Christmas Cocoa

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was busy with no time to craft. At least not paper craft. But today I finally finished the tags for the cocoa we are giving the teachers at Head Start. I was going to make the tags all different but because time was getting short I decided to make them all the same.

The image is from Bugaboo and I fussy cut the cups out. The original image is with the steam and hearts so I drew them myself and then layered the hearts (4 each) to give the tag some texture. The snowflakes were also added for embellishments. The sentiment is from a Flourishes stamp set (no longer in business). I embossed the sentiment on vellum. And tied the tag with Lawn Fawn twine. The heart die and sentiment die are from MFT Blueprints 32. The tag is from MFT Blueprints 13. I added some ribbon to the jar lid. The snowflakes are from MFT Dienamics Layered Snowflakes.

This is a close up of the top of the jar. I wanted to share this because my daughter beaded these ornaments for the teachers and I think she did a great job. Something a little extra for a Merry Christmas. I am entering these challenges:

Hope your week is off to a great start. My oldest son and his fiance arrive tomorrow and our Christmas festivities begin so I won;t be around much for the next week and a half. I have a few projects I need to get done but they might have to be posted later. We'll see how my time goes. Our first trip to the Indianapolis airport will be 9:00 am tomorrow morning. My youngest son and his wife arrive on Wednesday. It will be a busy week. Also have them all for dinner on Tuesday night. Hope your holidays are lovely and filled with job, family and friends. (just in case I don;t get back later this week). Take care!

Thanks for linking this to HIMCR's #331 3rd Saturday challenge/surprise week/use a digital image! It's great to see crafters also do other types of paper crafting like tags, gift bags or boxes, tree decorations, etc. These are vibrant and festive! From a DT member, Becca
