Seventh Day of Christmas: Hot Cocoa Mug

I love to personal gifts for friends and family and came across these fun blank canvas mugs. I created the insert using the Polar Expressions collection. I then added hot cocoa and marshmellows to a pillow box and created a coordinated band. Would you love to get this gift?? (But of course with you name on it!)

The mug (aka 16 oz Photo Tumbler) comes with a sheet of paper that you can pull out and use as a pattern to create your own insert. I did have to pull the 3D candy canes off the sticker because of the tight fit, but it still turned out super cute. You can purchase the tumblers at Walmart or do a search for them.

aww such a great idea - I cant stand coffee or tea for that matter but I certainly know lots of people this would be perfect for! I just bought this line of papers too and literally just put finishing touches on a card I made out of it!

Melinda Spinks said...

Really gorgeous idea! However, I think I might make these an Easter item because our Christmas is always far too warm for hot-chocolate. :)

Erin said...

This is so so cute.... I wish they had smaller cups because my three year olds newest thing is to have hot chocolate and marshmallows for his nightly snack....

Tracy said...

I just adore this and the hot chocolate sachet and marshallows is the perfect accompaniment ...

Carla said...

Very cute!!! Those cups are not hard to find and very easy to work with! Great gift idea for teachers, day care providers, office co-workers etc.! Who doesn't love a big cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter day?!! Polar Express really adds a great touch! Thanks for sharing with us!!

Wow what a great idea.

Thebug415 said...

OH Like this too. Sooo many great ideas. This would be adorable for a coffee drinker too. Instead of marshmellows and cocoa, a little coffee pack...Target $1 spot has some right now.
