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!!

  1. super cute snowman on a great box Carolyn, well done, GL!
    I worked with individuals with physical and mental disabilities before I got hurt and one gentlemen that frequents the centre likes to wink at people, so I used a winking stamp on his card and caught his personality perfectly, his mom loved was sooo cute.
    SS about your daughters finger, awwwwwwwww that's so sad to have her excitement crushed, poor lil sweety. I remember when my son broke his thumb going down the slide after his second night at Karate....he had to drop out of the season, he was's little trials ehhh :)
    Sending your family warm wishes for a safe and happy holiday season that continues the whole new yr through :) Cindy
