25 Days of {homemade} Christmas Gifts-Day 21 Cocoa Packet & Gift Card Holder

Today's gift is a super easy way to dress up a gift card!

For this project I used the following supplies;

packet of hot cocoa
scrapbook paper & adhesive
hole punch
paper trimmer

Start by measuring your cocoa packet and trim your paper to fit around the packet. Fold it around your packet and glue it together. Once your get that finished, take out the cocoa packet.

Decorate the front. I used some printed paper, snowflake punch, a coffee cup, stamp and colored pencils. Once it's finished, punch a hole in the top of your packet.

Put your ribbon through both holes and use your cocoa packet to push the ribbon down to the bottom and tie a knot.

If you want to make a pocket for a gift card, just cut out another piece of paper and only put adhesive around three of the edges. Insert your gift card! You are all done!!

Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a Michael's gift card! Happy holiday crafting!
