Hot Chocolate Pocket

I thought the wonderful Cocoa image from Think & Wonder was perfect for making a Hot Chocolate Gift Pocket.

I measured my hot chocolate package, and then cut a strip from Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby paper several inches shorter than the package (I could have done the full height and used a circle punch at the top, but I loved how the foil from the package coordinated with the paper).
Next, I scored the strip about 1/2" wider than my package and ended with a 1" tab to fold over and attach the pocket together. I used strong double-sided tape at the tab and the bottom to create the pocket.

I added the Postcard image from Ephemeral Backgrounds down the side and a sentiment from Think & Wonder at the bottom. I finished with a wrap of chocolate twill ribbon. I love how these images look stamped on designer papers.

WOW! Gorgeous! So brilliant to combine those images with that patterned paper of Tim's - a match made in heaven. TFS!
