MCT 5 Days of Christmas, Day 3

Today's projects are delicious. Winter weather is here and it's definitely time to cozy up by the fire, or if you don't have that luxury (I do not, I'm afraid) snuggle with and blanket and and a good book, or hubby LOL, with a cup of hot cocoa. Or cider if you prefer. Either way, My Creative Time has the perfect products to embellish your goodie gifts.

Hot spiced cider is my winter morning beverage, cocoa for evenings, and coffee in between. I'm always freezing and these hot treats help to keep me warm!

This pocket has a window so you can see what you're getting. In case the apple on the front doesn't click. LOL

The other pockets are made using the scalloped edge envelope die. I added the cocoa mug from the Do The Cocoa Motion stamp set.....

....added liquid embroidery/puffy pain for the marshmallows and whipped cream -- it looks real enough to eat!

and a belly band to tuck in a candy cane for stirring!

For this one I used the adorable new mini-bow die to embellish the stir stick.

Love this little die!

Thank you for stopping by today. Hopefully you're getting lots of inspiration for any last minute hostess gifts or other gift giving ideas that pack a punch and are still easy on the wallet. More goodness tomorrow....see you then! ♥
