DIY Project - Hot Cocoa and Mashmallows

Our next DIY project is so ridiculously cute, you are going to die. They were filled with homemade snowflake marshmallows and hot cocoa, then placed lovingly into the guests' rooms as a sweet treat. So great!

Recipe for Homemade Marshmallows



Instructions:



1. Print pattern onto a card stock and trim to 3.75 x 3" then round the right side corners with a corner punch tool.  (You could use any patterned paper for this project and just mount it to a card stock with spray mount.)



2. Print the smaller labels onto a card stock. I used a silver metallic to coordinate with our wedding colors. trim each one out using an x-acto knife and ruler. Then hole punch (only half) on either side for sewing.



3. Line up pieces of paper with the left edge of the muslin bag and sew with a coordinating thread color. I used my basic sewing machine to do the sewing and they turned out well.



4. For the note inside we printed a greeting onto the same silver card stock and rounded the edges with a corner punch tool.



5. The homemade snowflake marshmallows were made from a recipe found at marthastewart.com.



We packaged the marshmallows in cellophane envelopes with a re-sealable glue strip to maintain freshness. Add individual hot cocoa packets in similar colors to complete the gift!
