Snowman Soup

I wasn’t sure if I would put together any packs of Snowman Soup this year, but the success of my Halloween Brew made me think, why not!
snowman soup packagingThe design for the packet insert is almost the same as the one I made in 2010  using digi kit, which sadly now seems to have been retired. The font I used is 2peas Typo.
All I have done is print of the design and then mat and layer it on some PaperCellar snow design card to fit my cello bags, that I found in Home Bargains for a bargain 89p for 50 bags.
In the bags I have put a packet of hot chocolate, a candy cane and a marshmallow Christmas pole.  I used to make my own little packets of mini marshmallows to sprinkle on the top of the hot chocolate, but I think using pre-packed marshmallows is more hygienic, leaving the recipient to either dip or break up the marshmallow as they choose. However at the last minute I decided to add a mini gingerbread man from a pack from M & S (99p for 12),  which I sealed in a small cello bag with my vacuum sealer and a couple of starlight mints, again left over from other projects …. but all with a couple of months on the sell by/use by dates
