The Queen of Hearts
The front panel of the three-fold, eight-panel, die-cut leaflet features red and green text of an old nursery rhyme (The Queen Of Hearts, She Made Some Tarts….). A red, green, black and yellow drawing of a queen of hearts has her holding a platter of tarts in her right hand. The cuffs of her robe feature red hearts on a white background, with similar trim also at the bottom of the robe (bottom of the panel). The back panel of the leaflet features the same nursery rhyme and a mirror reflection of the drawing on the front panel. Folded open one time provides a two-panel promotion for Snowdrift, For Making Cake, Biscuit And Pastry And For Wholesome Frying. It indicates that Snowdrift is made by Wesson Oil. Four additional panels offer recipes that use Snowdrift to make cake, biscuit and pie crust, and for wholesome frying.
