Here is the garden tour guide list. Feel free to bring some hot chocolate!
For my frosty project I decided to use the adorable Penny Black stamp” Sweet Snowman” to make a little treat box. I also want to introduce you to the Purple Onion Treat Label stamps. I’m so excited to use these for the holidays!!
I started with a 3″x3″ clear box.
I stamped the snowman, colored him with copics and then cut out around him. Here are the colors I used:
I made the cute label for the front using the Sweet Treats label set stamped in pink ink. Over the label I stamped “toffee” from the Home Made Treats set (it has TONS of different labels for all the treats you can imagine). Then I cut out the label with a circular die.
Using the patterned paper and cardstock from the Frosted Winter Paper kit, I cut the following pieces:
A strip of striped paper 1″ x12″ as a band around the box.
A square of striped paper 2 7/8″ by 2 7/8″ for the top of the box.
A strip of blue cardstock 1″ wide and 8 1/2″ long. I scored the strip 1 1/4″ from each end folded it in the center. This will be the tab the supports the snowman.
A scalloped circle for behing my circular label.
A blue mat to fit behind my cut out snowman.
Here are all my pieces:
To assemble the box, make a 1″ slit in the middle of the square and feed the folded blue cardstock strip through the slit. Adhere the bends in the strip the the bottom of the patterned paper square.
Adhere the square to the top of the box. Adhere the patterned paper strip around the box. The strip will not quite make it all the way around the box – so position the gap so the Sweet Treat label covers the gap.
The last step is to adhere the image to the tab. Place the image in front of the tab and the blue mat behind the tab and adhere them in place. Then just fill the box with the toffee. Pretty quick and easy!
So there is my winter project. I’m Cathy and my treat is Apple Crisp. Hop on over to Amber next to see what treats she has for you….
