Do you want to build a snowman?

We've got some great gift and card ideas for you made with the new "Melting For You" Product!

For a cute and easy gift make some white playdough for your "snowman" gift.  If you want to really add a little magic, you can mix in some white glitter.  Here is our favorite playdough recipe:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tsp. cream of tarter
  • 1/3 cup salt
  • 1 TBS vegetable oil
  • optional: food coloring
  • optional:  peppermint oil or other flavoring
Combine all the dry ingredients in a medium size saucepan and mix.  Add the water and oil (and peppermint oil if you wanted to add that).  Turn the stove on medium/low and stir.  It's really lumpy at first.  Keep stirring until it gets thick.  Make sure you scrape the bottom of the pan as you stir.   As soon as the dough doesn't look "wet" anymore, take it off the burner.  Dump the dough out on wax paper or plastic wrap and let it cool down.  Come back about 30 minutes later and knead the dough for a few minutes until it feels smooth.  You can add  food coloring if you want at this point.  Make sure you store it in an air-proof container!

For your gift, you can either put the "snowman" dough in a baggy or a jar.  Cut your "snowman" pieces out of the "Melting For You" Product and attach to your gift w/ a little baggy.  

If you don't want to give playdough, think about giving the snowman pieces on a darling card because really... who doesn't want to build a snowman?  And this snowman won't make you wet, messy, or cold!

As you can see from all the photos, there are many ways to go about making your snowmen cards.
