Just a little something

I was commenting on Crafting Vicky's blog and the theme of the challenge she had made her DT card for was "warm thoughts" over at Digi Makeover Challenge.  A little pouch that I saw a tutorial for many years ago sprang to mind.  The tutorial is by Paul over at Crafty Blogocks.  The one I've made is a bit different but the principle is the same.

I used my CraftArtist program and the digikit Cocoa Latte to print out the card on both sides then I printed and cut out an embellie to put on the front, when I've more time to play I will have a go at printing it onto the back of the card.  I can get 2 pouches out of 1 A4 piece of card.  Now I've made this up I think next time I will make slots in the slope instead of 1 oval and insert 3 or 4 sachets of hot chocolate and maybe some tiny marshmallows.  When I find my hook and loop tape I will put a small piece on to hold the flap in place.
Don't have any sachets so used a folded up crisp packet
Sending Hugs to everyone and hoping you are either keeping safe and warm or safe and cool depending on where you are in the world.  In Sheffield we have snow, not good if you have to go out in it but the trees look fantastic.  :-) xx
