Christmas Decorated bowls and mugs, Designer heavy weight Christmas cardstock, I used Making Memories glitter card, lots of chocolate, sweets, candy canes and Hot chocolate drink powder. Some Christmas patterned cellophane, lots of tissue paper, ribbon and chenille pipe cleaners.
Make a box base with the card stock and cut a piece of thick card for the inside to help support the weight of the china. Place the bowl and mug with tissue between for protection. Fill with the goodies and wrap in the cellophane gathering it up and tie the top off with ribbon.
Print off a chocolate poem and attach to the inside of the tag. Attach the tag with a chenille pipe cleaner. Easy, effective and yummy :-)
Poems from the internet are as follows:
If your day is cold and gloomy
And you have no place to go
Snuggle up with treats
Nibble on these sweets
And your day will start to glow
(that one's by Me!!)
Was told you've been real good this year.
Always glad to hear it
With freezing weather drawing near,
you'll need to warm the spirit.
So here's a little snowman soup
complete with stirring stick.
Add hot water, sip it slow.
It's sure to do the trick
i'm sending your way,
for you to sip and enjoy,
on some cold lonely day.
As you sip this cocoa,
it's warmth will warm your heart.
Just like our friendship warmed mine,
right from the very start.
When the weather outside is frightful,
snowman soup can be delightful.
May it warm your spirit and your soul.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
use the peppermint stick to stir.
Add hot water and sip it slow.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
