Hot choc pouch for a Friend

This is my DT project for the 3rd challenge here at Susie's Sassy Challenge
What better way to put a smile on a friends face in this freezing cold weather than to reminded them to button up there coat and pop round for a warming hot chocolate and a chat and if they are to far away to pop round them this makes a nice little gift to send in the post.
The theme of our 3rd challenge (if you haven't already seen it) is Buttons & Bows check it out Here Why not join in the challenge the prize this month is a GDT spot.
To make this pouch I used a template from Papertrey Ink by Lauren Meader called Around Town Tote, I cut it out in Aqua card and then stitched BG DP from the figgy collection to the front.
The stamp I used is from Stampendouse.
I also used;
velvet ribbon from Fancy pants
BasicGrey buttons & Twine
Prima flowers
And a fancy brad from MM
And of course Cadbury Highlights hot chocolate
I have entered this into the following challenges;
Allsorts challenge Buttons
Just us Girls Challenge use a template I used one from Papertrey Ink by Lauren Meader called Around Town Tote.
Double Dutch challenge Make a holder for a sachet of hot chocolate
La La Land challenge Buttons

How cute! What a great fun inexpensive gift for those acquaintances that aren't yet to friend status but are on their way and you want to show them some love during the holidays but don't think a large present is appropriate!
