Hot Cocoa packet holder
I saw a cute cocoa packet holder made out of envelopes on Dawn Griffith's blog. She has a video tutorial on how she made her's here.
I must be using a different size of cocoa packet, because her envelope idea wasn't going to fit my cocoa packet very well, so I came up with a simple similar holder using cardstock.
How to make my version:
CS 9" x 5 1/2", scored along the 9" side at 5", and the sides each at 3/4"
Use a bone folder to make the folds crisp, and cut off the 5" sides (tabs), leaving the 4" side tabs intact. Fold the pocket up at the 5" mark and glue the side flaps to the back. Corner round the top corners.
Finished size: 5" x 4"
These would make a cute little stocking stuffer, door-prize, thank-you, teacher gift, craft sale item.... or fill with a packet of Chicken Noodle Soup for a Get Well Soon idea.
