I've had a lot of traffic on this one so I'm adding some details to the original post:
I cut out a scrap of Basic Black on one segment of the Fancy Favour Die to make the top hat and the brim is a rectangle of scrap Basic Black CS as well. The eyes are punched with my Crop-O-Dile and the nose was cut from a scrap of Ice Cream Parlour DSP from last year's Sale-A-Bration. I've had a lot of people ask me about the blushing cheeks and all I did was take a sponge dauber with Blushing Bride ink and very very softly rub the ink on with a small, circular motion of my wrist.
I have used non SU wire for the holder by punching two tiny circles with my handheld 1/16" punch, running the wire through on both sides and twisting it back around itself. The finishing touch was a Sizzlit Snowflakes #2 die cut that is attached with a little piece of a Dimensional and topped with a pretty Basic Pearl.
You can't see the tag in the photo but it is stamped with one of the Four Frames stamps and I have written 'Snowman Soup' in cute little letters. I took this photo before I filled it, but in case you were wondering, my recipe is below:
1 Packet Hot Cocoa (I use Land O Lakes)
2 Mini Candy Canes
1 Lindor Peppermint Truffle
1 Small Handful of Mini Marshmallows
Not included in box is 1 1/2 boiling cups of either Milk or Water.
Mix all ingredients except marshmallows together until dissolved, then add marshmallows to garnish and enjoy!
PS This will probably be my only post for this weekend unless I magically get some time between heats and finals at the Christmas Cracker meet this weekend, sorry!
