Meet Mr Snowman...I got this idea from Teri's beautiful Mr. Snowman, oh how I love snowmen...
Although I loved how she embellished hers, I had to take mine to a different level. You see, the recipients of these will be from ages 4-7, so....we all kinda know what will happen to Mr. Snowman, once the goodies are eaten up...yep...not that he'll melt away but...he will most likely be thrown away (eventually). So that is why I decided to try and keep it basic and yet cute. I so much wanted to emboss his hat, add some stickles, dew drops and maybe even a ribbon, but...those ideas slowly went to rest once I remembered the age level that'll be receiving these.
Just as Rudolph, Mr Snowman and everything about him was created by my Cricut. "Accent Essentials", "Plantin SchoolBook" and "Tags, Bags, Boxes & More" were all the cartridges used.
The little treats my daughter wanted to fill Mr. Snowman with, were treats we found at Paper Pleasing Ideas. These treats are great with Hot Chocolate however, based on experience, children will not wait for the Hot Chocolate, at least not in our home (lol). We made samples to test for ourselves and it was fairly simple and real yummy. Although the recipe calls for toothpicks (for dipping), I would not recommend that for 4 year olds. Just a safety precaution.
Because we wanted to display the treat within, we decided to create a "window" box. The treats can now be viewed from the back side.
Oops...I truly intended to keep it quick and short. Thanks for your patience and most of all, thanks for stopping in and being such a blessing. Hope you enjoyed your visit God Bless~Details:
