Cute Lil Snowman Tag

This cute lil snowman tag resulted from me not getting products that I wanted. Recently I participated in a Christmas tag swap. I knew the layout and the paper that I wanted to use, from the Let It Snow suite on pages 18-21 of the Holiday 2019 catalog. I realized I did not order the stamp set, nor the punch that would have made the cutest little ol tag. I should have ordered the Snowman Season stamp set and the snowman builder punch. Alack alas, I did not. So I punted. I used several punches to create the snowman base. and I fussy cut (handout) all 20 carrot noses. And I couldn't find my black rhinestones to use for the coal face pieces. So I colored them with the black Stampin' Blends. Since I used a tag topper punch for the scalloped edge, and they punch out a hole for ribbon, I had to back the hole with a 1/2" circle punch, in Pool Party, so I could attach a ribbon on the front with a glue dot. The end result is cute. It is just not what I pictured in my

Sweet Hot Treat!

Sweet and simple gift for Fall. I added higher end hot cocoa. I put about a dozen? marshmallows in our 2x8 treat tube cello bags and folded it in half and sealed it. I am not sure why I didn't think of this sooner, like years ago, but I just used one of our standard card cello envelopes for the treats. I always have several packages of them lying around my stamp room, as I use them for my card exchange cards when I swap cards.  I made 16 of the toppers in about an hour. I think it took more time to put the marshmallows in the cello bags. Those little devils were wanting to pop all over the place.  Supplies Stamps : Itty Bitty Christmas 150513 $22.00, Tiny Keepsakes 150460 $20.00 Inks : Black Papers : Cherry Cobbler cardstock 119685 $8.75, Mossy Meadow Cardstock 133676 $8.75, Whisper White Cardstock 100730 $9.75, Silver Foil Sheets 132178 $5.00 Accessories : Cup of Christmas dies 150491 $23.00, Cherry Cobbler Diagonal Stripe Ribbon 150439 $7.50, Sprig punch 1480
