Cocoa For Santa

See below to win!*


I made this gift bag to resemble a Santa coat just for fun! I've seen candy bar wrappers that look like this and loved it, so I gave it a shot in mug form. I used a free digi mug art and Barn Door Distress Ink, applied straight from pad to paper for depth and richness, added a buckle and belt and then made some whipped cream that I stuck straws in. Delicious!


I used a sizzix woodgrain folder to emboss the paper bag before attaching everything. I added the straws at the last minute and loved how it finished it off and made it more realistic looking. Mmmmm...hot chocolate and whipped cream. And now I want some hot cocoa.

I'm entering the Tsuruta Designs Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Hope you'll join me in a cuppa and in making a fun holiday drink craft. You could win prizes if you do!
