Cocoa to Go Caddy

Hello to all of you A Little Tipsy friends!  I'm Amy from The Happy Scraps where I love to share paper crafting, cardmaking, scrapbooking, decor, and sewing ideas.  I'm so happy to be here today sharing a fun Christmas gift idea for a friend or neighbor.  I'm sharing this Hot Cocoa to-go caddy.

I started with an empty bottle box that I up-cycled.  I have several of these that I collected from a family party a while back.  I measured all the sides and cut paper to fit, and then adhered it to the box.

I chose a couple of different patterns of paper to add variety to the caddy.

Then I cut some coordinating green cardstock to make a band around the box.

Using my Cricut and Cricut Craft Room, I cut these bracket shapes out to make my gift tag/label.  Then I just used a fun Merry Christmas stamp, and signed our name, tied it with twine, and put it on the band around the box.

These bottle are my favorite part of the whole package. :)  I used my Cricut again to cut out the vinyl for the bottles.  I think labels like this make anything cuter!

After filling the bottles up with cocoa powder, mini marshmallows, and mini peppermint marshmallow bits, I put the corks in, and I wrapped the tops with twine then tied a bow.

Then they were all ready to go in the caddy.  I wrapped some paper straws up with twine as well and put those in, so that when they mix up their hot cocoa, they can sip it up in style.

I hope you've enjoyed this fun Hot Cocoa Christmas gift idea for your friends and neighbors!

Thank you so much to Michelle for having me over today!  I hope you'll all come by The Happy Scraps and say hi!  I'd love to have you.


Oooh, I just love this! What a perfect neighbor gift for the holidays! A huge thanks to Amy for sharing her fun project with us!

Yes please tell us where you found the marshmallows. Michaels sell like 1/4 of that for $6 and calls it snowman poop!

Here are the answers from Amy herself: "I got the bottles from spoons and spice in Sandy, I'm sure most kitchen stores would have them. The peppermint bits came from Walmart. They are the Jet-puffed brand just like these." Thanks Amy!
