DCD #249 – Hot Cocoa, We Love You! YUM!

Yes, we do!  I almost never drink it, though, because of all the calories!  I remember my mother making delicious hot cocoa with real milk on the stove for us after we went ice skating or shoveled our huge driveway .  YUM is right!  and we had already worked off those calories!  As you have guessed, the challenge theme this week at Die Cuttin’ Divas is Hot Cocoa.

I took this challenge literally and made a little hot chocolate giftie for each of my team members at school using a retired file from Treasure Box Designs (from the same set used here.)

P1110888Both the patterned papers are retired from CTMH, and the mugs have been embossed using a folder that came with my eBosser.

P1110885I cut out two mugs and taped them together using Scor Tape, then used Scor Tape again to adhere the bears onto the Starbucks Hot Chocolate packet before putting them inside.

P1110883P1110880This file didn’t come with a base layer to build upon.  I hate that.  I wish I had copied all the pieces and assembled and welded them on my virtual mat to make a base because the backs of these bears just look horrible.  But the fronts look cute!  I popped the paws up using foam tape to kind of hang over the front of the mugs.

P1110884This Die Cuttin’ Divas challenge runs from January 19 – 25.  Our prize is ribbon from Little Scrap Pieces.  Good luck!
