A Very Minty Christmas!

   I debated about posting this snowman because I made it before Candy Cane Christmas designer paper went out of stock. That's right. It is no longer available! But even though my snowman contains a product you can't purchase, I decided to show you anyway cause he is so much fun to make - and hopefully receive!
   I got the idea from Ghiradelli Candy and made it my own. It involves the Big Shot, Box #2, Clear Circle die, plus various punches. 

   When I originally made this project, I used the Circle Scissors Plus to make the 3" Circle in the center. I am excited to tell you that in the new, Occasions Mini (available Jan. 4), there is a 3" die and a 3 1/2" Circle die!!!! Woo Hoo!

  Here is a side view so you can see the box. It is covered with Candy Cane Christmas paper to match the mint candy inside. Note: I faced the box so it opens from the back. And I didn't tie the ribbon in a knot. Instead I used Mini Glue Dots to hold it in place. 
  I thought you would like to see the various pieces I used for my snowman. In addition, I added the punched greeting that he holds. If you look closely you can see some snowflakes stamped with one of the stamps from Serene Snowflakes. I had to use stamping somewhere! lol!
 Sorry, I don't have time to post directions but I think it is pretty straightforward. You can always email me. 

Stamps: Serene Snowflakes, Snow Swirled (eta)
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black, Peach Parfait
            Candy Cane Christmas specialty paper - no longer available
Ink: Sahara Sand for snowflakes and sponging edges
Accessories: Big Shot, Box #2, Clear Circle die, Circle Scissors Plus (or 3" circle die when available), Decorative Label Punch, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Oval Punch, Small Oval Punch, Wide Oval Punch, 1 3/8" Square Punch, Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, Sticky Strip, Ghiradelli Candy

Have a blessed day!

Lisa, this is the cutest project! I'm going to make some up right after the holidays using blue and white snowflake paper for a luncheon! I know my girlfriends will love them. TFS!

I just happen to have the Ghiradelli Candy as we speak and was trying to figure out how use them as a favor. So glad you posted this. Love it.
