Here a little "chill chaser" Cosmo-licious project, that is over on the Cosmo
Cricket blog today! If you haven't had a chance to hop over there.....pop by
and say hi, and leave a comment, cause they are giving away some goodies,
too! Read all the info over there! Well, on to the project.....below is some of
the Jolly by Golly collection....a couple of the journal cards (LOVE! can
really alter these up!) and I cut a piece of Core'dinations out with Spellbinders
labels 14, then scuffed it up.....

Below is how it looked when I put it all together (the cup is pop dotted)...
And here's the finished folder.....I used a 6x6 base just cut a
12x12 sheet of paper in two, and you've got what you need to make the
folder! I trimmed it out in more Cosmo goodness.....a journal strip, pretty
paper (PP). Love that snowflake paper! And then ready set chipboard that I
added the words to, using the tiny type alpha.....yep, you know it.....LOVE!!
This is the inside....I added a piece of velcro to hold it closed.....the swirl is
cut out of more Cosmo PP, and the Cocoa is the Jolly by Golly alpha....I
wanted all the letters to look the same.....and there was only a red A on the
sheet.....soooooo, I used the V turned it upside down, and added a little
piece of the brown paper I used to make the's all about the
Here's a detail shot of the cocoa pouch, I fed the ribbon thru a hole here,
tied a triple knot behind to hold it in place.....
And, you know, I just can't leave well enough alone.....what is a gift without
a matching card?? Here's where that altered set of journal cards ended up!
And a little chipboard snowflake from Mitten Weather, and a little bling....
Cute little teachers gift, bus driver gift.....anytime you want to give a little
something. You could also add a gift card inside the card to complete it as
a bigger gift.

Hope you enjoyed......have another project coming next week, and I may
just sneak in a few more of Tim's tags.....there are 5 more sitting here
completed.....still have 4 more I'd like to do.....those may be a New Year's
project! Say hi, if you stop by, and watch for more goodies soon!!
