Hi friends! I'm popping in over the holiday weekend with a fun little hot cocoa holder I made. We had a fabulous Thanksgiving and are hoping for a (relatively) quiet (haha!) day with the boys today!
Since I saw the tutorial on SCS earlier this month, I've wanted to make one of these Twisted Cards. I followed the tutorial, stamping leaves and sponging the edges of the inside and outside of the holder, then adding a little Flourished Trim accented with liquid pearls to the front flap.
I made both flaps a pocket, so I could tuck a removable bookmark (secured on the back with a little washi tape) in the front flap and use the inner pocket for a packet of hot cocoa and a thank you note.
The bookmark is made from so saffron card stock and I cut the top shape with the scalloped topper die from the Good Work Flowers Die Set. I made a coordinating mat from early espresso to give a little heft to the project. The sentiment is from Good Work (just restocked and on SALE, hooray!) and stamped in early espresso, then I stamped around the edges with leaves from the set and sponged with so saffron ink. A bit of ribbon and twine, along with a rhinestone and my bookmark was ready!
For the inside of the holder, I cut a piece of patterned paper I thought would coordinate nicely to tuck over the hot cocoa packet and write a little note. The thank you circle is added with a stamp from the Sweet Treats set and then punched with circle dies. I clipped it all to the hot cocoa packet with a mini library clip and tucked it inside. So easy and fun... I can see myself making many more in the weeks to come!

This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
