Candy Cane Cocoa Gift Idea with GCD Studios {& a giveaway!!}

**This is post #2 for the day....please scroll down to see my Lawn Fawn "Critters in the Snow" sneak peek!!** 

Happy November everyone!!  Can you believe that Christmas is just a little under 2 months away!  Craziness, I tell you.  Well, today I have an inexpensive and easy gift that you can make for your neighbors, co-workers, or acquaintances.  This little set goes perfectly with the fun and whimsical colors and patterns in the GCD Studios "Christmas Sleigh" paper collection...which is what I used here!



Adding the ingredients into the pretty cellophane was very easy!  Just cut a piece, and curve it into your cup.  Add 4 tablespoons of cocoa mix, 4 mini candy canes broken up with a hammer, and a hand full of mini marshmallows.  Tie it all up with some ribbon, and then cut the top off in order to even it out.  I added some tissue paper into the bottom of my cup so that the cocoa mixture would sit higher in it, as it is a pretty deep cup.  Then make a cute little tag and card to match, and you have a super easy gift to give out that the receiver is sure to love!!

{GIVEAWAY} info:
GCD Studios is also doing a giveaway on the blog!  One lucky person is going to win both of the latest GCD Studios Christmas paper collections, "Christmas Sleigh" & "Joyful Peace".  So, head on over to THIS POST and leave a comment.  But wait before you go...I am going to give you another chance of winning a prize!!  Leave a comment on my post here, and two lucky winners will receive a 6x6 paper set of "Christmas Sleigh"!!  This will be perfect for some holiday card making!!  I will draw a winner this Friday...so get to commenting!!

Enjoy this November, and I hope you have a wonderful time creating all those fabulous handmade gifts this time of year!  ♥♥♥

Until later,
