Easy Simple Bag - o - Candy Gifts

I love making these little gifts - they make a good stocking stuffer, are great for kids or co-workers, for a holiday boutique or fundraiser; and they are Easy! Shown above are ones I did last year -- Snowman Kisses and a Rudolph Repair Kit. The bag toppers are super easy using the Top Note die and my Big Shot!
Here's the "recipe" for two of my Favorites: Snowman Soup and Magic Reindeer Food

Snowman Soup --
Warm the hearts of good little boys and girls with a packet of Snowman Soup! Take a packet of hot chocolate, chocolate kiss, marshmallows and candy cane, package in a holiday-themed goody bag, then add a gift tag for a cheery winter gift. Easy enough for children to make, Snowman Soup is perfect for a stocking stuffer, office gifts, Secret Santa presents or 12 Days of Christmas gifts.
This works great as shown, options instead of bagging it might be to decorate a plain mug with some fabulous Rub-Ons from Stampin' Up! They have a great variety of themes and with 2-4 sheets each depending on the pack, you could make a few or a fa-la-la-la-lot!

Assemble in a gift bag, gift mug or small zipper food storage bag:1 individual packet hot chocolate mix 2-3 chocolate kiss candies 10-15 mini-marshmallows small candy cane

Print in a fun font onto card stock and cut out using the Big Shot and Top Note Die and create bag topper, or hand-write this poem and attach to gift:
Snowman Soup
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!

Magic Reindeer Food:
Many families leave cookies and milk for Santa, but what about his reindeer? Sprinkled on the lawn on Christmas Eve, Magic Reindeer Food leaves a glittering path--and a sweet snack--for Rudolph and friends. Perfect for the little ones to help with! An inexpensive stocking stuffer, Magic Reindeer Food makes a great classroom or Secret Santa gift. Package this simple recipe in zipper food storage bags or treat bags, and add a bag topper.
In a small zipper food storage bag or empty shaker container, mix:1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/4 cup sugar
Two Tablespoons red or green sugar crystals (as used for cake decorating)
Print in a fun font onto card stock and cut out using the Big Shot and Top Note Die and create bag topper, or hand-write this poem and attach to gift:
Magic Reindeer Food
Be sure to take this magic food and sprinkle on the lawn,
On Christmas, Santa's reindeer travel miles before the dawn.
The smell of oats and glitter path will guide them on their way
And you'll wake up to Santa's gifts next morn on Christmas Day!
