Hot Chocolate Anyone

Adding the Sweet Treat Cups to the center of your Fancy Favor Box and you have another holiday gift, great for teachers, secret santa's, friends, and more.

To start I took a piece of 12 x 6 Real Red Cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Fancy Favor Bigz Die to get the box.  Before I put it together I stamped snowflakes all over it in random order.  I then took my 1 3/4" circle punch and punched a hole in the center of the front of the box and placed my Sweet Treat Cup filled with mini marshmallows.  I layered a piece of 3 x 3 Real Red cardstock behind the Treat Cup to keep it in place.  I used Sticky Strip to put the box together, added the handle  which was a left over piece of cardstock from when I cut out the box.  I added a tag, put in the hot chocolate and some Hershey Kisses tied in a small cello bag.  Thanks to fellow SU demonstrator Kimberly for this great idea.
