Photoplay Frostival Hot Chocolate Shaker Party
Hello, Friends! Winter is in full swing, so I thought I’d warm things up with a Photoplay Frostival Hot Chocolate Shaker Party. Oh, the weather outside is frightful…so a cup of hot chocolate is truly delightful! Once again, I pulled out my trusty December Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Then I proceeded to put together this festive winter card.
Wonderful things happen when you clean out a storage bin. That’s where I found this super cute wooden hoop that came from who knows where, who knows when! But doesn’t it work perfectly as a shaker frame?
Next I created borders with some of the inky blue satin ribbons I had left from the Club Assortment. This is one of my favorite ways to use printed ribbon. First, it looks great! Then, there’s the ease factor. Just lay down a strip of Scor-Tape, attach ribbon, and you’re done! Next, there’s the fact that the ribbon creates the perfect spot to dangle a cluster of winter charms. Now that’s fun!
A Peek Inside
My friends, I grew up in Vermont where winter is real and winter is brutal. Somehow, we still managed to spend endless hours outside sledding, building snow forts, having snow ball fights, playing fox and geese in the snow. Our favorite time to sled was after supper. We lived at the top of a very long hill. There was one streetlight at the very top and one almost at the bottom. The light from the moon mixed with the light from the street lamps created a hazy blue hue on the fallen snow. Yes, it was freezing. But it was magical. And when we were too cold to move, we could go inside and enjoy a hot cup of cocoa.
Naturally, I had to wrap up a pouch of yummy cocoa to tuck into the pocket of this card. Were you wondering when the party was going to start? How about now? Cocoa, cookies, a peppermint stick stirrer and a yummy bit of chocolate. Aaaah! Now we can curl up with a good book and mark our place with this cute bookmark.
Isn’t ribbon amazing? It can inspire such fun projects and be used in so many ways. I hope I’ve shared a few ideas you can us in this cheery winter post.
Now excuse me…I need to go find a cuppa cocoa!
Thanks for stopping by!
