Makeover Monday Snowflakes PLUS Chocolate!

I LOVE making little treats for people who are completely unsuspecting of it...and the week before Christmas is the perfect time to pull this off when you work at a school!  ;)

I made little Ghiraradelli Chocolate holders for some of my peeps and can't wait to surprise them.

I really thought this sentiment from the Close to My Heart Season of Magic My Acrylix was PERFECT for our current polar weather.  I just wanted to add some color to the leaves and berries, but I am not a big fan of masking when I stamp.  I needed an easier way.  Enter the ShinHan Touch Twin Markers!  I stamped the image in White Daisy Pigment Ink and then heat embossed with the White Ranger Super Fine Powder.  Finally, I simply colored with the markers over the embossing!

It doesn't even have to be perfect to be perfectly amazing looking!

A simple gift, yet definitely effectively satisfying during the last days before Christmas (can you say 'indoor recess'???!)

I added another fun sentiment from the same stamp set in a 2 inch scalloped circle on the back of the little 3.75x3.5ish card.  This card is actually a gift card holder die from My Creative Time.  Like I always say, easy is great because it gets things DONE!

So, in case you were wondering, here is my "makeover" part of this Monday...I altered one of the CTMH Thin Cuts Snowflake Dies by cutting loose some of the arms...a GREAT solution when the white glitter paper is a bit too small.  ;)


  1. Very cute! Don't you just love those snowflake Thin Cuts?

    1. YES!!!! It is a shame they sold out. I do hope they return sometime. Sorry that took so long to reply...I had no idea I had any comments since my email died in October! OOOOPS!!! ;)


Thank you for adding some sparkle to my day with your comments!
