made a simple pocket out of patterned paper …


… wrapped a red satin ribbon around the cocoa packet and threaded it through a topper I made for the patterned paper pocket!


I tied on a die cut tag in a present shape and stamped the ‘to’ and ‘from’.


The coordinating card was inspired by Jill’s tag that she created for the 25 Days of Christmas with Paper Sweeties!


I used the window die cut for the background, embossed it with the cutest trees and stars, added a scalloped circle border die cut for the ‘shelf’ and had fun added ‘whipped cream’, a candy cane and gingerbread cookie to this delicious beverage!


We made these this month at all of my card classes and the girls really enjoyed walking away with a gift to go that was quick, easy and inexpensive!


I whipped up a couple different ones with different patterned paper pockets that I can give to family and friends during the holiday season!


Use these goodies from Paper Sweeties to recreate these sweet gift sets:

And I thought today was the perfect day to share as it is National Hot Cocoa Day – how fun!
