Have you heard of Snowman Soup?  I love giving bags of this cute holiday treat out during the run up to Christmas…you could also make this treat for party favors and any frosty gatherings…and with just 11 weeks until Christmas Eve it’s not too early to start making them…

I have given these treats away in a cello baggie with a topper before but this year I am handing them out in a cute Treat Bag…read on to find out all about it plus a link to the printable tutorial showing you how to make your own below along with my blog candy winner…

This bag is made from just one sheet of cardstock, a length of ribbon and whatever you use to decorate it, making it a perfect budget-stretcher which I love, especially around the holidays…my bag above is made using a sheet of Baha Breeze cardstock and is decorated using Candy Cane Specialty Designer Series Papers which you can find on pg pg 33 of the Holiday Mini Catalog

Because of my snowman soup theme I wanted to use a snowman stamp and so my tag features that adorable snowman that you can find in the co-ordinating stamp set A Cute Christmas that is on pg 32 of the Mini…I colored him using ink pads & a Blender Pen & punched him out using the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch which I layered onto my punched Scallop Circle…

I wanted to give him a bit of snowy sparkle and so I used my Two-Way Glue Pen to apply glue and sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter…my ribbon is Whisper White Tafetta and that gives a luxurious look without being too heavy.  Here is a side view of my finished bag to show you how neat it looks…

Goodie bags of Snowman Soup usually contain that cute Snowman Soup rhyme, a sachet of Cocoa mix, mini Marshmallows, yummy Chocolate and a Candy Stirring Stick…I love to use chocolate covered peppermint sticks as my stirring sticks that you can find online at stores such as Oriental Trading – they are individually wrapped and delicious…wrap it up in your cute bag and there you have one sweet treat

And here is that Snowman Soup rhyme just in case you haven’t seen it before:

Was told 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!

    So super cute! I just saw this, and had to sit down and make one. Do the oriental trading co. choc covered peppermint sticks fit inside the bag? I put a window in the front of mine so they could see what was inside it. Thanks so much for sharing the tutorial.
