CSAYL Gift Set #2

Good Morning! Today is the first Friday of the month so over at the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog we are creating a gift set. This week we are using a wonderful tutorial by our fabulous leader, Maria. She has created a tutorial for three different types of boxes. I chose the cupcake box to make. We also were to use SNOWFLAKES. When I think of snowflakes I instantly think of snowmen - which I LOVE. So for my gift set instead of having a cupcake in the box I made it contain everything you need to make snowman soup!

Here is the box and card. My card is more like a postcard - the front has the poem for snowman soup and the back is blank to write a message to someone. It's tall and skinny so it will fit in the box as well. One easy little package to give to that special someone! I was so happy to find this paper in my Christmas stash - the snowflakes are beautiful and it's one of my favorite color combo's: PINK AND GREEN.
Here is another view of the box. I used my Labels 9 die to cut out the window. Wanted to try something other than a circle.

Here's a picture of the contents, box, lid and card. I used the Labels 9 die again to make little tags for the kisses and snowballs. As you can see the snowman is on the top of the lid and the card. He's one of my favorite snowmen and is from a retired set by TAC.

So whatcha think? I am pleased with the results and I'm so glad I joined the gift set group. I would NEVER have made time to make this otherwise. Now I have one done, all the directions, measurements and such written down and I can make LOTS more for gifts or to sell. I hope you'll join us this week. Just visit the CSAYL blog to get the tutorial directions and to link your creation!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful Friday - we're getting a nice little thunderstorm which means Spring is officially here!! Yippee - I've seen plants and flowers starting to bloom and everything is turning green again. I think (knock on wood here) we are done with all that snow and cold for a while!
