Tags and Trimmings for National Cocoa Day

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  Today, I’m sharing a cute box that ticks off another item on my need to create list.  It’s a fun alternative use and perfectly ties in Tags and Trimmings for National Cocoa Day.  Gift card, hot cocoa, jewelry, some chocolate — they’ll all fit in here!

I used the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits to cut the two sides of the mug.

Then, I cut another piece of Bermuda Bay with the “C” from the Large Letters Framelits.

The “C” makes a perfect handle for my mug!

Before assembling the two halves, I stamped a random pattern of snowflakes in Bermuda Bay ink.

Then, I cut a Gold Glimmer Paper snowflake.

Over that, I used the stocking cuff around the middle of the mug.

I embossed the sentiment from Tags and Trimmings and added it to the mug with Dimensionals.

At the top of the mug, I added some Vellum steam.

Of course a cup of hot cocoa needs marshmallows!

So after cutting those with Trim Your Stocking Thinlits,

I brushed on some shimmer with Wink of Stella.


Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Tags and Trimmings for National Cocoa Day mug!
