Anything but a Card Day at Bugaboo

Yes, it is anything but a card day at http://www.bugaboostamps.com/, and do I have a project for you!  Right after Christmas, my friend Tammy picked up some reduced items for me that could be altered.  (This items were greatly reduced--after a holiday is a great time to look for bargains!)  This cute bottle was one of them.  It was filled with some type of drink mix--and I quickly got rid of that!  I removed all packaging from the outside, and started thinking what I could do with this.  I decided to make a container for coffee/cocoa mix, along with a recipe card for the coffee/cocoa mix.  The recipe is one from Martha's recipes, and it is great (especially for the weather we are having here.  It is snowing again with up to 9" expected!)  I used the image from Bugaboo called Christmas mice--cocoa on both the jar and the recipe card.  I colored both images to match, using copics.  The cups image at the bottom of the jar is from The Craft Lounge coffee set, and it is adhered to Papertrey DP. I punched out hearts to decorate, squeezed on some liquid applique for marshmallows, and used nestie ovals.  I am so pleased with the way this turned out.  This will make a great gift for someone!

This project will be entered in the challenge at:
The challenge (Makeup 4 the Weekend # 16) was to make a treat box or holder.

By the way, don't forget to enter our "Go for the Gold" Challenge at http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/
