Today is the start of the Gifts From the Heart Blog Hop! The ladies at SVG Attic are putting on a blog hop full of cute little gift ideas for all the people you see on a daily basis but just need a small gift for. If you just came from Kasi's blog you are on the right track! If you are just popping by my little corner of the world and you missed the beginning of the hop you can start at the SVG Attic blog. Trust me you won't want to miss any of the projects. In case you get lost along the way here is the line up of talent:
Kasi <-- You were just here.
Jessica L <-- That's me!
Laura <-- You're next stop.
So are you ready to see what I made? Well I'm going to tell you a little story about my project first, I know I'm a tease :) As you may have seen earlier my great-grandmother passed away last week and we had her funeral earlier this week. Well at lunch after the service we were all sitting around sharing stories and memories. One of the things that all the kids remembered was great-grandma's candy and marshmallows. She made sure to have them at all times cause you never know when one of those grand-kids was going to stop by. Now these were not any old candies or marshmallows, it was always Nips (the chocolate filled ones) and the pastel fruit flavored marshmallows. So I decided to make a snowman for someone special with all the special things great-grandma always gave us. Now a snowman has three sections so I needed one more treat to complete the goodies...kisses! There was always a kiss ready and waiting for you when you got to great-grandma's. So without further ado here is my little snowman full of great-grandma's goodies.Holiday Cheer Boxes set and cut them at 3 different sizes to create the snowman. The snowman's eyes, nose, buttons, and arms are from the Build A Snowman set. I just made the snowman's hat with out any SVGs (it didn't come out that great either) but you could use the rosette from the gift card box in the Holiday Cheer Boxes set for the brim if you wanted and the hat in the Mad Tea Party set for the hat shape, just cut it really small :)
Here is a close up of the snowman's face and hat. Of course I wrapped the hat with a little twine to create the band.
