Hot Chocolate Pockets

Today I'm sharing two different pockets I created for gifting hot chocolate packets.
The first pocket is made like a card with a diagonal cut pocket on the inside (see Cropstop blog linked below) and big 3D snowflake adorning the outside.
I die cut several snowflakes and glued them together (3 red, 2 green, 2 white). I popped them up using mounting tape and added a red gemstone to the center.
Supplies and Tools:
Knitted Embossing Folder (Couture Creations), Wide Christmas Ribbon, Create a Flake dies (Spellbinders, Burlap String, Pearls, Holiday Greens Thinlits (Tim Holtz)
The second pocket is embellished with liquid pearls, ribbon, and a fun little snowflake tag!
I think these would be fun for gifting to your card making group, Bible study class, co-workers, or just a friend in need of a pick-me up! For all the details on how I put these together: Visit today's post on the Cropstop blog.
Supplies and Tools:
Super Powder Puff Embossing Folder (Couture Creations), White Opal Liquid Pearls, Sea-grass Organdy Swirls Ribbon, Scallop Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Create a Flake dies (Spellbinders), Winter Wonders (All-Night Media), Broken China Distress Oxide, Blue Burlap String

Esther, your tag pockets are beautiful! The striped ribbon on the first one is gorgeous with the 3-D snowflake. Love the embossing on all of them. You have chosen several of my favorite CC folders! Thank you so much for always leaving such lovely comments on my projects. Have a Merry Christmas and I'll see you in the New Year.
