Hey there! I'm so happy to be here on this Friday sharing my latest project with you! As one who adores this time of year and all the cozy things that come with cooler weather, one of my very favorite things is curling up on my couch with a warm blankie and a mug of something nice and warm! Sometimes is hot cocoa, sometimes is apple cider... I love them both!  I thought I would make a few little gifts for my neighbors to share this time of year with these fun little Hot Drink holders. 

As you can see, this project does not take a lot of products to make, yet they are super cute! I was so excited to use our new Buffalo Check pattern paper to make these. I also did a little stamping - which I usually don't do a ton of, but the "You're Sweet" stamp found on the "Pumpkin Spice" stamp set made for the perfect sentiment for these holders. I also included some little drinks and hearts which are from the "Pumpkin Spice" and "Bake Me Happy" Shape Sprinkles to decorate.  

I used both sides of the Buffalo Check papers on my holders with the plaid part on a strip on the front of the holder and then the super fun woodgrain paper that lines the inside of the holder. Both of these patterns are wonderful and coordinate so well with the Pumpkin Spice collection!

These are super easy to make and I'd like to share a  tutorial with you on how you can make some of your own! Here we go! 

First, you will need an 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch of paper. I used some basic kraft cardstock for my holders.

We need to cut this paper in half so we get 2 triangle shapes. To get this, simply place the paper diagonally on a paper trimmer with two ends on the cutting line.

This is what the paper will look like when you are done trimming it.
Next, grab a scoring tool and lay the long end across the top of your score board. Score the paper as shown at 4 inches and 8 inches.

Next, trim a piece of pattern paper just under 4 inches ( like 3 7/8) x 6 inches. Glue the paper in between the center of the 2 score lines you just made. Trim the top edges off so they are even with the kraft paper base. 
Now, go ahead and fold on your score lines and then add some strong tape along the bottom edge of the two flaps. 
Finally, here is your completed holder. All you need to do now is decorate it up! 
To decorate mine, I cut a 2 1/8 inch stitched circle with a die-cut and then stamped my sentiment and decorated the circle.  I then die cut a scallop circle with some of our Bon Bon textured cardstock to back the circle. I added these two to the center of the holder with some foam tape. You can also add some twine and a button around the Buffalo Check strip if you'd like

These little cuties were a breeze to put together and now I have a fun stash that I can keep on hand and pull out whenever I'd like to send one off. These would also make really fun teacher gifts, friend gifts, or even little favors to put on your Thanksgiving tables. You could even add a gift card to a favorite coffee shop for some added fun. There are so many great reasons to share a little bit of warm and cozy greetings to someone special this year! Thank you so much for stopping by today and happy crafting my friends!
