8 ½ X 8 ½ inch Baja Breeze Card base
Score at 3 ¾ and at 4 ¾ Fold on all the score lines. This gives you an inch for the test tube.
In the center of the middle fold lines approx. 4 inches up from the bottom, make a cut horizontal and make another cut at 4 ¾ from the top. This will give you the band to hold your test tube. You can then push the band inside the card.
Cut 22 inches of ribbon and wrap around the front and back. I put a section of sticky strip on the back to hold it in place. I positioned the ribbon so it would cover part of the test tube opening.
Cut DSP 3 ½ X 8 ¼ then apply to the front over the ribbon, and inside panels .
Cut out 1 of the scallop envelope dies in Baja Breeze and the other in DSP. Cut off the scallop edge of both the DSP and Baja Breeze envelops.
Fold the envelopes so the flaps are toward the card base. Adhere to the base with Sticky Strip.
Adhere the scallop flaps that you cut off to the opposite envelope. Such as, the Baja Breeze flap to the DSP envelope.
Stamp the inside snowman image in Baja Breeze on Whisper White and punch it out.
Punch out two Real Red scallop circles.
Using the Baja Breeze Marker and the Real Red maker color in your sentiment for the front, then punch it out.
Using Dimensionals apply each stamped image to the front and the inside.
Die cut the Northern Frost Snowflakes in Whisper White.
Adhere snowflakes to the front of the card and on the scallop envelopes.
Use two way glue and apply to the ornament in the sentiment and the snowflakes. Then apply glitter to all areas that you just applied glue.
Fill the test tube with mini marshmallows. I handpicked mine so I got the smaller sizes.
Fold the Hot Chocolate packet so the edges are folded inside so it fits in the envelope.
I added a Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark Square in the upper envelope.
Tie your Goodie card close and you have a cute little giftie for someone.

Love this, I am going to try it out for a few more last minute gifts for people. I have so many of those test tubes and don't know what to do with them, lol! Great idea.
