 Good morning, Doodlebug friends!  It's Wendy Sue here with you today, sharing a fun little project I created with the fabulously sweet and wintery "Frosty Friends" collection.

We're six days into November, and that's just about early enough to start planning neighbor/friend holiday gifts.  I love coming up with lots of different ideas to give away - and this is the first one I've created for this year - little "frosty friends" hot cocoa packets.

I started by making several tags.  I used patterned papers to create the 3" x 6" tag bases.  Next, I cut 3"x4" pieces from coordinating papers in the 6x6 pad.


That's when the real fun started - I added different elements - stickers, washi tape, mini doodle-pops, mini paperclips, sprinkles, etc. to embellish each tag.  Many of the papers and embellishments have glittered elements - love the little bit of sparkle and shine added to these tags!


At the top of each tag, I place a mini doodle-pop snowflake and a colorful clothespin.  I purchased several of these awesome little glassine bags from a local store.  They are just the right size to tuck a 6x6 paper inside - and you can see it through the frost bag! 


 Next, I added a packet or two of hot cocoa mix; I loved that these Swiss Miss packets had blue images and text on them - they matched the collection perfectly!  Next, I folded over the top of the bag and clipped the tag right on to it.


These tags would be cut on any package, card, or even as a little garland!   There are just so many fun possibilities with the frosty friends collection!!
