Remember all those Snowmen?

Well . . . here's the finished project!

These are packets of "Snowman Soup" that I gave out during our Open House last Saturday. Thanks to everyone who stopped by!

What I used:

Frosted Cobalt Cardstock by Prism
Majestic Purple Light Cardstock by Prism
Brilliant White Cardstock by Prism
Snowman Stamp by Great Impressions
Snowflake Stamp by Inkadinkado
Eggplant Adirondack Ink
Cool Peri Adirondack Ink
Mega Circle Punch
Giga Scalloped Circle Punch
Hot Cocoa
Candy Cane
Poem printed out from computer (see below for poem)

How to:

Cut Frosted Cobalt cardstock to 4.25" x 11"
Randomly stamp Snowflake with Cool Peri Adirondack ink
Score at 5.25", 5.5", and 5.75"

Cut Majestic Purple cardstock to 4.25" x 2.75"
Randomly stamp Snowflake with Cool Peri Ink
Fold in half

Stamp Snowmen with Eggplant Adirondack Ink on Brilliant White
Punch out using Mega Circle Punch (To do this, turn the punch around to line up the snowmen within the circle.)
Punch out Giga Scalloped Circle from Majestic Purple cardstock

Adhere Snowmen to purple scalloped circle.
Fold the Frosted Cobalt cardstock on the score lines to make a "w"
Adhere Snowmen to the Frosted Cobalt cardstock. . . kinda towards the bottom.
On the inside of the Cobalt stock, using a small piece of two-sided tape, adhere Hot Chocolate packet. Then, adhere the candy cane on the Hot Chocolate Packet.
Place the snowflake stamped piece of cardstock over the top of the cobalt cardstock and staple each side.

Adhere poem to the front and top it off with ribbon. There . . .all done! Hope you enjoy making your very own packets of Snowman Soup!

Here's the poem:

The weather's getting chilly
So listen, here's the scoop.
To warm up nice and quickly,
Have some Snowman Soup!

Just add hot water to the mix,
and stir it with a Peppermint Stick.
Sit back, relax, and sip it slow,
That should do the trick!
