To help keep Santa and Rudolph warm while they are out delivering gifts in the sleigh, I slipped a packet of hot chocolate behind a belly band on the inside of the card. To do this, I simply cut a strip of designer paper, matted it on black cardstock and then just glued the ends on either side of the top half of the card. The cocoa packet fits perfectly!
Then I made a pocket for the bottom half of the card. I created some cute tags and then used ivory burlap string to tie on Christmas charms. The mini envelope is made with one of Tammy Tutterow's dies. It has this cool little window in it that is just the right size to hold an itty bitty chocolate. These goodies all fit neatly into the pocket on the bottom half of the card. Of course, you could tuck a small gift card in there as well.
This would be such a cute little Secret Santa gift! Oh, and I did a "quality control" test on the hot chocolate to make sure it's up to Santa's standards. It passed with flying colors!
I hope you're finding time during this busy season to enjoy a little creative time for yourself. It's great therapy!
Thanks for stopping by!
