Soup, anyone?

Hello out there!
It's very quiet in blogland today - hope that means you are all finishing up some shopping, baking, wrapping, etc.!
I'm getting closer (thank heavens for on-line shopping!)...

I had an order this week for something very quick for some staff mailboxes.
Of course, being iced in, I didn't have 30 matching anythings to hold items.
After a bit of thought, here is what I came up with!
The ingredients.....
30 somewhat matched packages of Snowman Soup...
The front...


The back...








Using envelopes, I sealed them, cut off one end with a scallopped cutter blade, and used up a LOT of Christmas scraps!
The cute little snowman is by Stampendous, and I reach for him a lot!
Coloring is with Tombows and a glitter pen.
The little 'stir sticks' came from our Aldi store.
The rest is computer generated!
I can't remember where I got either saying.
The one ON the inside came from someplace on SCS, I believe.
If it is your design, let me know, and I will certainly give you the credit
and the thanks for a great idea!!!



All righty, thanks for stopping by! I'm off to bake some cookies!


Hugs and smiles - Patti J.

Very nice - talk about making a purse out of a sows ear - (or do you remember that analogy) this is perfect. I too love the snowman - he didn't get to visit my house this year.

These are amazing! WOW, I've never made 30 of anything! After making these, I don't think I could even look at any more snowman soup! LOL You did an awesome job on these. Great work! Best, Curt
