I knew it was gonna be a great idea when I read about it :D.........thanks for posting the picture. I need to pick up some whisks tomorrow!

I did a craft show in Nov. and my mom came up with this cute idea of using the whisk and putting packs of Hershey kiss-a-bles inside. We put the same saying on them too. They sold like hot cakes! We only priced them at $2.50, got the whisks at the dollar store. I think we had about 15 of them and sold out completely.

Found this recipe for REAL snowman soup..........I think I will "taste test" before I actually make it up for little gift bags.........

If anyone had made it, would love a critique.......

mixing bowl and add 1 cup boiling water. Stir until smooth.

I wish I had thought of that idea or heard about it before I went out and bought the tins. Although I think the tins of candy that I put together came out well. Here is the link if you would lie to see one of the tins with the cello , ribbon and tag. http://itsallaboutthejourney.typepad....html#comments Hope that link works.

The link worked, and I think those are adorable. I love the tins inside the cello bag!

I read this twice (yes, twice), and kept thinking, why would you put candy in a bottle of Wisk? I finally realized it was a different wisk... (I guess I'm tired).


What a cute idea!

I made a bunch last year as well and they were a big hit! And very inexpensive.

jessiepepper 12-10-2006 08:16 AM

I too love the wisks, I found an example on this site a month ago. I went to the dollar store and got a dozenn wisks and started!! They look great.
On mine I put "Wisk-ing you a merry kiss-mas!" I think that they are just the cutest thing ever!! Can't wait to give them away!

I'd love to hear some of your one-liners! I'm making things for the ladies at my office and DH's so any ideas are appreciated!

Mary JB 12-10-2006 11:05 AM

Great Idea! Where did you get the heavy clear plastic or is that regular Plastic Wrap? I was looking for something little to do for my sister-in-laws and this might just fit the bill!

sn0216 12-10-2006 12:13 PM

I am going to do this as toppers for presents, thanks for the idea

corvette85lady 12-10-2006 12:25 PM

What a cute idea! Thanks.

disneygirl 12-10-2006 12:31 PM

Thanks DeniseH for sharing that link. I've been making candles for family members and found a great poem there for Christmas candles! Thanks again!

friendly63 12-10-2006 12:54 PM

Mary JB 12-10-2006 02:37 PM

Sorry for bumping this again but I noticed that the whisk's seem to be in a cello bag. Are those freezer bags like you freeze you strawberries in? I don't think that regular plastic wrap would look as good. If there is another source for these bags, please let me know. Thanks a bunch

They are actually in cellophane gift bags...Stampin' Up! sells them in five sizes. I am sure there are other sources, but that's where I got mine. :)

cuccicoo1002 12-13-2006 09:52 AM

What a great idea...those whisks! Too adorable, thanks for sharing...

I may just have to stop by the dollar store... (ohhh, DH said we need to get a whisk, I think I'll make one for his stocking, hee hee hee :))

happystamper05 12-13-2006 11:38 AM

Love this idea! Thanks Denise for sharing it and to LeeAnn for the visual!
Me thinks a stop to the dollar store tonight is in order....

Hugs,
Renee

Runamok 12-13-2006 11:46 AM

such a cute idea! I will realy HAVE to do this one--so cute and inexpensive!

Mary JB 12-13-2006 03:08 PM

I went around to two or three dollar stores and found some whisks at Dollar General. As these were only a one dollar a piece some of the slots were bigger than others and the candy (Hershey Kisses ) kept falling out. This was quite frustrating! I solved the problem by layering the kisses on scotch tape. Two or three sets and then you could fill in with the loose ones. I am sure if you pay more for your whisk you probably won't have this problem.

terry serman 12-13-2006 03:12 PM

THey have a set of 3 whisks for $2.99 at our Target. Small, Med., Large. The small one is really cute, the medium perfect, and the kisses pop out of the large one but if you're careful, and quickly wrap it in the cello bag, it all stays together. Thanks for this cute idea.
