Hot Cocoa Gift

Hi everyone! Here's a quick and easy gift. I loooove hot chocolate and especially WITH marshmallows...gotta have it! The mug is filled with a clear bag of mini marshmallows and two packets of hot cocoa mix.

The Snowman Soup sentiment is from the new Tag Treats set. It was stamped in black ink and then cut out with a Nestabilities scallop oval die.

The white tag was run through the cuttlebug with the snowflakes embossing folder. It was layered with the MME Be Merry DP from the new Christmas Key Ingredients pack and the die cut oval sentiment. I punched a snowflake out of the same Be Merry DP with my Martha Stewart snowflake punch, popped it up on foam tape over the sentiment, and added a red rhinestone to the center.

RECIPE ~
Stamps: Tag Treats (Stamp a Sweet Impression Collection)
Paper: White Precut Tag, My Mind's Eye Be Merry DP, PTI Select White

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Scallop Oval Nestabilities, Red Rhinestone, Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch, Gold Cord, Red Organdy Ribbon, Clear Bag, Hot Cocoa Packets and Marshmallows, Foam Tape
Technique: Dry Embossing


**ETA**
Sarah asked where I found the snowflake mugs. Believe it or not, at my local grocery store (LOL!)...Redner's Warehouse Markets.


Have an awesome week!
