Glitter Queens Winter Blog Hop Day 3

Wow-where does the time go?  Today is the last day of our hop and we hope you've enjoyed everything.   Did you see what Jenny did today?   My project today is a sweet little something for all the extra people on your holiday list.  Something for the postman, bus driver, favorite clerk at a store or coworker.

A few weeks ago our commissary had Starbucks hot cocoa packets.  I used some whisper white to make a pocket for the hot cocoa and a top hat lifts it out.  I attached a mini candy cane and there you go!
The whisper white is 6 1/4" x 8 1/2.  On the long side score at 3/4, 1 1/8, 4 3/4, 5 1/8.  Along the bottom score at 1/4" and it will make a box with an open top.
The hat is black 3 1/2 x 4 3/4"  On the long way score at 2 1/8 and 2 3/8.  Attach it to the packet.  The brim is 2 pieces of black 1 x 4 3/4" with all corners rounded and attached to the top of the box.
The eyes are 1" circles with white pupils from a hand held punch.  The nose is pumpkin pie cut with the pennant punch.  Jolly Bingo Bits and the small scallop decorate the brim.  His scarf is from the DSP stack cut with the Hearts a Flutter framelit.
If you have any questions please leave me a comment.  Now on to Gina and don't forget Tamara.
One last project before I go....what do you do with the Christmas cards you receive?  Here's how I preserved mine last year.


  1. Oh,your snowman is just way too cute! This is a great idea and would be an awesome gift! Thanks for your inspiration!
    I see in your profile you are living in Germany. In which town? I'm living in the near of Kassel and Göttingen.
    Have you learning German?
