I found this cute snowman mug at Michael’s the other day and I just had to get it! I knew it would be perfect for a Snowman Soup gift set. So I packaged up the hot cocoa, marshmallows, and cinnamon sticks inside the mug and tied it up with some red curling ribbon. I used the snowman from Home Sweet Home and one of the sentiments from the Tag Treats set to create the tag. The image is colored with Copics and highlighted with Stardust gelly roll pen. Since I know I’ll be giving this as a gift, I wanted to create a matching card to go with it. I decided to try the medallion technique I showed you yesterday with my Fiskars threading water punch. I found that starting with a 3″ square works best for this specific punch. Check out the medallion that Tosh created with one of her Martha Stewart border punches! It’s such a delicate and pretty look! I’d love to see what you all do with this concept and your border punches. Please send me a link if you decide to try it! That’s it for this quick and easy Christmas gift… really a no-brainer! Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you all have a wonderful day!
