Tubes - Day THREE

Welcome to the final day of our tube feature. Have you picked up your tubes in our online store? Of course if you make any, email me with photos or add them to our Gallery -- I'd love to showcase them here on the SRM Stickers Blog. We've decided to feature tubes regularly so the inspiration will keep coming! We have more fabulous tubes for you today...

by Tania:

The back of the tag holds the recipe for the hot cocoa and what to do with the Andes mints. I like to melt mine into a cup of hot cocoa. Each tube will hold two packets of store-bought hot cocoa mix, which is what these are fill with, BUT, here's my personal favorite homemade recipe that makes a ton in case someone is making these in bulk.

Recipe to make your own:

1 large box of instant dry milk
11oz powdered non-flavored coffee creamer
1 (16oz) container of Chocolate Nestle Quik
1 c. powdered sugar
Mix and store in airtight container.

Fill mug 1/2 full with mix, add hot water. Stir and enjoy. For an added treat, add 1 or 2 Andes mints to your hot cocoa. Bliss.

Gina created three very different tubes containing lemon drops, candies, and marshmallows;

by Amy:
Amy used mulling spices and cinnamon sticks for her "Thanksgiving" or "Fall" themed tubes. These would make a fun gift if you wrapped them in a mug as a gift.

I'll be back tomorrow with a quick post and a Thanksgiving project, then back again next week with a full week of stickers!

I was thinking hot cocoa would be great fun in those - and I guess it was a great idea. Cute ideas.
