Hot Chocolate holder

When I am pregnant or breastfeeding I try to limit my intake of caffeine and prefer to drink “Hot Chocolate” instead of coffee.  Yes I know! I know! There is still caffeine in Hot Chocolate but I figure it is better for me than the caffeine in coffee.  Well my days of being pregnant or breastfeeding are definitely OVER and I am really enjoying being able to drink as much coffee and wine as I please…..but I still enjoy having a Hot Chocolate every now and again.

Recently I was having a Hot Chocolate and noticed the label on the sachet “Chocolatte”.  I thought about how great this would look with the “Love you a latte” stamp from Pun Fun……and so there was the inspiration for this little Hot Chocolate Sachet Holder.  

Now Just for Fun:  Can you tell how I created the circular ‘window’ in the riding hood red cardstock?  I have used Stampin’ Up! products exclusively- however Stampin’ Up! don’t have a circle punch that large.   If you know how I did it, please send me an E-mail at miriamthomas@westnet.com.au and you can go into a draw to win a Stampin Pad (colour of your choice).  If you don’t know how I did it and would like to know- please drop me a line at miriamthomas@westnet.com.au and I will share the little tip!
