FCCB Challenge #140 -Snow

Hello my friends!
Another Monday  and another great challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.

This week you are challenged to create a project with snow or a snowflake.   

My daughter and I participated in a cookie exchange this weekend.  So we spent all Friday night ( and I mean ALL NIGHT until 6 am ) baking cookies and making unique and fun ways to distribute them.  We made turtle cookies and I will post the jars with the Santa Turtles later. 

It did however make me think of other food gifts I will be preparing this year and what to put them in.  So, that is how this round box came to be.  

It it a kraft paper mache box I purchased at a craft store.  Then I cut out snowflakes with the Christmas cartridge from white cardstock.  I then covered the snowflakes with crystal effects and poured on my favorite glitter.  Martha Stewart coarse glitter in crystal. I love this glitter because it is not iridescent so it does not pick up other colors from its surroundings.  It remains crystal!

Unfortunately, glitter does not photograph very good so you will have to take my word for it that it looks awesome.  I think this box is going to a friend with either candy or carmel corn in it.  YUM!

Stop by and see all the snowy ideas going on at FCCB week and link up your projects.  We love to see all of your creations.

I'm off to work......

Talk to you later... 
Until then...Be safe and Create!
