The Gift of Warm Steamy Cocoa

091217-snowman-how-toProvide your own cup and hot milk, of course! This cute project was one of our Stamp Club projects this month. It’s a terrific twist on a project that’s been around for years and years. The top hat actually pulls off and the snowman is an envelope that holds a cocoa packet.

My friend and LovenStampfuls demonstrator, Mary Ellen Stites, shared this at a recent LovenStampfuls Shoebox Swap. Here’s how to make your own:

  1. 091216-snowman-backBegin by sealing a Whisper White Medium Envelope. Cut off about 1 ½” from the side, then crimp the remainder with the crimps running perpendicular to the cut.
  2. Fold a Big Shot Top Note so that it creates a brim for the “hat”, attach to non-crimped envelope piece of the envelope.
  3. For the marshmallows, cut two of the large scallop circles from Scallop Circle #2 die, and use a 1 ¾” Circle Punch to punch a hole for the Sweet Treat Cup. Attach to hat with Gold Cord.
  4. Decorate with punched circles, sponged rosy cheeks and a cardstock triangle nose.
