Cutting a Recycled Soda Can using the Big Shot, creating an Aluminum Snowflake

Snowman Soup, Fabric Top Note Die

I recently held a workshop and made 12 packets of Snowman Soup as gifts for my guests.  What is Snowman Soup you ask?  It is a fun recipe using a packet of hot chocolate, mini marshmallows (they are in the packet of hot chocolate) and a peppermint candy cane as a stir stick.  The recipe is at the end of this post.

One of the best things I like about the Big Shot and coordinating dies is that you can cut fabric.  I've had this pretty circle fabric in my stash for awhile.  I originally purchased this fabric because I saw some of Stampin' Up!'s 48+ colors! (More Mustard, Real Red, Ballet Blue, So Saffron, Old Olive, Basic Black...  Ok, you get the point. Stampin' Up! colors are everywhere!)

I cut a piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" white card stock and a piece of the circle fabric to match.  I applied Stampin' Up! Anywhere Glue Stick to the card stock, laid the fabric on top, then ran it through my Big Shot using the Top Note die. After filling the cello bag with the packet of hot chocolate, candy cane and recipe, I folded the Top Note in half, put it on top of the bag and tied a ribbon around it.  Very simple.
