Cable Knit and Hot Cocoa

The weather here in lower Delawareis growing chilly. Time to pull out the cable knit sweaters and enjoy some hot chocolate. I’m preparing things for our big Craft Fair on Saturday and brought out the Cable Knit Embossing Folder to make some holders for hot chocolate mix.

Isn’t that cute? The little Treat Tube holds some dehydrated marshmallows and some crushed candy cane bits to go along with the hot chocolate mix.

Design Notes for Cable Knit Hot Cocoa Holder:

I created the folder using Soft Sky card stock and placed in in the Cable Knit Embossing Folder. This folder is referred to as a Dynamic Folder because it gives you a very deep impression. It really looks like a cable knit sweater!

By the way, be sure to use Tear n’ Tape when assembling this. It will withstand the pressure of the package and the Treat Tube. I also used the 1/4″ Punch to make some hole for the ribbon around the test tube.
