Teacher Gifts - Snowman Soup

Hi All, happy Tuesday!

I can't believe we are only 2 days away from Christmas! I haven't even finished wrapping all my gifts yet. I did just hit the grocery store this morning, before the all the crowds. And of course I forgot something so now I'll have to head back. Ahhh, maybe later.

I wanted to share the teacher gifts I made for my son's Kindergarten teachers this year. I found this idea on Rach's blog, Papercrafts by Rach. She had the cutest poem for snowman soup. I found these tins at SpecialtyBottle.com. I filled them with hot cocoa, Hershey Kisses, and candy canes.

The tin has been wrapped with Ski Slope DSP. I added ribbon and felt snowflakes as accents along with a JOY ornament for his teachers to keep. The top image is a penguin stamp from Firecracker Designs colored with ink re-fills and an aquapainter. I used my Coluzzle and circle nesties to make the tag for the lid.

I made this card to go with the gifts. The image is a new design from Whimsy Stamps and will be available for purchase on January 1st. This is our Whimsy Animals Seal! The papers are Blue Bayou, Baja Breeze, and Ski Slope DSP. I added grosgrain ribbon, a felt snowflake and button, a clip and a tag for accents. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps as well, available January 1st.

I colored this little guy with a black marker and an aquapainter. Then added some white gel pen accents. He is framed in with a scalloped circle Nestabilities. I also added some white gel pen accents around the card.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you're all ready for your holiday festivities! Have a wonderful and safe holiday season!

Happy Stamping! and Happy Holidays! :)

Hi Denise, I was a little late in making my submission for the Monthly design call. I was wondering if I could still do it. I've made a blog post as well as SCS gallery upload.
