Gaby Abby Challenges with SEI Week 8~~~ Anything Christmas!

Hello my dear followers and viewers! It's time for another Gaby Abby Challenge!! and this time it's ANYTHING CHRISTMAS!! I can't believe that it's this time of the year again!! 

Today, it's time for another fabulous SEI collection and "Kris Kringle" is the name! and it's a very sophisticated Christmas themed collection. Yes, I used the correct term... this collection (like Moonrise) is very elegant and beautiful!! You can check out each single design HERE.

I decided to create some hot cocoa holders. I have seen this idea out there and decided to give it a try!

Once again, I wanted to cater to those gals with no cutting machines. 
For these three holders only one sheet of cardstock and one sheet of the Kris Kringle collection were used.
I added some ribbon and used my white pen for some fun doodling! 
To make the holder close, I used some velcro.

Material used:
Bazzil Cardstock
Kris Kringle Collection (boxing day sheet)
Kris Kringle Gleaming Snow die-cut accents
Uniball white pen
Twine and ribbon from Michaels


Cardstock 4x12
Pattern paper 3.75x 11.75

Use your cocoa packet to measure your scoring lines.

Now, onto the fun part!! The CANDY!!
