Christmas Projects

I finally finished and delivered the projects I made for my Boo's school friends and teachers.  I made explosion boxes for the teachers and Snowman Soup for the children. 
Lets start with the teachers.  This first box is fairly simple made from green card stock and DCWV pattern paper. the gingerbread people I found a year or so ago and cant for the life of me find the link again. Sorry about the out of focus photos, I was doing this quickly before school.

The next box is made with DCWV glitter paper and hand stamped with snow flakes on the interior. The "cookies" were colored in PSE to look like they were frosted they are from Elizabeth Dulemba.  The doors, windows, and roof of the box are a patterns that I found at Little Paper Shop.  The house on the interior I found at Twelve 22, I then colored it with pencils.  I wanted to design one myself but ran out of time, and hey why reinvent the wheel?

I also colored a stone path and threshold from the gate to the house.  Both boxes were given with gift cards inside to Boo's teachers.
I then made "Snowman Soup" packets for the kids. Super simple and so much fun!  I designed a bag topper using images from Meljens Design here and here and snowflakes from my computer scrapbook program.
I made 24 of these each containing :
3 Hershey's kisses
1 bag of cocoa mix
5 mini snowman marshmallows
1 peppermint stick

Thats all for now thanks for looking!!!

  1. This is SO cute! What a creative way to use my sugar cookie images! I set up an online Coloring Page Tuesday gallery through facebook so people could share their creations using my images at If you're on facebook, I hope you'll share your 'explosion box' there. And each week I feature one of the posted cards in my Coloring Page Tuesday newsletter
    Hope to see you there!
