Hot Chocolate Holder - Sweet Treat Gift Idea

Hello and Happy Holidays Doodlebug fans! I am up on the blog today with a fun little gift idea. These came together really quickly so they are perfect for those last minute gifts or if you need to make a whole bunch of gifts to give away- these are perfect. I made Hot Chocolate Holders from some cardstock and some fun elements from the Here Comes Santa Claus collection. Here is what they look like:
 Let me show you how to make these: You will need a 4 1/4 x 11 inch piece of cardstock and a scoring tool.
On the 11 inch side of your cardstock , score your paper at 4 3/4 and then at 10 inches.
Fold on all the scored lines to make the bag.

From here you can decorate the front of the bag. I chose a 4x4 inch square of  Trimming the Tree pattern paper and a 3 1/2 x 4 inch piece of  a few different shades of gingham- linen Petite Print papers. I cut them on a diagonal and made them into a little pocket. I then slipped some various die cuts from the Odds and Ends. I added sentiments from the Santa Celebration pattern paper cut into banners as well. I also added some Candy Canes and Holly Berries shaped sprinkles. I finished the top of the bag off with a white button and a double bow made of bakers twine.

To attach the hot chocolate packet to my bag, I simply ran a piece of double stick tape to the back of the top flap, and then taped the packet to the flap. Here's the inside:
Hopefully I have inspired you to whip up a batch of these fun holders. They are great for teachers, co-workers, and also kids can make these for their friends since they are so easy to do. Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Holidays!
