Christmas and Cocoa with Heather Meeson

Happy Friday friends!  Not only are there only 10 days left until Christmas, but today is the last day our December guest Heather Meeson is with us.  This month, and year, are flying by!  Heather has a great idea for some quick and easy gift giving today, take a look:

For my last guest designer post, I’ve got a last-minute idea for gifting hot-cocoa.

Mine is sized to work with a cocoa packet that’s tall and skinny, but you can easily adapt it to work with any size you have.

To create this pocket all you need to do is a little scoring:

· Trim cardstock to 8” (wide) x 8 1/2” (tall)

· Create the “spine” by scoring at 3 3/4” and 4 1/4”

· Rotate cardstock and score at 6 1/8” and 6 5/8” (this creates the inside pocket)

· Trim excess cardstock under the left panel (front cover) and spine, this leaves only the pocket on the right side

This image shows what your scored paper will look like:

Once the pocket card was created, I added a candy cane to the outside spine with a glue dot and wrapped twine around to hold it closed.

The final step was to add the layer with the yeti scene; popping it up with foam adhesive to accommodate the twine underneath. The Yeti is from the Get Yeti set and the snowdrifts were created using the Stitched Slopes dies. My favorite bit is the candy cane (from the Beary Merry set) in the yeti’s hand (which I added by making a tiny cut with an xacto knife). The sentiment is also from Beary Merry.
