Snowman Soup!
Here is a fun and quick little gift that everyone loves!
It has a poem and the bag is filled with an envelope of Hot Chocolate, a peppermint Candy Cane, Mini Marshmellows, and a piece of chocolate.

Every year I send Snowman soup to my Nieces and Nephews for Christmas. This year, I found this cute little bag on Stampin' Connection and had to make it.
The poem on the tag reads:
"I was told you've been real good this year,
Always glad to hear it!
With freezing weather drawing near,
You'll need to warm the spirit.
So here's a little Snowman Soup,
Complete with Stirring stick.
Add hot water, stir it slow,
It's sure to do the trick!"
I used the Fancy Box Die with my Big Shot for the Bag. The eyes are the 3/4" punch in Basic Black and I used the White Gel Pen for highlights. The Cheeks are the 1-1/4" punch, sponged with Blushing Bride Classic Ink. The nose is punched with the Word Window punch and then I trimmed the end to a point. The mouth is drawn in with the Stampin' Up! Journaling Marker. The handle is attached with brads.
If you do not have the Big Shot or the Fancy Box Die, here are measurements to make a bag.
You will need a 5"x 11" piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Score horizontally at 2-1/4", 5-1/4", 7-1/2" and 10-1/2".
Score Vertically at 1-1/2".
Cut out and discard the smallest corner.
Cut the score marks up to the 1-1/2" score mark for the bottom of the box.
Fold in and adhere.

Reindeer Poop!
This is just too cute! It reads,
"You've been Naughty,
so here's the scoop,
All you get is
Reindeer Poop!"
It is filled with Raisinettes.

  1. Hi Micky,

    That is so cute!!! I may have to borrow that idea next year. My stamptuary is smoking for all the work I did this weekend. I need a break. See you at the next Craft Pots.
