Winter Project Parade ~ Day 10!!!

Here we are, day 10 of Verve's Winter Project Parade! Haven't the Diva's provided some wonderful inspiration so far?! Since the theme for this month's project parade is "Triple Play", I have a little gift set that includes 3 pieces. I have made a snowman ornament with a coordinating gift box and card.

The container is a paper mache cylinder that I got at Joanne's for $1 some time ago. I covered it with decorative paper from Echo Parks, Wintertime Collection. Boy do I LOVE this paper!!!On the cylinder, I glued on a string of pearls that I got from Hobby Lobby for CHEAP and added Kaiser Craft purple rhinestones on one of the trees as well as the snowflakes around the top. Details on the lid and card will follow.

Here is a picture of the snowman ornament. I made a little charm for his hat using the largest snowflake from the new Glad Tidings set, Timber Brown Stazon, Polyshrink and some lavender Stickles.
Here is a closer look at the little charm ~
Here is a picture of how cute and cozy he looks inside his home!!!
A closer look at the container ~
Here are the details on the lid. I covered the outside edge with brown Bazzill CS. I found the best way to adhere the paper to the paper mache is to glue it so I used Elmer's glue. I then cut a large circle of Bo Bunny brown polka dot paper that ALMOST covered the entire lid. I then added a large white snowflake that I cut using my Spellbinders die. On top of that I added a Spellbinders Lacey Circle cut from purple Bo Bunny DP. I then cut a smaller Spellbinders snowflake from white glitter paper and then stamped the largest snowflake from Verve's Glad Tidings on white CS using Cocoa Memento. I cut out the center portion of the snowflake, added some purple rhinestones and tied the same charm (on the snowman's hat) in the center using brown bakers twine. Oh and I did add purple Stickles on the back of the charm to add some shine!!! Here is a closer look ~
For the little notecard. The card is 3x3 and was cut from the same Brown Bazzill CS I put around the outside of the container lid. I then stamped the tree from Verve's Christmas in the Air set on the same purple Bo Bunny DP using Cocoa Memento ink. I added another snowflake charm, rhinestones and SNOW!!! LOL!!!

Here is the inside which I used one of the awesome sentiments and snowflakes included in the Glad Tidings set! Sorry this post is so long...I got a little carried away!!!! LOL!!!
