Tuesday Tutorial: Easy Hot Cocoa Holder

Today's project is a simple hot choclate holder that houses the pre-made packets that you purchase at the grocery store!  It's so simple and fast and makes a wonderful little "thank you" or "thinking of you" gift, or even makes a fun attachment to a larger gift or gift card.

Here is what you'll need:
4.25 x 11" piece of Cardstock
Straight Edge
Craft Knife
Small Hole Punch
Brad or Grommet (for closure)
Stamps and Other Embellishments
Hot Chocolate Packet

First, take your cardstock and score it along the long side at 1" and 6-3/8".

Fold up the bottom 1" portion and secure it using a brad, being sure to keep it towards the bottom of the folded piece.  Now on the longest section, punch holes at the 1-3/4" and 2-3/4" marks (these measurements taken from the scored line at the top), staying fairly close to the edge of the cardstock.  These holes will keep your cardstock from tearing when you insert the cocoa packet.
Next, take your straight edge and use your craft knife to make two slits in between the holes you punched.
 Inset your cocoa packet...

And, embellish as desired...
