Snowman Soup!

Have you all heard of Snowman Soup? It's another item I'm working on for the craft fair. It's a packet of hot chocolate, a small bag of mini marshmallows, a candy cane, plus a cute poem about the Snowman Soup. It's an idea that my friend Jana told me about, and it's been done on many Internet and blogging sites. Nichole Heady has a super cute version, but using tins and repackaging the hot chocolate wouldn't be cost effective for the craft fair in which I'm hoping to participate. So, this is my version for the craft fair.


This is the shopping bag from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More (TBBM) cut on my Cricut at the largest size. The packet of hot chocolate has to go in on its side in the shopping bag, but the handles on the bag sure are cute!


This is the inch bag at the largest size. It is also cut on my Cricut using TBBM. In this one, the packet of hot chocolate can go in vertically.

Here they are together. I definitely like both versions, and I will continue making both versions for the craft fair. I made the "Snowman Soup" round tags in Word Art, the snowman is clip art, and I cut them out with my Coluzzle. I used my Cropadile to punch the holes in the tags and in the inch bag. I don't have the candy canes or the mini marshmallows yet, and my oldest daughter is finishing up an original poem for the gifts. The paper I used is from the DCWV Glitter Christmas Stack. So, what do you think? I think the little kids will love these for siblings, parents, and teachers. Well, at least I'm hoping they like them!

Thanks for stopping by!

Those look fab! When I made them (many years ago at a SU night) we just did a topper with a plastic bag but there was a poem that went with it all, Hmmm, can't remember it off the top of my head though!
great job, they should sell very well :)
