Warm Hug ~ Verve Style

Happy Terrific Tuesday everyone!  This is my quiet day with only the little guy in the house so, for me, it is indeed Terrific! I have a couple of posts to share with you today for the Verve Tags, Tins And Treats Project Parade.  This post is also for the Everything But The Kitchen Sink challenge: to use a box top in your projects.  I chose to use the box top from Nestle's Rich and Creamy Hot Chocolate as well as the individual packets for the treat.

For the Thanks a Latte card I used the box flap to hold my chocolate treat package together. See the picture below to see how I covered most of it up and cut the slit.  For my second packet I used 3/4" circle punch out the "Made with Real Cocoa" and adhered it with a dimensional. This packet is held together by enveloping it in a Melon Mambo strip of paper that can be slipped off to open.  I'm not a fan of the Pink and Brown together but it was worth a try :)  Both packages can fit in an A4 envelope and used instead of a card.

Thanks A Latte
