Snow Fun

Good Wednesday morning! I am so excited to announce that I will be on the Cooking With Cricut Design Team! Yay! It is such a pleasure to be a part of this wonderful team and all the talented ladies on it.

This week's challenge over at Cooking With Cricut is to make a project with a Snow Fun Theme. Whenever my family plays out in the snow, we love to warm up by having some Snowman Soup, AKA hot chocolate. :)

The tag reads:

Snowman Soup
When the weather outside is frightful,
Snowman Soup can be delightful.
May it warm your spirit and your soul.
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

When you feel a chill or 'brrrr',
Use the peppermint stick to stir.
Add hot water and sip it slow.
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

The tag, a packet of hot chocolate, mini marshmallows, chocolate chips and a candy cane go inside the bag. How cute would these be to give as little gifts!

Now, let's get onto the specifics of the bag :) I bought a colored lunch bag for my project, but you could also just as easily use a regular brown lunch bag. I cut about an inch or so off of the top of the bag to make it 9" long. I made a little mat for the front of the bag to put the snowman on and decorated that and then attached it to the bag with just my atg adhesive. The snowman was cut using Doodlecharms cricut cartridge at 3". I used a border punch on the top of the bag and then folded over, punched some holes and ran some ribbon through and tied a bow.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and look at my project! I can't wait to see what you guys come up with for the challenge. Head on over to Cooking with Cricut and join in on the fun! I hope you have a great crafty day!!
