CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Christmas Favor

Those of you that follow me know that I LOVE making 3D items…favors or large home decor pieces!  It is what got me hooked on stamping over 13 years ago!  I wish I would have know about it when my kids were young and having birthday parties…oh the favor bags I could have made!  lol!  So this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Christmas Favor is right up my alley!

I’ve had this snowman done for a few weeks and have been saving him for this week!  Of course, I used the Snow Place stamp set and Snow Friends Framelits to decorate the Cutie Pie Box!  Isn’t he SOOOO cute?



Cutie Pie Snowman
Here are the details:

  • The Cutie Pie Box is cut from Thick White Cardstock.
  • The sides I added a 1-3/4 wide strip of Season of Cheer Designer Paper.
  • I inked up the face of the snowman with a Basic Black Marker on one side of the Cute Pie Box before putting it together, then colored the nose with Pumpkin Pie.
  • I stamped the hat with Tuxedo Black Ink, the scarf with Marina Mist Ink, and the candy cane with Real Red Ink.  The holly I inked up with the Real Red and Garden Green Markers.  The hat band colored with Marina Mist marker.  All were cut with the Snow Friends Framelits and adhered to the front side of the box.
  • The buttons were punched with the 1/4″ Circle Punch from Black Glimmer Paper and added with Mini Glue Dots.

I love how he turned out and how easy it is to open the bottom of the box and fill with a special treat!

i love the ‘alternative’ use of the pie box die. I still have to try to ‘play’ with that die…

Your first paragraph expresses my thoughts exactly! I often say I wished I would have found stamping/Stampin’ Up! when my kids were little! All the party favors, class parties, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, etc. etc. Not that I wasn’t always doing crafty things then, it just wasn’t as easy as stamping!! LOVE the snowman box!

OMG! This is so cute Connie! I loved the other one you did. I think it was a Christmas tree too.
