~Make It Monday Ribbon Pleating~

I made some quick gifts to share today...

His and Hers Cocoa Packs with Flavored Spoons!

 The "pockets" are some DP that's 8"X8". I cut one in half; folded it, and used 1/2" Scor-Tape on two loose sides.

I made a little "topper" fancy, by using the pleated ribbon technique showcased  by Dawn on Make It Monday #43
on the "hers".

I further feminized the "hers" with tassel poms made from twine.

The guy pocket just has a straight ribbon without poms on the hat.

Here's a behind shot of those cute snowman faces.

The spoons are easy peasy...just fill 1/3 Ramekin with chocolate chips, melt them in the microwave for about 40-50 seconds, and stir with a plastic spoon.

Shake on some peppermint sprinkles, and stick them (sitting up in a short cup) in the fridge for a few minutes. Once they harden, place them in pretzel bags (craft stores that sell baking bags should have them). Twist tie your goodies, and you have a perfect addition to a plain cocoa pack.

I slid the spoon above the cocoa's nestled in the little topper.

A great way to whip up an inexpensive couple gift...and use up some 8X8" DP!

Thanks for stopping in today-hope you got a bit of inspiration. ;)
