Snowman Easel Match Box




Hi! Today I am sharing a cute snowman easel match box. I created this project by combining two files from My Scrap Chick, Snowman's Friend Easel Card and Sweet Nugget Matchboxes.


Snowman's Friend Easel Card: click to enlargeSweet Nugget Matchboxes: click to enlarge             

Keeping all the pieces grouped together, I started by making the easel card so it is six inches wide. I made the snowman using glitter cardstock from Coredinations. The rest of the card was made using papers from my stash. I attached the nose, hat brim and arm with foam tape to give the snowman dimension.  A snowflake and blue gem embellishment was added to the hat band. The sentiment was accented with snowflakes and also attached with foam tape. (My sentiment came from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.)




For the drawers I kept the file grouped together, then sized it so the box measured three inches across. I made two of these out of tagboard so they were sturdier. I glued the two boxes together, side by side, then wrapped them in a coordinating piece of heavy cardstock. The easel card was then attached on top of the two boxes.



I used my snowman box to gift some tea to a tea loving friend, but it would be great for any small treasures. I love how it turned out! 



Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear what you think.

Snowman Box



HAPPY NEW YEAR!


We have definitely been having chilly weather lately - COLD! That made me think of snowmen and how to make one without freezing. I came up with this snowman box using four stacking boxes. Here's how I made him.

MATERIALS

Creepy Crawlers Trio svg from My Scrap Chick
Snowman's Friend Easel Card svg from My Scrap Chick
 white tagboard
heavy black  cardstock 
black burst cardstock 
white glitter cardstock by coredinations
orange scrap cardstock
1 large and 4 small glitter snowflake stickers (from Dollar Tree)
1 snowflake gem and 6 small clear gems (from Dollar Tree)
blue Diamond Wrap (from Dollar Tree)
2 inch sheer snowflake wired ribbon (Walmart)
4 - 1/2 inch blue buttons
white glitter tape (Cricut)

I used the box from this set for my snowman.

I made three white boxes in graduated sizes, 5 3/4 inches, 5 1/4 inches and 4 3/4 inches across. I made the base layer from tagboard for stability then added mats of glitter cardstock to each panel on the boxes and lids.

The bottom of the two smaller boxes is glued to the lid of the next larger box. I added the blue Diamond Wrap around the band of the largest box lid and added four small snowflakes and blue buttons down the front of the bottom two boxes. I made a snowman face using the one from Snowman's Friend Easel Card  and added it to the front panel of the smallest white box.


For the hat I made a 4 1/4 inch black box and added mats from a black burst cardstock from my stash. I duplicated the octagon from the pattern and made one 6 1/4 inches in black, and one 5 1/2 inches from the burst cardstock. These were used to make the brim of the hat. The black box was placed upside down on the brim and glued in place. White glitter tape was wrapped around the outside of the black box lid to make a hat band. The large snowflake was added to the front of the hat and then accented with the snowflake gem and 6 clear gems.



Each of the boxes will open so you have four nice compartments to use for storing goodies.

                                                




I hope you liked my little snowman box. Thanks for stopping by!

These little favor boxes are so much fun to make for those last minute little gifts. ( I'm going to fill mine with a little cash!) Thanks for stopping by!

Gingerbread Babies


Today I am sharing an easel card and tag set featuring "Gingerbread Babies #1 & #2"  digi stamps from My Scrap Chick.




For the easel card I used Frills Circle Easel Card, and for the tag I used Scallop Circle Tags.

I uploaded all the svg's and images into Design Space. I attached the images to the white scalloped layer of the easel card and the white plain circle of the tag.  The cardstock is from Recollections and the gingerbread paper is an old paper from Hot Off the Press. The "To:" and "From:" were added using a font from my ipad. The images were colored with Prismacolor pencils. I added holly and green and red gem accents. The sentiment is from Apex.


Thanks for stopping by.

Frosty's Top Hat




Hi! Today I am sharing a fancy snowman top hat box I made with files from My Scrap Chick.  I used Uncle Sam Hat Box for the box and Snowflake Layers for the large snowflake.

MATERIALS

Uncle Sam Hat Box and Snowflake Layers  files from My Scrap Chick
"Old World Winter" cardstock by the Paper Studio 
Glitter cardstock by Recollections
various Christmas silk florals
3/4 inch ribbon
snowflake stickers
small gems in sage and yellow
tape runner, glue and paper clips

After cutting out the pieces, I glued the main pieces together using a combination of tape runner and glue. The tape runner and paper clips hold the pieces together while the glue dries. 


The two largest octagons are used for the brim and the smaller ones are used for the boxes. 3/4 inch ribbon was added around the base of the hat. (I used 1/1/2 inch wide ribbon folded down to 3/4 inch. )
I used pieces of various floral stems to decorate the hat. I made a layered snowflake to add and also used snowflake stickers.


The inner part of the box lifts out as shown.




I love this file! You can use it for so many occasions! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Pint Jar Gift Wrap Holder





Hi! Today I am sharing a holder for a pint jar of body scrub I will be giving to a friend. I love how this turned out! I used Jam Jar and Candle Gift Wrap- Pint Jar and Little Girl Digi Stamps for my project.

I used "Cartulina Pink" by Recollections for the base of my gift wrap holder and prints from "Uptown Flair" from The Paper Studio for the mats, bow and flower.    There is a great pictorial tutorial on the MSC website on how to put together this  pint jar gift holder.   

   


I used Design Space to add the little spa girl  from Little Girl Digi Stamps and the sentiment (from Digital Delights by Louby Loo) to the tag that is included with the pint jar holder. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers.

I love these jam jar/candle gift wrap holders! They are so versatile and can be used for so many things! They are also super easy to make! 

Relax and enjoy your day!

Reindeer Ride Saffi Shaker Card





Today I am sharing a shaker card made with Reindeer Ride Saffi from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

CARD RECIPE

DD Stamps Used: Reindeer Ride Saffi, Days of Christmas Set (retired)

Papers & Cardstock: Glitter and aqua cardstock by Recollections, glossy purple cardstock by Colorbok

Markers used: Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, sky - Prismacolor pencils

Acc./Embellishments: Snowflakes, various seed beads, foam tape

Special Technique: The base of my card was made with a file from Bird's Cards. The opening was originally an oval but I used Design Space to stretch it into a circle. I then made a base layer by slicing a circle into the coordinating spot. The card was sliced again so it is 5 bt 6 inches. I used a Fuse tool and various seed beads to make the shaker element.After the layers were assembled,  I added two plastic snowflakes that I had in my stash. Saffi was added with foam tape.
