Who Loves Cocoa?!

Welcome!  Stacy here on this bright and sunny Tuesday with a fun gift bag to share with you. I am always needing gifts for teachers and with 5 kids that can really add up. I try to find gift ideas that aren't super expensive but are still special. To me Fall just screams "cocoa" so I make up a cocoa mix to giveaway. When I saw the Strawberry Kisses Together Forever stamp set from Crafter's Companion, I just knew it would be perfect for a gift bag full of cocoa.

To start, I got out a lunch bag because really why spend a lot when you can get a pile of these babies for a nice price? Then I pulled out some card stock and some complementary patterned paper. I stamped my image and colored it with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. The colors I used were: TN1, TN2, TN3, TN4, TN7, LV1, LV2, LV3, IG1, IG2, EB5, EB6, GB1, BT1, PP6, BT1.

I layered the image onto some card stock, then I added a ribbon tab and some pearls colored with my Spectrum Noir markers. I love that you can color customize things so easily with these awesome markers!!

I used a Martha Stewart punch for my bag topper. I edge punched both sides of a piece of white card stock and then folded it in half and punched two holes through the topper and the bag at the same time. I stamped out the cup of cocoa and colored it. And I added it to the bag topper with a brad.
Now I just need to add the bag of cocoa and send it off to a teacher! I hope you enjoyed seeing this sweet stamp as much as I had coloring it.
