Mix It Up Blog Hop



Here's my project for today's fun hop! This pocket tag cocoa holder can be used to hold hot cocoa mixes like I did here, or you can tuck just about any other item inside that will fit.
I combined this cute gingerbread file from Treasure Box Designs with the cookie jar file from Scraptastical Kreations.
I added lots of glitter to add some fun bling! A sheer pink bow was wrapped around the tag and a matching bow was added to finish it off!
Add the hot cocoa packs and a homemade wrapped cookie inside for a perfect teacher or neighbors gift.

Thanks for stopping by.

Karel - I am trying to take in all your lovely cards. What talent you have. I did try this once, and it was a total disaster as I have a problem imagining the final card.
Scrapbooking seems to go better for me -- easier ??
I love your choice of colors. Good job !!
