Hot Cuppa Cocoa

Today I’m sharing a Snowman Soup gift holder that I made for this week’s Totally Stampalicious Challenge – Hot Cuppa

I am not a hot beverage kind of girl.  I start my day with a nice cold Diet Pepsi over ice.  I love my Diet Pepsi!  I NEVER drink coffee, only drink hot tea when I’m sick, and really the only hot beverage that I enjoy is Hot Cocoa.  So today I decided to make a snowman soup for the Hot Cuppa challenge.  I used the Treehouse Stamps digital set Christmas Tags for the Snowman Soup tag.  


Paper:  Close to Cocoa , Ruby Red, Whisper White
Stamps:  Christmas Tags (Treehouse Stamps)
Ink:  Basic Black, Real Red
Accessories:  Houndstooth embossing folder, Fisker’s embossing plate, stickles, twine, Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa packet - GLUTEN FREE :), candy cane, marshmallows.

Measurements:  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Close to Cocoa paper.  Score at 2", 2 1/4", 6", 6 1/4"
Ruby red paper is 3 1/4 " x 5 1/4"
Thanks for checking out my Hot Cuppa Cocoa!

What a fun hot chocolate pocket. Love the texture, makes it look like straw. The fun tag tied on is great and I like the way you make the tag to pull it out of the pocket. ;)

LOVE this Julie! That snowman is so cute and love the houndstooth CB'ing. Love how you tied the image on with the string. Funny how I am a hot drink girl - and if I don't start my day with a BIG mug of tea, I don't feel right. I even drink tea on a Summer's day (I must be a little nutty!)!!

Oh, this is SO cute, Julie! I love your beautiful marshmallow and hot cocoa packette. It's time for me to really think about little gifts and this is very inspirational!

Julie, this is a great little gift.
I'm with you..I start my day with a Diet Dr. Pepper (still in the bottle). I do love hot cocoa, though. It warms me when I get so cold, which is most of the winter. LOL This is a super project.
