Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog - Warming up with Hot Cocoa

Happy New Year! We had a great new year and birthday celebration with family at our house. My youngest, Bryan was born just 2 years ago. The time really has gone by fast.

This week's Challenge Me Monday is #92 - Warming with Hot Cocoa: use a cup or chocolate or even the color brown on your project along with your Cricut cut.

I decided to make a hot cocoa mug holder, which will be the perfect little gift to keep someone warm this winter.

Gypsy Wanderings Cup; cuts at 4.42"H
Tags, Bag, Boxes & More; cuts at 2.25"H & 2"H
Accent Essentials; Circles made into ovals 4"W x 2.62"H
Stampin Up Snowflake Embossing folder
Stampin Up Snowflake Punch
QuickKutz Snowflake

Did you know that you can link your own "Warming up with Hot Cocoa" project to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog? We would love to see what you come up with and thanks for stopping by on Challenge Me Mondays.

  13. @ Janet - you could design a template or maybe there is something in the Cricut Craft Room and you could buy and individual file. Good Luck! - Melanie

  14. Like the cup holder. Was trying to make a shape cup card with Christmas Cheer but not liking how it is welded so I'm going to give this a try.
