Creating Christmas {Don’t Just Pin, CREATE!} Day 5 With Brown Paper Packages

Hello everyone!  I’m Kierste, the girl behind {brown paper packages}, and I’m delighted to be here!  I’m so excited to share with you one of my favorite gift ideas– for neighbors, friends, teachers–it’s always a huge hit.
So…what do you get when you combine hot cocoa, candy canes, marshmallows, and a couple Hershey kisses? {snowman soup}

I love how easy these darling gifts are to make–aren’t they so fun? ITEMS YOU NEED:
  • hot cocoa mix (you can use homemade, or individual packets)
  • candy canes
  • mini marshmallows
  • hershey kisses (I like the peppermint ones!)
  • snowman soup poem/tag

DIRECTIONS: For each person, place a hot cocoa packet (if you’re using homemade, you could package it for an individual, or a larger amount in a cute jar, etc. for the whole family), candy cane, a handful of marshmallows, and a couple of Hershey kisses in a cute container or bag. I like using paper lunch sacks or clear treat bags. Print off the label on white card stock, and cut it out. Mat on desired card stock (I used cream and brown), then distress all the edges. Tie on label with a cute ribbon, and you’re set to give!

  Thanks so much for having me, Diana–it was so fun! I hope you will all stop by {brown paper packages} to say hello–I’d love to have you!
