Cuppa Hot Chocolate

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week we are featuring Christmas gifts or favors!  Lots of ideas for gifts to give out to teachers, friends and anyone else that needs to be appreciated at this time of year.

I pulled out my envelope board and created a couple of hot chocolate gifts that are easy to make and would be loved by anyone.

Envelope Board Hot Chocolate Gifts

Aren’t these great!!  Best part, they are very easy to make so you can have lots to hand out!

packet one

To make these all you need is some designer paper and an envelope punch board.  Cut the paper 6 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ and follow the directions for the 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ envelope on the punch board.  So your first score mark is at 3″ then just rotate the paper and line up with the score lines.  Once your scoring is done.  Fold up 3 flaps and cut off the last one which will be one of the shorter sides.

packet 2

Add a belly band and embellish!  I used the GORGEOUS red foil paper and added a fun falala to the band.  The contrast of the Mossy Meadow band and the red foil is simply beautiful!  I listed the supplies below so you give these fun little hot chocolate packets a try for yourself!


PAPER:  Home for Christmas DSP, Mossy Meadow, Red Foil

DIE CUTS/EMBOSSING FOLDERS: Gently Falling EF, Christmas Greetings Thinlits

ACCESSORIES:  Envelope Punch Board, Tear Tape, Fine Tip Glue Pen
