This sweet treat is sure to please both young and old. It’s so simple to make. Little hands can do it. It would make a nice classroom project. Here’s the deets:
Trim approx. 2 inches off the open end of a standard sized lunch bag. I’ve used a white bag here but you can use any color to coordinate with any theme or occasion (what fun!). Fold bag in half. I randomly stamped the Serene Snowflakes (love this set) in Soft Suede ink. I, also, sponged on some ink randomly as well. The inside greeting is from Christmas Greetings (it’s seen its share of ink this season). Insert single packet of instant hot cocoa mix into back, open end of bag. Tie a 15” length of ribbon around bag/card. I’ve used the solid side of the Soft Suede Polka Dot ribbon. Layer a panel onto the front of the bag. The snowflake is a die cut from the Snowflakes Set #2, a brad and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (another favorite).
I did a simplified version of this to hand out at our PTA board meeting today. I made 14 of them in just under 40 minutes. When I say ‘simplified’, I simply omitted the front panel and inside greeting layer and stamped a sentiment directly onto the paper bag…no layering involved that way. The ladies just loved them! Who wouldn’t?
I can’t take credit for this project. I found it on the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator’s website. Stampin’ Up! gives us all kinds of project and card ideas. It’s just one of the perks of signing a demonstrator’s agreement. If you’d like to do what I do, call me or check out more info. on my website, Start Your Own Business.
I hope you’ll give one a try. If you have any questions on how to make one of these, just leave me a comment or drop me an email. I’m always happy to share.
As always, thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ve been inspired.
