Dollar Tree Snowman

Did you see these Wood Dollar Tree Snowmen this year.  I picked up four of them and was undecided what I was going to do with them.  They sure were cute but painting them is not something that I thought would look good.  So, I decided to cover them with scrapbook paper.  The results were to my liking!
There is a tutorial on my Youtube channel on how to create these snowmen.  You can find it here:
You know I had to make one in "Pink"!!!  My house is still decorated for a Pink Christmas!  Still loving my Pink Christmas decorations.

 Thank you so much for stopping by to view this project.  Be sure to stop by or tomorrows reveal of the Dollar Tree Santa.  Until next time friends......Happy Crafting!!!!

Dollar Tree Sled Ornaments

For Christmas week, I am sharing lots of Christmas projects here on my blog.  This is a rather photo heavy post today featuring the Dollar Tree Wooden Sleds that were sold there this year.  Just wanted to share this project with all of you as these make wonderful gifts and ornaments.   The above image is a Cottagecutz Snowman with Owl Pal. 
I just adore bears.  This is an Aliexpress die that I picked up a few years ago.  I searched and searched for him but I did not find him available on Aliexpress currently.
This is a cottagecutz die called Jolly Santa.  The poinsettia on all of these ornaments are a Spellbinders die.
This is Cottagecutz Penguins with Tree die.  These Cottagecutz dies are available at a reduced price right now.  Most dies are up to 80% off.
This is also another Aliexpress die that was bought several years ago that I could not find.  It is so cute.
This cottagecutz die is called Santa W/Reindeer & Sleigh.  
This is Cottagecutz Snowman & Owl Pal die.
Here is Cottagecutz Gnome w/chimney.
Marianne designs Creatables Santa is the die decorating this sleigh.

CottageCutz Window Ornament Tutorial

This is an awesome project that I had done several years ago.  I've brought it back but this time with a tutorial.  You will find a tutorial on my youtube channel.  Here is the link to the tutorial:
This is a wonderful Cottagecutz dies.  If you go over to The Scrapping Cottage, you will find these dies at 75% off for the after Christmas sale.  To create this ornament, you will need to purchase the window and the friends die.
Don't you just love how cute these ornaments are.  You will also need a matchbox die to create the shadow box.  I used a retired Cheery Lynn matchbox die from my stash, but a standard matchbox die should work for you.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Happy Crafting!

Candy Gift Box with Embellishments

Hello Friends and Crafters.  Today's post is this lovely Candy Gift Box that is filled with embellishments.  What a great gift for a crafty friend.  If you check out my YouTube channel you will find a tutorial for this box.  This is the link to the video:
Each candy box inside the gift box contains embellishments.  Here are some gathered paper embellishments.  Three fit nicely inside the box.
Another candy box contained these cute tiny tags perfect for tying onto gifts.  The stickers used on the tags were a Hobby Lobby find.
For the third Candy Box these little embellishments were built on an oval nesting die with a shaker ticket on top.  More Hobby Lobby Stickers were used to decorate.  So cute to put these in your journals, scrapbooks or even decorate a gift.
The last box has been left empty to fill with candy.  What a great way to gift a friend some cute embellishments.  Remember you can make this in any theme.  It doesn't have to be just Christmas.  Thanks so much for dropping by.  See you soon!  Happy Crafting!
