Hi Everyone! I have a very cute little treat holder based on a hot cocoa k-cup.
The treat holder can contain mini-candy canes and hershey kisses to stir into your hot cocoa. Or, for those who enjoy an after-dinner liquor, you can use a hot cocoa or a cappuccino k-cup and add a mini-bottle or Bailey’s irish cream or a peppermint or espresso liquor. Many tasty options.
Start with a 6″ by 8″ piece of stiffer patterned paper in a color you would like for your tree. With the 6″ side up, and the top of any directional pattern to the right, score at 1/2″, which will be the base. Turn the long side up, with the base down, and score at 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″, 3 3/4″, 5″, 6 1/4″ and 7 1/2″. Flip the paper top to bottom, and score at 5/8″, 1 7/8″, 3 1/8″, 4 3/8″, 5 5/8″ and 6 7/8″. Fold the first set of folds out, and the second set of folds in. Then fold the 1/2″ score line at the bottom. On the bottom of the 1/2″ glue tab, remove the bottom 1/2″ section. Glue the 1/2″ section to form a cylinder. Turn the bottom up, and folding an outside fold out, cut a 45 degree miter from the score line to the bottom. Repeat all the way around.
I am punting on the rest of the instructions, because I have tried to write them in an understandable way, unsuccessfully. The video is much better at explaining the process. If you have questions after the video, just ask. It will help me know where the confusing bits are.
Enjoy the video, and I hope you enjoy the project.
May your hearts continue to wait for God’s greatest gift. Smiles, Darby
