MCS New Release Day 3 - Christmas Cocoa Treats

Good morning! Welcome to day 3 of sneak peeks for the Winter Release at My Craft Spot! Today we are sharing projects made with the newly releasing stamp set called Ornate Labels Christmas, which coordinates with Ornate Labels Metal Dies.

I decided to make a fun Christmas Hot Cocoa Treat gift! I cut my Ornate Label with Chalkboard paper, then stamped and heat embossed my frame, sentiment, and those fun stars with Zing embossing powder. I also smudged a bit of white pigment ink on them to weather them a bit.

Next, I punched a hole at the top and threaded through some Snow White Crinkle Ribbon, and then tied a bow with Maraschino Twinery Baker's Twine.

Added a candy cane, and tied it all around a thin plastic bag that I received from my wonderful DT friend Ally! It is filled with Trader Joes Peppermint Hot Cocoa - which by the way, is to die for! I'm not sure if it is out yet this year, but it seems to come around seasonally, and I always buy a few spares to save and use throughout the year. Not sure how this one survived so long, but I'm glad I still had it for this!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Make sure and head over to My Craft Spot next to see what the rest of the design team put together, and enter today's giveaway!
