Teacher Gifts = Snowman Soup!




First of all, I have to say I would not have been able to make these without Nicole Heady's tutorial from Papertrey Ink. You can visit her blog here - I am in LOVE with her products! I had so much fun making these! What I love best is the poem inside the lids -

When the weather outside is frightful,
Snowman Soup can be delightful.
May it warm your spirit and your soul.
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

When you feel a chill or 'burrrrr',
Use the peppermint stick to stir.
Add hot water and sip it slow.
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Each of my girls teachers are getting a snowman mug w/ hershey kiss surprises in the bottom and a canister of snowman soup! I hope they like them! (Click on the images to see more of the detail.)

Oh, and the little tag you see on the front says "Just add 6oz water, stir, sip & enjoy!" I love that part too! I also outlined the edges of the white tag with the Zig painty pen.

Inside each canister is a serving of milk hot chocolate, marshmellows & a peppermint stick - YUM!!!

Happy Holidays!
