Hot Chocolate Holder Featuring Mini Jam Jars Facebook Live 9.8.2021

So glad to see you today!  Last week I blogged a hot chocolate holder using the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper. It featured the use of the Mini Jam Jars found in the annual catalog.  There was a request for a video.  Thanks for that.  It's nice to know what you want!  For the video I used different products.  I used the Nature's Meadow Designer Series Paper.  I think it turned how very well!  I've also used the Nature's Harvest bundle.

The fall is also a time of gift giving and showing others how thankful you are for them.  It may not seem like it right now but cooler weather will be on the way.  Hot chocolate is always a great idea!

If you want the measurements for this project please go here to my earlier blog post.  It's all there!  I also have links for the Hot Chocolate I ordered and for the wooden spoon I used.  These links are also on my YouTube video!

Here's the video!

 

Here's a few more pictures of my project!

Peaceful Cabin Card

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #681.  Today we have a sketch for you!

CCMC681

I have made a card using the Peaceful Cabin bundle and the Penguins Playmates Designer Series Paper available free during Sale-a-Bration.  That offers end at the end of September.  Here is my card.

CCMC #681 Peaceful Cabin Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is Misty Moonlight measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The center moonlight diagonal stripe paper measures 3 x 4 1/4.

The cabin was stamped in Smoky Slate ink on a piece of Basic White that was about 2 3/4 x 4.  Trim off the top of the cabin with the Cabin dies. 

Add along the bottom of the center designer paper.  Cut the white so that you get the extensions needed for the sketch. 

The moonlight diagonal strips added to the top and middle of the paper are 1 inch wide and 3 1/3 inched long.

CCMC #681 Peaceful Cabin Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Cut out two sets of the trees using the Just Jade designer paper and the Cabin dies.  I trimmed these up wherever I felt it was needed.  So I can't really say what happened next.  I added the trees trying to pay attention to how they would look behind each other.  Some were added just with a few glue dots and some have cut up dimensionals where I thought I could hide them.

Dimensionals were added behind the house.

The saying from Peaceful Cabin was stamped two times on white scrap and fussy cut.  Glue to the card front.

Add some of the Subtle Shimmer Sequins.  I love those so much!

So I didn't get an inside made for this one.  I thank you for joining me.  I appreciate your loyalty!

3D Free Project Thursday Mini Jam Jar Hot Chocolate Gift

Welcome to my first 3D Free Project Thursday.  I'm so excited to be a part of this team.  

3D Thursday Free Project Thursday

For my project using the Mini Jam Jars, I made a cute treat perfect for holiday gift giving.

3D Thursday Hot Chocolate Box by Jo Anne Hewins

To make my holder I needed a couple things from the outside.  Let's get that done first.  For the Hot Chocolate, I ordered from Amazon Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix, 0.85-Ounce Packets (Pack of 10).  For the spoons, also from Amazon, Perfect Stix - Green Spoon 110-100 Green Spoon 110 Birchwood Compostable Cutlery Taster Spoon with Concave, 4-1/2" Length (Pack of 100).  The wooden spoons came in a pack of 100.  The are 4 1/4 inches tall.  They cost $11.09.

For the chocolate holder the Early Espresso card stock measures 5 7/8 x 5 7/8.  Score at 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 3 7/8, 4 1/8.  I darkened the lines so you can see them.  Add a piece of Tear and Tape to the back and close. 3D Thursday Chocolate Holder Tear and Tape by Jo Anne Hewins

You'll need 2 pieces of designer paper measuring 2 1/4 x 5 3/4.  I used the Painted Christmas DSP.  Add to each side.  You can lean the rectangle to one side to get a flat surface.

3D Thursday Chocolate Box Words HOT and CHOCOLATE by Jo Anne Hewins

Use the Playful Alphabet dies and the Love You More Than dies to cut the words.  I used Adhesive Sheets on the back of the espresso paper so my words turned into stickers.

I folded the chocolate packet to fit into the holder.

Use the Christmas Season bundle to add some holly to decorate.  I used Evening Evergreen and Real Red pads.

Now we'll tackle the bottom box.

The measurements are 3 7/8 x 10.  Score at 2 3/8, 4 3/4, 7 1/8, and 9 1/2.  Turn the card stock and score at 1 1/2.  For this box the bottom is the larger pieces.  Trim up to the score line and trim away the little side piece.

Add designer paper measuring 1 3/8 x 2 1/4.  You'll need 4.

Add a piece of Tear and Tape at the end.  On the back add more Tear and Tape.

Adhere box.  Adhere the side first.  Flip up the panel with no tape first for the bottom.

Use more Tear and Tape to attach the back of the chocolate holder inside the back of the box.  It should fit perfectly.

3D Thursday Chocolate Jam Jar by Jo Anne Hewins

I added a few ingredients that make make the hot chocolate just a little better to the box, mini marshmallows, chocolate morsels, and some crushed peppermint.  My peppermint did not crush very well.  I think it's just too humid here in NC.  Later I thought that I should have put them in the freezor first.

For the lid I used the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper from Sale-a-Bration.  I used the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles dies.  Center the paper and press down around the lid to get the shape.  Now add Tear and Tape to the side of the lid.  Center the paper again and press down. 

Use the Christmas Season bundle to decorate.  I added Crumb Cake and Early Espresso pads.  Add the jar to the box.

For the spoon, I ended up slanting it across the back.  Use a 18 inch length of the Metallic Mesh Ribbon.  Pull one end of the mesh over the spoon and then around to the back.  Do the same with the other end.  Bring the ribbon around the spoon and tie into a bow.
