Snowmen Treats

Hello everyone!!  I hope you all are well.  It's been a busy December so far and next week is even busier--I have something just about everyday next week and that's after work!

Here are some snowman treat holders I made a few weeks ago and am just now blogging :)  The top one I made at Archivers for a make and they had.  They sent the directions home and I made a few additions.

The directions do show to use a snowflake embossing folder, but they did not use that in the store.  And they had a square punch for the hat and another punch for the nose.  The holly is a Martha Stewart punch which I did purchase.  It also has you have that flap in the front.  On mine, I made the flap be on the inside.

I did use the Snowflake Cuttlebug folder on this.  And I cut the square and rectangle for the hat, and the carrot nose on my Cricut.  I don't remember the dimensions.  But I think it's in my Gypsy still.  If you'd like the sizes, leave a message and I'll try to get them for you :)

It looked a bit plain to me so I added some fabulous Christmas Candy Cane Trendy Twine, faux stitching, and some Frosted Lace Stickles.  Here they are side by side. I do like the one I made at home better :)

I didn't take a side shot, but you take a small clear bag, add some candy and tape it to the inside before you close the top. My hope was to make a bunch of these to pass out at work, but I don't think I will get as many done as I planned.  Have a great weekend!!
