A Sweet Elf Gift.....Just Add Warm Milk

Hi everyone!!
I have a great gift idea to share~ 1 of 8 actually completed for my son to hand out to his teachers for Christmas~Of course I ran out of the paper I wanted to use to complete the rest of them :(
he is in middle school and even though treats for his friends are no long acceptable..LOL... he still wants to take something in for his teachers...alittle something to wish them a Merry Christmas.
Using a fun file from SVG Cutting Files and the sentiment stamps from Jaded Blossom I made this
"sweet" hot cocoa gift set.
Inside the Elf fry box is a package of Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix, 2 Candy Canes and a small bag of Marshmallows. Yummmmmm!!!
I embellished the bag with an adorable wooden spoon from Trendy Twine, stamped using a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Hot Cocoa stamp set and tied onto the bag with some gorgeous White Tinsel Ribbon, Candy Cane Trendy Twine and some small jingle bells.
So cute, super easy to put together and sure makes for a fun gift idea.

Supplies Used:
Bazzill Iris Eyes Cardstock, white, black cream (stash)
Jaded Blossom~Hot Cocoa
SVG Cutting Files~Elf Fry Box
Jaded Blossom~ Fancy Topper Die (layer die)
Trendy Twine~Mini Wooden Spoons
Trendy Twine~Candy Cane
Sparkly Sweet Craft Notions~ May Arts Sheer White Tinsel Ribbon
jingle bells, stickles, treat bag
Hot cocoa supplies :)

So there is my project for today. I hope you enjoyed this sweet treat!
