Hello! I am back for day 2 of the My Favorite Things Release Countdown! I can't believe it is whizzing by so fast! Only 2 more days until all of the fabulous new stamps and dies will be available!
Today I have some really fun projects I made with the Hot Cocoa Cups Die-namics and Hug In a Mug stamp set!
This was just too much fun to make! I have been primarily a card maker and haven't done much with treat bags and boxes, but lately I have really been wanting to try some. I found this cute box on Youtube HERE. I already had the box cut out before I had totally decided to use it for this project, so I used some older textured card stock for it. The little panel on the front is from the Calm & Cozy Chevron paper pack, cut out with the Zig Zag stitched Rectangle. The white circle is cut from the Double stitched circle STAX and the banner from Blueprints 2. For the mug, I used some Distress inks, sponging them on and then sprinkling with water to get the white spots. I then speckled them with some of the same color ink. I assembled the mug and added it to the white circle with foam tape.
The snowflake is from the Let it Snowflake Die-namics. I added a little twine bow and a button with glue dots. The sentiment is from the Gift Tag Greetings set. I then sent hubby to the grocery store to get me some hot chocolate and candy canes! He's a good guy! :)
Now this little bag only holds cocoa for one, and I created it myself. I just kind of made it up as I went along. I used the Blueprints 26 die to cut the pocket out. I cut two of these and then cut the top part off of one for the little pocket. I glued them together with score tape. I trimmed the edge with a scalloped border cut from patterned paper. I again used the double stitched circle die to cut out the white circle and did the mug the same as the box above, with distress inks. The sentiment is from the Hug in a Mug stamp set stamped in black licorice ink. The snowflake is from the Let it Snowflake die-namics and again I tied a little bow of red and white twine.
I just love the way these turned out and am looking forward to making several to share over the winter holidays!
