So my Paper Pumpkin class for the October kit is over and I can continue to share what we did as our alternatives - here is the fourth and final project we did for this kit -
It is a Cocoa holder - though I have done these for tea, candy bars, pkgs of microwave popcorn etc.
So for this card start with another of the snowy tree bases from the kit. Using the tear and tape, seal the open side of the card together, leave the bottom open.
Stamp your sentiment on Basic White and layer on Real Red and then onto the front of the base. We punched out a string of the pine trees with the Evergreen Border punch - using Evening Evergreen cardstock; and popped that up on some dimensionals.
Next you want to punch a hole through both layers of the base, centered about 1/2" below the top. Then thread 24" of Real Red Satin ribbon through these holes pulling so ends are even. Push the package of cocoa mix down between the two layers of card, pushing the ribbon down evenly with it. Once the package of cocoa mix is all the way inside - tie a bow at the top. To reveal the package again - just pull up on the ribbon.
Such a fun little gift or stocking stuffer. You do not need a cardbase to make this - you can just attach decorated layer of cardstock together and complete as above.
