I love hot cocoa. There is no way around that fact. The thing is, once you have had the basic hot cocoa, no matter how much you love it, you are probably craving some different types of hot cocoa. Here is a simple recipe for a hot cocoa you can use to store anything, from jewelry to hot cocoa mix.
    What you need:
  •  One small round cardboard box, with a lid
  • White felt
  • brown felt
  • glue dots
  • cotton balls
    What to do:
  1.  Measure the box (not the lid) for circumference. Next measure how tall the box is. Mark and cut out a piece of white felt that big. Place the bottom of the box onto the white felt, and, using a pencil, trace around it. Cut this out.
  2. Using glue dots, glue on the circle to the bottom of the box. Do the same with the rectangle.
  3. Take the lid of the box, and follow steps one and two, but when measuring the side, make it a bit longer than needed. Use the brown felt for the top of the lid.
  4. Measure the total height of the box, and cut out a white piece of felt that long and 1/2 inch long. Use a glue dot to fasten one end to the bottom of the box, about one inch from the bottom. Use another glue dot to fasten it to the lid.
  5. Using glue dots, fasten 3 or 4 cotton balls to the brown felt. Let everything dry before use.
Not a hot cocoa fan? Instead of brown felt, use the color of your favorite hot drink. You can also use any other color of felt instead of white.

    I have loved doing crafts, cooking, and writing all my life. Ever since I was a little girl, I have had great joy helping make cookies (though I probably was more of a bother than a help!) and I loved putting my heart into drawings that only I could understand.  That is, until I would run off and do something else! Though I do not know you, and probably never will, I hope with all my heart that you will grow in your joy of creating items with your hands and heart.
