TJ Blogstravaganza - Snowman Soup

Another quick and easy project - using up those $1 boxes I "had to have" from Michael's....I filled my test tubes with a packet of hot cocoa and a few marshmallows, then tied on my Alpine Ribbon. If your looking for Test Tubes or similar packaging- you can find them here. I will be working on some new templates for these tubes - so be sure to check back! I made an insert for the inside out of Chocolate Chip card stock, punched two 1" circles to hold my test tubes, and two 1/4" circles to hold my candy canes. (I had to punch the 1/4" circle twice in one spot, slightly overlapping so that the hole would be wide enough.


I stamped my snowflakes from Snow Burst using the Triple Dimension Technique (I stamped off twice before actually stamping - trying to keep a lighter shade of ink). The sentiment is from Inky Antics and reads:




Snowman Soup

So, 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, sip it slow
It's sure to do the trick!

Wishing you all a Blessed Christmas!
