You Melt My Heart -- for Timeless Twine

Happy Monday, everyone.  Here we are, the last week in February already! But, it is still very much winter here in NW Wisconsin.  We recently got 15 inches of fresh snow, and now we're back to below zero temperatures every night.  With weather like this, I'm still thinking winter, and snowmen!

I created this snowman treat box to hold some chocolates or other goodies.  
Here's another view where you can see into the box better:

I used Aqua Blue Timeless Twine throughout this project.

Here's a look of the gift bag:

I used several Bella Creationz products on this:

                                            heart stickers

                                           mini clothespins

The snowman treat box is a cutting file from The Cutting Cafe.
The white glitter card stock on the front of the snowman is from American Crafts. All other card stock is from Close To My Heart, as is the stamped sentiment and buttons.  Designer papers are from Echo Park -- Winter Wishes.
I'll leave you with one last view of my snowman treat box:

  1. Heart is officially melted, Julie! This guy is adorable and the treats are so yummy! Love his sparkly body and check scarf…so fun! Sending you warm waves from NC!

  2. I love your snowman treatbox! But I do not love the snow. We don't have as much as you do in Chicago, but there's still piles of white/gray snow and patches of ice everywhere. It got up to 33 the other day and the birds are acting like it's 60!
    Keep warm, my friend!
