Everyone ready for the upcoming weekend? I hope you have a lot of fun things planned and maybe even a little crafting ;)
Today over at the My Creative Time blog, we are bringing you
We will be bringing you projects based on something that has inspired us in some way.
I don't have a photo to show you of my inspiration but I will tell you about it :)
Last week we got blanketed with some of that pretty white stuff. Yep!, I'm talking about SNOW!
I know that is a much dreaded word for a lot of people but I LOVE it!!
Maybe because where I grew up we never got any. Anywho, now that we are living someplace where we get snow at least once a year (on average), I can't get enough of it! I love the way it sparkles when the sun hits it, the laughter of the children playing in it, driving out of my neighborhood and seeing all the fun snowpeople that had been built and remembering the days of when my children and I would go out and play in it and then come inside and have a nice hot cup of cocoa while we got warmed back up just to go back out and play some more. :) So last week when I was sitting inside watching the snow fall, I got inspired! I decided to make a little pocket box to put some hot cocoa packets in.
After I built my box, I added some patterned paper to the front. Then I knew I wanted to decorate a tag for the main focus of my box front. I used a tag from the Tag Dies set. I love that little scallop border along the bottom! I stamped my sentiment from the You're So Cool Stamp set and added some glitter to the bottom of my tag to replicate the sparkle of the snow. How cute is that little snowman from the You're So Cool stamp set? I love him! I stamped him onto a piece of scrap paper and then fussy cut him out so that I would be able to pop him up with some foam adhesive. Once that was done, I simply adhered my tag to the front of my box. To finish it off, I added a little red bow that I made using the Fun Size Scallop Stitched Bow Die. I love those bows!! They are so adorable!
Here is a view of my box from the side so that you can see the dimension:
And inside the box, I was able to fit 2 packets of hot cocoa:
Yum-o!! I love cocoa!
I have a feeling this little box will be getting sent to my daughter who loves this hot chocolate more than I do, I think lol!
