On the 11th Day of Christmas....

My True love gave to me eleven pipers piping.....a tall order these days!
Today is my turn to share a project with you from our 12 days of Christmas series at cuttlebug challenge blog, the DT has blown me away with each and every fabulous creation, please be sure to visit them all!

I decided to use piping bags as my interpretation of "pipers piping" These wonderfully fast to whip up gifts of cocoa goodies are the perfect last minute solution.
Go gather your supplies...I will wait for you :) {insert music}.........you will need
2 cocoa pouches per cone
2 piping bags
marshmallows, sprinkles, and candies {choc chips etc}
ribbon, rubberband, stamps, paper, embelishments

Pour contents of 2 cocoa pouches into bag, and trim off excess, fold over tightly.Slide into 2nd piping bag{ this is an important step} it will prevent your cocoa from migrating all throughout the bag,{trust me} dirty looking marshmallows are not pretty! :)
I used the top note die to create a tag,its embossed with the new flurries folder and sanded lightly on core'dinations paper.
Decorate as desired, and you have a fun and impressive {quick} gift, no need to rush to the drug store on the way to the party because you forgot a hostess gift!!! {yes. I have been there done that}
I made enough of these for a small army, Chella took them to all of her teachers, and they were "wowed" I'm pretty sure she is closer to being the teachers pet than she was last week :0
