Anything But A Card Challenge At Bugaboo

So it is Day 3 of the Christmas In July Fun over at Bugaboo and today is Anything Bug A Card Day to boot. So the Designers all came up with some great gift and packaging ideas for you and we stuck to the color scheme here. You can choose any kind of project that you like, card,tag, gift, just use these colors.
So for my project I chose to make this adorable Cocoa Holder. You could put anything in it though. Hot Apple Cider Mix, A Soup packet (do they even make those anymore?)   It could even hold a cookie. Just make the container and add any image you like. I used the Snowman Cocoa image and colored it with my Copics and added some liquid applique on the hat trim and the Cocoa.
 The measurements for the pouch are: a rectangle 7.5" X 4" and score at .5",3.5",4"and 7" along the 7.5" side. Score at the 3.5" along the bottom edge. Make small cuts up to the 3.5 score line on each score along long side. Fold all the score lines, glue the .5" end to the 7" side and then fold the bottom pieces and glue together.
These are pretty quick and fun to make and they would be great for a party favor or a teacher gift or if you were really motivated a great gift for all the kids in the class.
So I hope you have fun with the Challenge today and I just wanted to say there have been some great entries in all the challenges so far. Have a good day everyone.
