Lovely little find

So I was standing in the line at the grocery store and the person in front of me was taking an awfully loooonnnggg time.  I quickly realized though that the delay was for my benefit because my mind went into crafty over-drive when I spied this ....

(I bought 3 and I'm not even a gum chewer)

When I got them home I unwrapped them.  Can you tell yet why I was so excited? 
This container, with the labels off of course, makes the perfect snowman.  

I still had socks and everything else left over from my last snowman craft.  so I was all set to start crafting.
And, to make it even better, I knew I could turn then into little Valentine's gifts, too and so I did.

So, just like the sock snowmen from a few weeks ago, I just cut up socks for the hat and scarf.  Then I glued on some buttons for the eyes.  The nose is the end of a BBQ stick painted orange.

Easy, right?!
