To me, snow symbolizes a fresh start, the old being washed white as snow (thank you Lord).  So as we prepare to close the chapter on 2017 and open a new one for 2018, I challenged the Sisters in Stamping designers to create projects using winter or snow as their inspiration.

And to combat the feeling of cold that winter sometimes bring, I created this hot chocolate gift box to warm the heart.  I filled an Acetate Card Box with two packets of Hot Chocolate, a bunch of mini marshmallows, and two left over candy canes from Christmas.  Just enough for two warm cups of hot chocolate – delicious!


The belly band used to decorate this little gift was made using Merry Music Specialty DSP, Mini Tinsel Trim, Black Mini Sequin Trim, Foil Snowflakes, and an image from the Merry Little Labels stamp set cut out with the Everyday Label Punch.

I used two Foil Snowflakes – one is flat and the other is cut in half and folded accordion style for some added dimension.  I then adhered sequin and tinsel behind and my stamped image on top, secured using dimensionals so as not to squish my snowflakes.
