Christmas Chocolate... post 1 of 2

I don't know what the weather has been like where you are, but here in the Colorado Rockies it's been positively chilly! Tonight, it was down to -6 by 7:30. Brrrr.... There is nothing I like more in cold weather than a nice, steaming hot cup of cocoa, extra chocolaty, filled to the brim with marshmallows with a candy cane stir stick. Just thinking about it makes warm and cozy... I might have to have me a cup before I go to bed.
Anywho, our project this week at Practical Scrappers was to share a gift wrapping idea or something we've made as a gift. This little altered lunch tin fits both categories:
It would be great alone as gift wrapping for a small present (like a few pairs of fun & funky socks), or to hold this Warm Winter Wishes gift set, filled with all the fixings for the perfect cup of cocoa:
Hot Cocoa
Tons of Mini Marshmallows
Mini Chocolate Chips
Mini Candy Canes

This tin was originally used as packaging for some chipboard snowflakes from Maya Road. The papers and die cut girl are from My Mind's Eye - the little Eskimo girl has some Stickles for a little extra jazzy touch. I added some rub-on snowflakes from Stampin' Up and tons of ribbon from my stash to complete the look.
