Hot Cocoa Gift Jar and Card Die Cut Set

Happy Sunday crafty friends! Today I am showcasing an easy, cute and sweet gift and card set over on the Scrapping Cottage blog for CottageCutz.com

Here is a look at my project.

I decided to use some sticker paper for my jar. It is a matte finish sticker paper. I ran it through my Gemini with my die and it cut the paper like butter!

I filled my jar with some hot cocoa mix, a layer of red sugar, some chocolate and white chocolate chips. I then added another layer of the hot cocoa mix and then some more red sugar and the chocolate and white chips. I then set to work coloring out all of the different pieces and then began to layer them.

Here's a look at the finished smore for the jar front. The sticker paper layered very well and adhered without any ripples or bumps onto the jar.  I didn't put a layer of Mod Podge over it, but you could to seal the stickers. I finished off the jar by wrapping some red and white twine several times around the lid. 

Here is a shot showing how I pulled the sticker paper backing off so I can build up the characters.

Here is the cute little smore on the lid of the jar from the Christmas Smores die set.

Here's a look at the card. I used a variety of die cuts from the Holiday CocoaChristmas Smores and the Sweet As A Christmas Cookie Die sets. I cut them all out of plain white cardstock and then colored them with my various markers.

Here is a closer look at them. I used the rolling pin and wrote "Have A" and then the Sweet Christmas sentiment came from the Sweet As A Christmas Cookie die set. I finished off the mat with some of my White Nuvo drops. I added the pink mat onto the largest scallop stitched rectangle die from that set. I then mounted all of that onto a horizontal folded A2 card base.

Here's a look at the cute little tag I made. I used the Holiday Cocoa die set. I colored all of my various pieces with marker after I cut them all out of plain white cardstock.

I cut out an extra die of the cup in white cardstock and then backed the colored die with it. I wrote the "to and from" on there with my red marker.
