Ever wonder why I love Jiffy Pop so much?

No? Okay then this is not the post for you. You may think it has something to do with my most favorite Halloween creation eva…..
but I actually made this costume BECAUSE….this is about Christmas and for Christmas
we use Jiffy Pop….a lot! 
Like every Christmas one of the kids teachers or crossing guard or babysitter is going to get one of these babies…..
You used to be able to remove the Jiffy Pop cover and then pop the fun foam face (say that 10 times….really fast!) under the metal lip. But now it has some fancy pull tab so we have to just tape the face onto the Jiffy Pop. We were going to glue it down but realized you won't have access to the tab if you do that so tape it is! We did not use fun foam for this project this year because frankly, I am way behind and this was a train wreck trig to find the Jiffy Pop. Target used to sell it and I'd pick up boat loads of it when I saw it but not this year. So I had to go to the Jiffy pop website and call around to where they "might" sell it! Luckily a Shop N' Save near us carries it so we made these a little last minute! But Fun Foam looks much better and is more durable if you are going to be sending these in the mail. 

I still love how these turn out every year!

Which do you like better…the snowman or the gingerbread face?

Always being renewed,
