Eileen Hull's Inspiration Teams New Dies Blog Hop - Box Snowman and Box Mitten

Today I'm participating in Eileen Hulls Blog hop -  her Inspiration and Education Teams are creating projects using her brand new Sizzix Dies that are being released in July -   Box Mitten and Box Snowman!  Both are just adorable and perfect for all those small winter gifts we will be giving soon!
And as you will see by the other Designers projects - they don't just have to be used as a box!

Today I've got a project using the Box Snowman.

I adhered Glitter Card stock to all of the die cut pieces which gives this cute box the feel of bright glittery snow!  My project measures 3" x 4" over all. The box itself is about 2" x 2 3/4".
I decorated the snowmen on both ends of the box and added hearts, which are part of the Box Mitten Die, to his hand and hat.  I also die cut blue 'snowflakes' using a flower die from Eileen's Journaling Cards: Flowers and Leaves Thinlit set.
Here are most of the pieces I cut out - from both mat board and Glitter Card Stock.  I didn't have any orange glitter card and so I cut it out of white glitter and colored it with an orange Copic!
Here is the box piece attached to a snowman on one end - then I attached the other side.

I put some blue basket shred into the box and then filled it with 8 Hershey Kisses
Thanks for coming to the Eileen Hull/Sizzix Chapter 3 Release Party Blog Hop!
