Happy Black Friday!

Hey there Friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We sure did.  We had lots of good food and time with our family and it was a fabulous day.  Linz declared it "the BEST Thanksgiving EVER".  (shocker...I know!)

My mom and I braved the craziness last night and went to a couple of stores for the Pre Black Friday Sales.  We got some great deals....even if we weren't "hard core" shoppers like some of the folks we saw.  It's always fun just spending time with my Mom. 

Today we are packing up for an awesome weekend adventure.  I'll be sharing photos and stories so stay tuned.  First, though, I thought I'd share a fun, new project with you to get the holidays kicked off in style.  It's called "Santa's Stache Cocoa Holder".  Here it is....

It's a fun way to share a yummy treat with someone special this Christmas.  Here's a peek inside...


I came up with this "box" idea to hold a large pack of cocoa mix and a peppermint stirring stick.  I found these cute packs of "Polar Express" hot cocoa at a local grocery store.  Aren't they fun? 

As a special treat for you I'm adding the measurements here on my blog.  I hope you can make some to share with your friends too.  Here it is....

Measurements Etc.

Card Stock:  Cut 1 piece 8 1.2" x 8 3/4"
Score on the 8 3/4" width @ 3/4", 1 1/4", 4 3/4" and 5 1/4"
Score on the 8 1/2" width @ 1 3/4" and 2 1/4"
Cut out sections as shown.  Cut slits as shown.
Fold on all score lines and adhere "X" sections to corresponding tabs.
Decorate as desired.  Enjoy!

Don't forget...only a couple more days of Stampin' Up's! ONLINE EXTRAVAGANZA.  So many AWESOME deals....So little time.  Check it out at my Online SU! Website.  Just click HERE.
No crazy shoppers....No long lines...It will rock your socks!  :-)

Ok...I'm off on an adventure!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Stamped Blessings,
