Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

It really is a shame that the weather isn't very winter-like lately in the Midwest.  HA!  I am not at all missing the typical winter around here--give me El Nino any time!  ;)

Anyway, I wanted to make an ornament to give the hostess of our family party this past weekend, so I used the Cricut Close to My Heart Artistry cartridge to make a snowman without the cold.

Can you believe how little those detailed snowflakes are cut???

I have seen several versions of this type of ornament...and I am a HUGE fan of Olaf and the song, so I just couldn't wait to make my own version.  I ended up using some leftover white circles instead of trying to fit the snowman body into the glass ornament, but I started with the cute little guy below.

I love to have extra tags laying around so I always cut extras when using my Cricut Explore.  I grabbed one to write this adorable phrase and added a peppermint candy image from the Merry, Merry My Acrylix stamped in Cranberry Ink. 

See that tiny little black hat?  I used some Green Glitter Paper to liven up some plain black CS.  This particular color combo is still only available while supplies last, so don't wait!
I have been wanting to use these Cupcake Boxes forever, and this was the perfect time!

Are YOU making any handmade gifts this year?  Tell me what you are making!  :)
