Hot Chocolate Stations are all the rage!

But for someone with no counter space... it needs to be portable.

I tried... I organized a great coffee station in my kitchen but most of it was inside the drawer and not on top of the counter. 

This one is compact, portable, and would make a great gift!

I used a vintage shoe shine box that already had

I added the words "hot chocolate" with silver vinyl using my Silhouette machine.

Large Ball jars filled with hot chocolate mix, marshmallows,
and candy canes fit perfectly in the tote.

I cut circles out of decorative paper to fit inside the lids.
