Double Pocket Drink Holder

Last week I received a lovely prize package from Lori Hairston's Vision of Sugarplums Blog Hop. Oh my!! It was so full of so many fun things. It was like Christmas came early for me. As soon as I saw the red and green striped waxed bags, I knew what I wanted to create.

I made this fun little double pocket bag that can hold a hot chocolate packet and a tea bag as well as a candy cane.

I folded the  bottom 2/3-ish of the bag up and adhered the sides with Xtreme Adhesive. This creates a pocket as well as the pocket at the top from the natural opening of the bag.

To add some contrast, I cut some checked designer paper to the bottom pocket I created with Xtreme Adhesive and then added a paper doily with Mono Adhesive Dots. Some coordinating washi tape, a fun bauble, and some gold twine ribbon finish it off. The washi tape and twine were also part of the prize package.

To make the Santa bauble, I punched a 1" image from some designer paper and adhered to the 1" flat back marble with Mono Liquid Aqua Glue and then adhered to the front of the double pocket bag with Xtreme Adhesive.

There is enough candy cane to stir into some hot chocolate, hot vanilla tea and to enjoy by itself. This is a perfect little gift to give  and easy to whip up.
