Winter/Christmas Blog Hop!

Welcome to my blog! Thank you for hopping along on this wonderful Winter/Christmas Blog Hop. You should've arrived here from Brandi's amazing blog Scuba Scrapper Brandi. I hope you've been enjoying all the wonderful projects along the hop. And, you're nearing the end...only one more stop after this one.

If you've been to my blog before, then you're probably familiar with the creations I've been making with the round box from Sweet Tooth Boxes. First it was the designer pumpkins...and then the angry birds. Well, I'm still having fun with that box...so, I'm using it again.

My project for the blog hop is a Snowman Gift Box!


The snowman is made using the ice cream sundae cut from the cricut cartridge - Sweet Tooth Boxes (cut at 11.71"). The nose is a triangle from George and Basic Shapes (GBS), rolled to form the cone shape. The hat is 2 circles and a rectangle strip, cut from GBS...and then once I assembled the hat, I scrunched it up to look a little worn. The eyes are 2 small circles from GBS. The flowers and flourish are from the Art Philosophy cartridge (3" & 4" flowers).


Finish up with some ribbon, twine and some bling and you've got a cute little snowman gift box! I'm going to use them to wrap gift cards in.



Thanks for stopping by on the hop!

Your last stop on the Winter/Christmas blog hop is to see Liz and her awesome blog at Liz's Lavendar and Roses!
