Hot Cocoa Holder

This K-Cup hot cocoa holder is a fun, modern twist of gifting hot cocoa for the holidays. It’s also a great project for using up single sheets of winter and Christmas patterned paper.


Made by: Samantha Taylor

Time: 30 minutes

Level: Moderate handiness

Size: 4” x 4 ¾”


Supply List:

  • Glue Lines®
  • Craft Dots™
  • 8 ½” x 10 ½” double sided patterned paper
  • Paper Scorer
  • 1 ½” circle punch or die
  • 2 K-Cups
  • Embellishments (optional)

 Directions: Place your patterned paper (cut to 8 ½” x 10 ½”) on your paper scorer the tall way (portrait orientation). Score at 2” and 6 ½”.

Rotate your patterned paper 90 degrees (landscape orientation). Score at 4”, 6”, 8”, and 10”.

Sore at the 2” mark only to the horizontal score lines you’ve already made (scoring 2” in on both sides, leaving the 4 ½” section in the center unscored).

Use your score lines as guides to cut the corners out.

Cut along each of the 2” score marks along the long sides of your paper in to the long score mark, to create flaps (see photo).

Use the 1½" circle punch or die to cut 2 circles into the bottom most 2” x 4 ½” panel.

Fold into a box shape. Use Craft Dots to close side (square) panels.

Use Glue Lines to secure the ½” flap to the box.

Add optional embellishments.
Place K-Cups in holes.

This project makes a great gift for friends at the office, neighbors, or teachers. Change up the patterned paper and type of K-Cup for different seasons. Use different themed paper and apple cider K-Cups for fall or some floral paper and chi tea K-Cups in spring - the possibilities are endless!
