Winter Treats

I wanted to take a moment to share some of my winter projects using My Pink Stamper's 'Winter Treats and Sayings' new set. Though I am nowhere near ready for the holidays, Christmas is definitely my favorite time of the year so starting to come up with ideas for little gifts is always fun!

My first project is a tag for a "snowman soup" goodie bag. Who doesn't love getting those?!

My 2nd project is a window, tree box
(I may actually like it better with M & M's)

And my fave is the cocoa sleeve.
These are so fun and easy to make!

Here's the inside...

Want to make one?! They're super simple! Start with a 9 3/4" x 8" sheet of CS. On the 8" side, score at 5" and fold CS to create a 3" flap on the inside. Turn your CS long ways, and score at 4 1/2" and 5 1/4" to create the creases in the middle to allow enought space for the cocoa packets. Adhere the insidee in the middle and the edge and insert your packet. I added a ribbon all the way around on the outside to help hold it closed.

Hope that all made sense :)


  1. They all made sense, and they are all darling!!! I especially love the cocoa sleeve---so clever!!!

  2. Like Missy I like the cocoa sleeve the best, but they are all so nice
