Snowman Gift Box with My Scrap Chick

Hi there! Welcome to Luv Scrapping Together!

Today I am sharing a project that I created using a files from My Scrap Chick.

I started a new job 2 weeks ago and my crafting time has been not as easy to come by so my postings may be a little less than normal until I adjust to my new schedule. I did manage to work on this project a little everyday this past week and I really love the way it turned out.


To create my snowman, I used the Creepy Crawlers Trio. I sized each octagon box using Silhouette Designers Studio and made each box approximately 1/2 inch smaller than the other. I, also, sized the edge of each spider box lid just slightly smaller so it would fit inside each box bottom. Before I put my boxes together I ran them through my Cuttlebug with the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder. I added a bit of blue ink to the embossing and then put my boxes together.


My snowman's face is from Peachy Keen Stamps PK-548 1 1/4" Snow Faces. I colored in his nose with Copic markers. A circle was added to create his hat brim. I embellished his hat with some crinkle ribbon, jingle bells, some punched greenery, and some bits and pieces from a floral pick. I gave him a red felt scarf and some buttons and embellished him further with some coarse glitter here and there to give him a frozen effect.

Each part of the snowman opens to tuck some candies or a gift inside. He would look wonderful as part of a winter display, too.

Check out My Scrap Chick to see all the fun files that are carried. You can make them as is or use your imagination to create something different by combining files.

Thank you for joining me today.

Until next time...
Happy Crafting!!
