Peppermint Hot Cocoa Folder

When it comes to small gift giving, my all time favorite is this hot chocolate folder that I first saw on Sonja's Scene blog last Christmas. The template is bit confusing, lots of cuts and folds, but so worth it IMO. And of course, the little Forever Friends bear holding his mug of chocolate is perfect for this project. This is my favorite FF stamp!
I decorated the inside as well outside with patterned papers, and added a ribbon loop to the spine of the folder so I could slip some candy canes in it.
I had a large canister of Ghirardelli peppermint hot cocoa mix, so I scooped up one generous portion into individual clear bags and sealed them up really well. The little cocoa poem was printed and cut out with my Spellbinders die.
It's definitely a cute gift!
Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by!
