For the first project, I used a tin to package some yummy Bliss chocolates (possibly for my daughter's teacher). I'm sorry I can't remember where I got the tin but I have a whole box of them in the basement. :) I used some kraft colored shredded paper to hold the chocolates in place. I then made band for the tin using designer paper from My Mind's Eye. I mounted the snowman on some ovals and scallops cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities. I wanted to jazz it up a bit so I dug out a container of snowflake ornaments that I bought from Hobby Lobby. (24 snowflakes for $7.99 and then I got 50% off!) I am pleased with the results. I debated clipping the string off the ornament because I don't like the way it looks, but I want her teacher to be able to remove the ornament from the belly band and use it.
I then decided to try a Pillow Puff box. I used the same idea to jazz it up using one of the HL snowflake ornaments. I also added some ribbon and a button.
I am entering these projects in the Digital Tuesdays Challenge (DTC#36) which was to make a project inspired by a Christmas song. "In the meadow we can build a snowman....." Luckily, you can't hear me sing.
Here is a look at all the coordinating items I made using Warm Winter.
