How can I run Script 2 by it's self? Script 1 is a cmd file, but what do I need to delclare in Script 2 to make it a valid script?

Script 1 pulls out all the snapshots (their ID) for a volume to a text file (snaps.txt)
aws ec2 describe-snapshots --filters Name=volume-id,Values=vol-123456 --query Snapshots[*].{ID:SnapshotId} --output text >c:\temp\snaps.txt

Script 2 should go through the text file snaps.txt and tag all the snapshots.
for /F %i in (c:\temp\snaps.txt) do aws ec2 create-tags --resources %i --tags Key=Environment,Value=ABC123

I ran the file snapscript01.cmd to create the list of snapshots in a text file which worked. Awesome. What type of file do I need to run through that output file snaps.txt so it can loop it? I created a cmd and bat with just the command text and it didn't work. No error. I don't want to touch the existing backup script. I want a new script.
