CHRISTMAS BAG TOPPERS & SUCH

Magic Snowflakes
This is sized to go on the baseball card protection sleeve little bags. I put white confetti, Mylar snowflakes, and some white glitter in the bag....
Here is the verse:
We looked out our window and to our surprise,
there were shiny tiny snowflakes dancing before our eyes.
My sis and I got our coats and bundled up tight,
then we ran outside right into the night.
We stood there in awe wondering what to do
as the amount of snow just grew and grew.
We realized the magic right before our eyes,
each snowflake that fell was a wish from the skies.
We've gathered some snowflakes just for you,
sprinkle them around and all of your wishes will come true.

Circus Mix
1 package (10.5 ounces) marshmallow
circus peanuts
1 package (10 ounces) jelly beans
1 package (5.3 ounces) animal crackers
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 8 cups mix
* I put 1 cup of mix into a baggie. Then used a white lunch-size paper bag, attached a gift-label with a picture of Santa that said "North Pole Circus Mix" and decorated with ribbon.

Snowman Repair Kit
In a small zip lock bag I put a black plastic hat, 2 googly eyes, 3 buttons, a strip of fabric, a couple of small twigs, a twig that I had dipped in orange paint, and some tiny paper snowflakes. And here is the poem that I am attaching .. Hope you enjoy my version.
Snowman Repair Kit
Being outside all day and night,
Can make me look a dreadful sight.
I melt, I break, I lose some parts,
Which tends to break some people's hearts,
So here's a repair kit just for you
To make your snowman look brand new!

Snowman Kit
        Include in a baggie.....2 charcoals/buttons (for eyes), plastic or wood carrot for nose, and a cute pipe and scarf if you like. Receiver can use this kit to make a snowman--unless living in the south. Put on the card with the poem, assembly required
Here is poem to go with kit:
There is nothing like a snowman
To make a person smile.
His eyes of coal, his carrot nose,
His pipe with so much style.
We all have special memories
Of fun in the snow and slush
And this will be renewed
With a little help from us!

Bag Topper for Reindeer Cookie
This would be good for a bag topper not like the magic reindeer food....but maybe for a special cookie for the reindeer to be left with Santa's snack.

My child feeds the reindeer
Late on Christmas Eve
Some very special reindeer food
Because she does believe
That Santa's not the only one
Who needs a midnight snack.
She wants to fill their tummies
So next year they'll bring him back!

Holiday Cutups
(same idea for Snowman Seeds)
I printed the cards on card stock.  Laminated them.  Cut them out and folded them with a cookie cutter in a baggie attached.

Have a Jelly Bean Christmas
by Faye Hayes and April McNew
    Red is for Santa's Suit.
  Black is for his shiny boots
    Green is for the Christmas Tree with an angel on top for all to see,
White is for his beard so white as white as the snow on Christmas night,
Rosy are his cheeks so pink, He'll be here and gone in a wink.
Blue is for his twinkling eyes And the dark blue of the Christmas sky
Yellow is for the Christmas Star Shining near and shining far.

Legend of the Snowman Angel
Just as every snowflake is unique,
so is every snowman
Each carefully placed handful of snow,
a special scarf,
maybe even a loving teddy all help
to bring our snowman to life,
creating special memories
of time spent together
Eventually the snowman will melt
with the warmth of the sun, but his
memory will continue to live on.
For with every snowman you've built
that's melted away, you've
added a snowangel to heaven that day
Attach to a little snowman pin

Coal
I hear you've been naughty, And Santa is miffed. He doesn't know what to do with your gift. To keep it or sell it, Or give it away He's been fretting and stomping all through the day.
He now has a headache, he now has a cold He didn't expect this, Or so I've been told. He left you this message, He left you this gift He's blaming you, For causing this rift.
His message to you, until you redeem your soul, All you get this year, is a big lump of coal.
Paulette, 1998
