Today is the 11th day of the Twelve Days of Christmas Crafts!  I created this project to share over on the Clearsnap blog today for our blog hop. You can join in on the hop HERE — today is the last day to enter to win a fab prize featuring some of the goodies I used on this project.

These tubes came out last year and this year they seem to be all the rage for making Christmas gifities. I created a hot cocoa gift set–this can be a stocking stuffer or a small gift for a co-worker. 

This hot cocoa set features a tube of hot cocoa mix and a tube of Candy Cane Kisses, decorated for the season with Imaginisce's Santa's Little Helper collection.

I used the penguin embossed chipboard sticker from Imaginisce's Santa's Little Helper Collection to embellish the tubes. To create the texture on the penguin's cap, apply *new* EmbossGloss to the penguin's cap.

Then sprinkle with *new* ColorBox Scentz Scented Embossing Powder in Peppermint and heat set. This scented embossing powder really packs a punch of mint, perfectly festive for the holiday season. The scent lasts 2-3 weeks after embossing.

After heat setting, apply heat a second time to the embossing powder until it bubbles. This process of burning the powder creates a fluffly, puffed texture in the powder, giving the cap more definition and depth. Apply *new* Smooch Glitz in Firecracker to the berries on the Holly Diecut.
