I have been making a lot of gifts this year. It's for a few reasons, but it has really stretched me in a good way. One thing I just finished up is a few Hot Chocolate Party in a Box gifts.
I found this really cute Hot Chocolate Party invitation here. I filled it in with very vague info as it is for a gift. I then made some pom pom's for the outside packaging.
For the inside of the package I crocheted little coffee mug cozies (pattern used is from here). I used Lily Sugar n' Cream yarn, so I had to make the cozies smaller than the pattern as she used a different type of yarn. I suggest having a cup with you while crocheting then "trying it on" and adjusting throughout the creation.
I ended up making 10. All using what I had in my stash. It ended up being very therapeutic this weekend as I processed what happened on Friday and prayed a lot. It still grieves my heart so, but I am so thankful for God's peace.
Lastly, I cut out coffee mugs from card stock and put it in the cozy. That way they would know what it was for :) Of course, I also add a bag or marshmallows and hot chocolates in the gift as well. If I had the time, I would have tried making the marshmallows and hot chocolate on a stick! Maybe next year :)
