Bah Humbug challenge 22

The challenge at Bah Humbug this week is 'surprise, surprise' - we could either surprise them with a design of our own choice or produce something with a hidden surprise.  While I was thinking this over and trying to decide what to do I remembered that when my friend Anne  and I met up for a coffee earlier this year she showed me something which she had made last Christmas and I thought this would be just the thing.  At the time I found the image for the face online somewhere but afraid I can't remember where.  I worked out the measurements for the wrapper by measuring the bar of chocolate - yes the surprise is a sweet treat inside this snowman.  At least there was a bar inside when I took the picture Lol!!  I then made the image the right size to fit using My Craft Studio and just glued the wrapper around the bar.  The little hat was made from a scrap of fleece fabric which I just happened to have around (I managed to find it too which is a surprise in itself!!).  I hope you like it and it was a change from making cards.


  1. love it what a inventive idea - I'm sure you will be in with a chance in this challenge best wishes Lesley x

  2. What a great idea, just right for all those little kids and big kids alike. I'll have to remember this one.

  3. What a great idea Val - and just how long did the bar of chocolate last in the snowman????? lol

  4. Great idea , he's so cute. The chocolate wouldn't last long if I had it. Hugs x ChrisB

  7. Oh WOW Val!
    I love this idea for a Xmassy chocolate wrap and your addition of a fleecy hat is absolute genius! Might HAVE to make some of these as an alternative to the 'poo bags' I made last Christmas. Don't want everyone to get bored with the same thing every year lol! Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
