Cocoa and Candy Cane Holder

This idea was shared on Pinterest by Peggy Wilson.  I modified the original design and will be making several of these to tuck inside packages this Christmas.  The candy canes I had on hand are a little too large so I'll have to pick some up tomorrow to finish them up.

Using Hallmark Card Studio, I printed the sentiment onto the front.  Then I trimmed the upper right corner off and glued the front edge of the card to the back to make a pocket. 

The steam and cup of cocoa are clip art images.  They're mounted onto a 2 3/8" scalloped circle and a 2 3/4" inch circle.  The lower band is 1 1/2" wide.  I added some stitching with a Signo pen, then tucked in the candy cane and cocoa packet.
