Snowman Soup and a mini preview

It was Zac's last day at nursery until the new year today and I made some cute gifts for his teachers, some snowman soup. Here is one of them all wrapped up and ready:

I found the mugs in the supermarket, you can't really see them but they're nice and big and have shoes and flowers and handbags on them! I popped some hot chocolate sachets, candy canes, a packet of mini marshmallows and a bar of chocolate inside. I made the packaging using Pool Party, Whiser White and Tempting Turquoise card and DSP.  To make the gift tag I simply stamped the snowman from Tags Til Christmas.

Here it is with the matching card:

I used the Button Buddies stamps set and brights buttons along with a sentiment from Delightful Dozen and finished with some Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon. Have you spotted the new product yet? See the scalloped circle punched shape? It's a new larger punch and you'll be able to get your mitts on it in January with the launch of the new Spring Mini catalogue!!!

Here are all the gifts together:

To wrap them up I used an A4 gripseal bag (none SU) and tied together with the Pool Party ribbon and some white organza ribbon. I also made some tags to match the cards with the snowman soup poem inside:

And the inside with the poem:

I printed it out on the PC and used some retired silver elastic thread to attach it to the bag. Finally, just cos I love the pic, here's Zac dressed as Rudolph, just before he went on stage at his first school play:

Hopefully I'll get chance to blog again tomorrow as I have another cheeky look at some projects made using other new products from the upcoming Spring Mini!!
