Old Man Winter is right around the corner, and those of you who know me, know that I love cute little snowmen!! I have a whole collection and put them up for the holidays, but leave them displayed until February, so I can enjoy them all season long.
This little guy came from My Scrap Chick in the Full Cup Treat Holders kit. It comes with 3 Handled Mugs. Can you believed I used all three mugs in this one piece?? I absolutely LOVE the way it came out. You can fit two gifts inside this snowman box. I am going to start from the bottom and go up to explain how I made it.
The scarf, the Demitasse size cup, needs to be slightly enlarged so that the Big Cup, the snowman head, can slide inside.
I folded the handle to the back of the Big Cup (head) before sliding into the scarf. You could cut it off, but I wanted to show it as a mug. You now will have a little room inside the scarf to tuck
away a small gift.
The Scooped Cup, the Top Hat, is turned upside down and becomes the lid. The scoops actually slide into the head and hold the entire piece together, nice and snug. Leave out two scoops on the sides to look like earmuffs. I have since added POM-POMS to these...and OMG, it's just so stinkin' cute!!
Include a second gift to the snowman's head. It's big enough to add a cello bag filled with cookies or candies, tied with a cute matching tag. Keep your cost way down on the actual gift, because like I said, these boxes are part of the gift.
The embellishments really make this piece pop! .
The eyes, carrot nose and the star came from My Scrap Chick Winter Friends Treat Boxes. I added the Cardinal from The Snowman Collection in a little shredded nest plopped right on top of the hat.
All in all, I LOVE this little guy...
isn't he so cute????
Thanks for stopping by and....oh, I will be making some other pieces with this same set ...so drop in again and see what's cookin'!
