How to Make Hot Cocoa Packet Envelopes: The Holidays are Coming!

Share it with your friends Like

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Greetings! I have made some decorated envelopes for hot cocoa packets or trail mix or mini microwave popcorn or even a small packet of M & M’s to be slipped inside.

These are really great and versatile. You can even use them to give a gift card! I have done up a couple of examples here two for Halloween and two for Christmas and then demonstrated one for Christmas as well.

These are really simple and can be made quickly. They are a great idea for classmates, work mates, church congregations, bridal showers, baby showers or even as an extra special treat for all the neighborhood kids at Halloween!

You will be able to get 2 envelopes out of one 12×12 sheet of cardstock. I used a corner rounder on my outer flap, but you don’t have to do that, I have the tools to do that so I did. I also used the Martha Steward Scoring board which is available at any craft store such as Michael’s, Joanne Fabric, Archivers, Hobby Lobby etc. They run about $20.00 but if you get it at Michael’s, keep an eye out for their 40 or 50% off coupons each week available in their Sunday circular or on their website. Michael’s even has an iphone app that you can access scannable coupons on, right at the register!

Here are the measurements you will need:

Cut paper 11×5 inches.

Score on short side at:

2 inches and 7 inches

Score on long side at:

1/2 inch on each side.

You can decorate these any way you like!

I hope you give these a try and I hope you love them!

Happy Crafting!

These are really cute! I work at a local school in a before and after care and want to do something for the kids. I am going to use these with the hot chocolate and a candy cane. I think the kids will love them.

Brenda Hill says:

Thanks so much.  Can you believe I've been searching for days for a more finished and less "homemade" looking pouch to make for using with a "grown up" look.  Thanks so much for these very easy instructions.

Would be darling for Valentine's Day. My birthday is the day after Valentine's Day. Mom said had I been born a day earlier, she would have named me Valentina. Glad I dodged that!

you could use Velcro
to make it resealable or add a pocket on the front and put in a little gift card or something 🙂

gingergargoyle says:

Very cute idea – I will have to make some of these for the holidays … But I think I will shy away from the "poison" tag, after all we don't want to panic parents or confuse the kids

WestCoastPrepperRN says:

Another great idea Noreen! Thanks for sharing…BTW, I have to tell you thanks for sharing about the punches at TJMaxx…I cleaned them out the other day – GREAT HAUL!!! Then, a few days later my cousin made an ever bigger haul than me because they had restocked! I also went to Tuesday Mornings and I don't even want to talk about how much great stuff I got there…lets just say I will NOT be making a video about it because if my husband saw it he'd croak over! LOL (((HUGS)))

soldonhim says:

I detest winter and live for our low humidity summers in the Northwest, but this is a great idea. Thanks!

hunyb207 says:

LOVE this idea!! Do you take any requests for videos? I make dog treats for all of the dogs in my family for the holidays (9 dogs total) and I'm always looking for new ideas/recipes. Could you possibly make a "the holidays are coming" video on dog treat gifts? Thank you!!
