Snowman Kit

Our Next Challenge !
This week the challenge at Papercraft Star is warmth.
There is always a photo that can be used as inspiration if you choose. I hope you will come play along with us! The challenges are always posted ahead of time so you can plan what you are going to make. You have until 6am eastern time to link up a project to possibly win some digital images from our sponsor The House Across The Bay.
When I think warmth I normally think of the warmth of sunshine or a soft snuggly blanket.
I was inspired by this ornament and loved the thought of what a snowman represents!
 Here's the front of the snowman kit I made for my son Parker.
I started by repurposing a candy box.
I peeled the paper off because I wanted to see how it was made and to make sure another layer of paper would not make it hard to open the box. Sometimes the lids fit too snugly like on perfume boxes, so adding a layer of fabric or paper makes it hard to slide open. After covering the box with shades of blue textured cardstock I decorated with a bunch of snowmen and snowflakes.
Here are all the kit contents to include a package of cocoa mix.
I love the shimmer and sparkle from the paper and beaded snowflakes.
The die used for the title is called Deck The Halls from a gift set called Jolly that came from Lifestyle Crafts. The snowmen also were from several dies from Lifestyle Crafts.
Inside I typed the kit contents and added a certificate of presentation from "Blank Backgrounds 045
