I was gifted this really cute hot chocolate kit last year from a friend. Hot chocolate is one of my favorite things to drink in the winter so I instantly fell in love with this idea and replicated it this holiday season. A Hot Chocolate Card Kit is the perfect little gift to hand out to your neighbors, co-workers, or friends.
- scrapbook paper (1 piece in each size: 8.5″ x 5.5″, 3.75″ x 5.25″ and 3.75″ x 1.75″)
- hole punch
- stamps and/or stickers and/or embellishments
- hot chocolate packet
- candy cane
Step 1: Score your largest piece of paper (8.5″ x 5.5″) at the 4″ mark and the 8″ mark (you can use a scoring tool or simply measure with a ruler and fold)
Step 2: Attach your medium sized piece of paper (3.75″ x 5.25″) onto the front of the card.
Step 3: Using stamps, stickers, or embellishments decorate your smallest piece of paper (3.75″ x 1.75″) and attach to the front of the card.
Step 4: Punch a hole at the top of the card.
Step 5: Wrap your ribbon around the bottom of your hot chocolate packet leaving a couple of inches at the top to tie a knot (you’ll need roughly 12″-14″ of ribbon).
Step 6: Thread your ribbon through each hole.
Step 7: Adhere the .5″ scored piece inside of the card closing the hot chocolate packet inside.
Step 8: Tie a knot at the top of the card.
Step 9: Adhere the candy cane to the front of the card.
Voila! A quick and easy gift in a card. Using the ribbon to pull out the hot chocolate packet like a little surprise is fun for all ages. Write a little note on the back and gift someone a warm cozy evening of hot chocolate.
