Snowman basket!

Hello! How is your weekend? Mine has been really nice! We had a wonderful day visiting our son yesterday! :) I miss him already though. :(

I spent most of today working on my swap for tomorrow's demonstrator meeting! The theme is "Use your Big Shot/Cuttlebug" somehow on your project! Project is anything goes! I decided that I would make something super simple and as usual my idea turned into a lengthy involved project! I used the Tope Note die and the fingers of the snowflake die to make the arms of my snowman! I made a little insert to turn the top notes into a basket and added a handle. I stamped snowflakes on the front, back and sides and added Dazzling Diamonds to the centers. I used the new snowman background stamp from the holiday mini, but cut out his middle! I used brads as button! You could stuff lots of tiny little things into this basket, but my choice would be something chocolate-y! :) Here is my Cuttlebugged snowman project:

Thanks for stopping by! I will be back soonest! :)

This is even better than the pumpkin. I have a Cricut and it's been sitting doing nothing for nearly 4 months's time to put it to work.

Thanks for such great ideas.
