Hot Cocoa a Go Go

My niece attends Purdue University in Indiana. It's been cold and snowing so I thought I would send her a care package to warm her up. I decided hot cocoa would be just the thing. I made some homemade hot cocoa (recipe below), so therefore I needed a container to put it in. Off to Walmart I headed. Can't have hot cocoa without marshmallows! While I was at Walmart I decided to pick some up. I happened upon some French Vanilla flavored, Snowman shaped, marshmallows and viola a theme for my gift was born. Hopped across the street to Kohls and picked up a really cute snowman mug.


The scrapbook paper and Let It Snow sticker are by Reminisce , the icicles are a sticker by Jolee's , I cut the snowman out with my Cricut and added a few random snowflake stickers. A dash of Stickles glitter glue and I was finished!
