bbtb2 frosty

happy monday :) this week over at bbtb2 our challenge is  frosty the snowman. use any cart and create away:) i love snowmen :) be sure to check out the rest of the dts awesome snowpeeps and be sure to play along with us we LOVE when you do that :)

for this challenge i altered a little bag . im keeping on top of my christmas packaging this year so im not rushing at the end. we'll see how that actually works out ;)
i used winter woodland cartridge for this. this is my favorite snowman on this cart.
i added a tiny pompom on the hat. i stamped snowflakes onto the bag.
added a doily topper and a button. the stamped sentiment is from SU. i tied a bow using some paper wrapphia and  my fabulous bowmaker from 3 girls jam. added a button with twine  and memory thread.
thats it. simple but sweet :) this year im going to try my hand at homemade marshmellows , so thats whats going in this bag :) hey i have all year to perfect them excuses :)
hope ive inspired you to play along this week, thanks for stopping by for the visit and your sweet words always make me smile thank you so much for that :) have a fun crafty rest of day :) xxxshelly

Shelly, your altered treat bag is a treat for the eyes! Love your snowman and trees. And the stamped doily for a flap is brilliant. The bow with the decorated coordinating button is a great finishing touch!

OMGosh Shelly this bag is adorable!! I love that you are keeping on top of things for the new year, I need to do that too-always have good intentions but some how I fall short...I love this little snowman, he is one of my favorites and the little trees beside him make for such a cute scene! Love your stamped snowflakes as well on the bag and the doily, love how you stamped your sentiment on it!! Fabulous!

Love the bag, Shelley. Love those cute trees with your snowman. Great little scene. If I started this early, I would probably forget where I put things. lol
