I had you at “chocolate” didn’t I?
I have 4 nephews and 1 niece (so far). My littlest nephew is only 3, so I gave him some fun 3 yr old things, but these are some gifts I gave to my neice and oldest nephews. Basically, it’s just super easy. You cover the hot chocolate can with some cute paper. Let me give you an important tip. People might want to actually drink this gift so some instructions written down would be super helpful. (Am I right Benjamin?) 😉 He had quite a time taking the paper off of the can to figure out the appropriate scoop vs. water/milk method. I ATG’d that thing half to death. If you don’t want to be in great crafter pain as you watch your gift get disassembled, write down some instructions. Just sayin’.
Using the Cricut Imagine More Cards and my Cricut Imagine I cut out those gift card holders. I used both the Imagine More Cards cartridge and the Cricut Imagine Mr. Frosty Cartridge to make different patterns for each part of the card holders.
I used the Joy’s Life Father & Son and Mother & Daughter stamps both to create the sentiments on each card. You can see my stamps on the right hand side of this page or by clicking HERE. One of the things I like best about these stamp sets is that they are completely interchangeable. I knew that would come in handy! 😉

I did use one of my All Arounds Sentiments stamps in the card on the right.
Outside of Gift Cards
The paper of the card on the left is supposed to look that way. 😉 All stamps are from my Mother & Daughter and Father & Son sets. 😀

The paper wrapping the cans is from Stampin’ Up. I love their paper!
Card Holders all Tied Up and Ready for Giving
I used a whole roll of twine during Christmas! 😉 This week I placed an order for twine from The Twinery. I haven’t gotten it yet, but you might want to check them out. 😉 I get a lot of questions asking if the Cricut Imagine is worth it and if I like it. I have to say that it is quite pricey, but I really do like it. I think it will get even better as new functions are added to it. Remember, it’s just in it’s starting out phase. 😉
