Snowman Gift Box

 Hi Everyone!!  I am so excited to get a project done!  I was hoping to get lots of other Christmas projects done this week, but my little girl broke her finger at a Christmas bowling party.  My poor little baby!  She was so excited to go bowling for the first time.  She is a little sweetheart.  I have been so busy getting ready for Christmas, I really haven't had time to craft.  Today I am going to share another gift box with you.  Click HERE to get the template for this box.  I made this for the PK LFIF Challenge: Fabric Scraps.  I used light blue felt for the snowman scarf and a piece to tie the box closed.  I cut the felt first with pinking sheers.

I made this snowman from the Fiskars Cutting Templates (the orange ones).  I also used 3 black brads for the buttons.

 The sentiment is from Close to My Heart Christmas Scripts.  I originally stamped it on to the box and accidently smeared it so I cut a square and stamped it again.  I used my corner rounder on two of the corners.  I really liked how the corners look.  Then I took some white ink and inked the edges to make it look frosted.
 For the snowman face, I used Peachy Keen Everyday Character Face stamp set.  The snowman hat is from Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge and I used silver glitter ink to ink over it to give it some shimmer.  LOVE how it turned out.

I also used my snowflake cuttlebug folder to emboss the background of the box and added some ink to make the snowflakes look frosty.

I LOVE how the box turned out.  Those Peachy Keen faces are so adorable!!

Back to Crafting!!

Hi Everyone!!  I am sorry I have been MIA!  I just got home from spending 13 days in Childrens Hospital with my teenage daughter.  She had to have surgery to remove a large tumor on her pancreas.   She ended up having two surgeries and we are finally home.  She is now recovering at home.  I am so thankful that she will be home for Christmas. 

I will have a few Christmas projects up next week and then I will be back in full swing the beginning of January.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!
