  Now for today's projects
With this one sheet of paper I created this version of the Cocoa Packet.

Cut a 12" x 6" piece of red cardstock for base of project. Fold this in half.
Cut out the Large Cocoa mugs. trim to fit the front of card and adhere to front of card.

 Cut the remaining squares  to 5 7/8" x 5 7/8" size.

Adhere the red stripe and the green stripe to the inside of the card.

Cut 2 - 5 7/8" x 3" pieces of red cardstock.
Cut the cocoa mug piece in half across the width.  Trim to fit onto the smaller red pieces of cardstock and adhere to the red cardstock.  Apply adhesive to the sides and bottom of the red cardstock and adhere to the card.  This will create a pocket for the tags and cocoa packet.  Add stickles to project for extra bling. Fill pockets with recipes and cocoa packet.
