Valentine's Day Gift Bag for Cocoa

I created this little bag to enter into a couple of challenges. At Fantabulous Cricut the challenge is named "Warming Up with Hot Cocoa", and you are to use a cup or chocolate or  the color brown on your project. I combined the cocoa idea with a Valentine's Day theme, since it is still cocoa weather in February. Four packets of instant cocoa fit just right.
I also entered it in the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog challenge #39. The challenge is "Sparkle and Ribbon" - create a card, layout, multi media piece, tag, ATC, hair bow, you name it, and use ribbon/lace or trim somewhere on your project.
The polka dot paper is Coordinations Whitewash paper embossed with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, and used the back, or dark,  side of the paper for the matching shadow cuts. Cricut cartridges used were Wrap It Up, Winter Frolic, New Arrival and Gypsy Wanderings.


  1. How sweet this is-love the hearts on the ribbon ends. Such a cute idea.
    So glad you could join us at
