December Challenge: Brr! It's Cold!

Let's start December with a new challenge over at the My Pumpkin Challenge! The last Paper Pumpkin kit was so adorable. I can't wait to see what everyone is making with it.

The Challenge this month is Brr! It's cold. I live in Colorado and it is usually really cold and snowy this time of year. Yesterday the temperature was 60 degrees. My son wore shorts to school. It does not feel like December yet! It is weird to see Christmas lights hanging with no snow. I don't think snow is even in the forecast in Denver. But, in the spirit of winter here is my sample this week! p.s. I am not complaining about the warmth, just noting that it is odd. ;)

I used one of the cute snowflake cards to make this hot cocoa treat. I cut one flap off the card (the end with half a snowflake). Then I used sticky tape to tape the sides of the remaining snowflake piece, to make a pocket for the hot cocoa packet. I stamped some snowflakes along the bottom and embellished the centers with rhinestones. Wrapped some of the pretty baker's twine (from the kit) around the packet and attached the candy cane too. I used a glue dot to adhere the silver snowflake. Stamped Merry Christmas at the top and added two more rhinestones. This project was fast and easy. This would make a perfect gift for a teacher or coworker.

I hope you will share your creations over at the My Pumpkin Challenge. Be sure to stop by for more inspiration!

Thanks for visiting!


  1. What a cute idea! I think I might be casing this one for the remaining pieces in my November kit! Thanks, Boni.
