I just fell in love with this project. I think I first saw these done by Becky Roberts but I loved the way mine turned out! These can be made into pins or ornaments. Even a magnet!

4.1/8 x 3 1/8 score .50 on all 4 sides
Punch label punch in the middle of the lid add window sheet.
Window sheet is
DSP All is calm cut 2.50 x 1.50 and 1.75x 1.50 for the sides of the box
Card stock colors pear pizazz, pool party, white, lost lagoon
Tie with white ribbon 12 inches long. Stamp tag in lost lagoon and add a snowflake in pool party. Tie on with bakers twine.
To make the snowman you will need a battery operated tea light

To make the snowman using white card stock
Punch in the center of white paper using the circle punch from trio.mini punch pack. Then center the punched circle in the 1 3/8 Circle punch.
Large pearls colored with a black sharpie for eyes.
Small pearls also colored In black for mouth
Using the Blossom builder punch; punch designer paper with the petal side. Then using the large scallop punch for the brim, punch the arch in the brim using the retired small oval punch. The tassel is punched using the mini scallop circle also from the Mini Trio. I used the sweater trim from last year to tie around the Tea light like a scarf. I used very little paper shreds inside the box and tied it off with white satin ribbon. Enjoy!

Using a 3x3 sheet of very vanilla and a scrap piece of cardstock to punch a scallop circle from; take your soft sky ink and create clouds with a sponge. Set aside. stamp 2 trees on your vellum and punch out. Use a strip of brushed gold 1.25 x 4.25 and punch your stars. Now tape your trees onto the 3x3 piece of cloudy very vanilla. Keep in mind the whole tree wont show just the tops. Pile the confetti stars in the middle.
Going back to the 4x5.25 embossed very vanilla on the back side tape down a 3x3 window sheet, then place the largest shaker frame around the punched circle. Peel off the sticky sheet and turn over center this piece over your Old olive Cardstock and it should perfectly circle your trees and stars.
Tie your bakers twine around the lower half. Then add a dimensional to each corner. Stamp an accent tree on Very Vanilla in Gold dry with a heat gun and punch. Using dimensionals pop it up on the front. Using your circle framelits and a 3x3 sheet of gold glitter paper and your Bigshot cut out a circle using the 2 inch circle and the next size up. I glued this in place with Tombo quick dry glue. On a scrap piece of very vanilla stamp your greeting and punch out using the modern label punch and pop up with dimensionals. Cut another 4x5.25 for the inside greeting, you can decorate the inside with the gold strip you punched the stars out of if you desire.
