More Chocolate and Marshmallows

Hi friends! It's Julee Tilman popping in to share a little inspiration with you.  Today I've got a fun little treat giving project. I recently watched a live on YouTube where they were making altered coffee sleeve treat pouches. I remembered making these back in the day, so decided it was time to make some more.

My first stop was Starbucks, because any excuse to go get coffee, right? I kept my coffee sleeve and gathered a few more from my family, then spent an evening watching football tracing the coffee sleeves onto scraps of patterned paper from Christmas past and cutting them out. I added a little lace to the bottom with some clear tacky glue, and since the glue seeped through the lace a bit, I was able to press in some champagne glass glitter for a touch of gold.

I then pulled out the Poinsettia two step stamping set and picked out some reds and greens to stamp them out. I layered four of the leaves  behind the large poinsettia on pop dots, then accented with some yellow stickles.  The sentiment is from the Hot Cocoa & Marshmallows set and stamped onto a label from the  Label Shape Dies 1 set. I glued this to the top of my coffee sleeve, then got to work filling my cellophane bag.

I stuffed this one with a couple packets of Ghirardelli hot cocoa, a large peppermint chocolate marshmallow, a couple chocolate spoons, and my favorite little white chocolate peppermint Lindor truffles. I tied it up with a bit of ribbon, and then tucked it into the coffee sleeve. Super easy and the perfect little gift for a friend or neighbor

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fantastic day

- Julee
