Inspire Create Stamping Challenge 007. Hug in a Mug treat pouch!






It is time for another Inspire Create Challenge and this week we have a colour challenge!




I love this palette and it is so perfect for the time of the year.  I have been deliberating what to make with these tiny treat tubes from Stampin' Up!. I used them at Halloween to put lots of treats in and knew they would be perfect at Christmas too.

With the weather turning so much colder this last week there have been a fair few hot chocolates made in our house. Cream and a few tiny marshmallows are a hit with my boys. I realised the tiny marshmallows would fit beautifully and with the Hug In A Mug stamps, would be great to make a hot chocolate treat pouch. 




It is so simple to make. It is a piece of Real Red card stock cut at 4" x 10 3/4". Score at 3/4" and at 6".  I have used a couple of glue dots on the back of the sachet to hold it in place and some of the silver Year of Cheer washi tape at the top ( oh how I love these, any excuse to use them!) 
I stamped " You warm my heart" in Pear Pizzazz ink , little heart and some Hershey kisses in Black Memento ink and used my Stampin Write Markers to colour them in Real Red and Crumb cake. I cut it out using my 1 3/4" circle punch and layered it onto a 2" circle, added a little clear heart gem and secured it to the sachet with a glue dot.



On a piece of Whisper White I have stamped the mug Black Memento and coloured it using the dark and light Crumb Cake Blends markers. The alcohol inks mean I can add a little shading. I have added whipped cream and marshmallows and a little candy cane too. I have added the star in the centre of the mug in Tranquil Tide which gives it a nice pop of colour.  "Hot chocolate is a hug in a mug" I have stamped in Pear Pizzazz. Can you see the Wink of Stella I have used to add a little sparkle to the mug?


The final touch is the tiny marshmallows popped in to the treat tube. I have added a couple of small holes with my punch to the pouch at the top, threaded through some Real Red ribbon and secured the tube with a bow.

I hope you like it, I think put a luxury hot chocolate inside and it would be a perfect little treat to give out.  Maybe an inexpensive teacher gift or for your children's school friends at the end of term ( note - check dietary requirements though ) or would be lovely to dress up a Christmas present.
