Cocoa Packet Holder

These cute cocoa packet holders were a big hit at my class last week and they are so easy to make!

Colors: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla.  Stamps: Scentsational Season and Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Big Shot: Holiday Collection Framelits, Striped Textured Impression Embossing Folder.  Punches: 2-1/2" Circle Scallop Border and Word Window.  Accessories: Be of Good Cheer, Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon.
The inspiration for these came from an idea that I saw using the Fancy Favor die.  But I found the cocoa packets were too wide.  So I came up with my own pattern for the base:
I cut a piece of card stock 8-1/2" by 4".  I scored it the long way at 2" and 6" and then turned it and scored it at 1/2".  I cut the little gray squares away and then assembled the pocket using sticky strip.  Then I ran it through the Big Shot with the Striped Embossing Folder and decorated it with a belly band and the Scentsational Season Bundle.

For the pullout piece, I cut a piece of 11 by 3-3/4" and scored it in half at 5-1/2". I stamped it with the snowflake stamps and then wrapped it around the cocoa packet.  Finally, I punched a hole through both pieces and add the ribbon to the top.

Thanksgiving really is one of my favorite holidays of the year and I am looking forward to spending it with my parents and other family members this year for the first time in a few years.  One of the things I am most thankful for right now is my Stampin' Up! Business.  We've had a few ups and downs in my family the past couple of months and my little business is one of the things that has kept me going. Thanks for your support and for your friendship!  I hope you and yours enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving together.
