Isn't it hard to let go of the holidays? We all spend an incredible amount of time preparing and then before you know it, the time has come and gone. Why not extend the festivities a little longer by sending out just a few more cookies. I found this adorable snowman shaped box at my
local grocery store (on sale since it was so close to Christmas). It
was already somewhat decorated, but I decided to make it even more
adorable by recovering it with the Handmade Holidays.
I chose two pieces of patterned paper to line the outside of the
box. Then I measured and cut the strips of paper, matching up patterns
where I could since it took more than one strip to go around the box.
Then I used a tape runner and glue gun to adhere the paper to the box.
I would recommend using something like Modge Podge to seal the paper to
the box in order to make it more durable and ready for a second use.
To recreate the design, I used a plain piece of copy paper to trace
some of the elements on the box and then cut them out as a pattern.
Then I used the pattern to trace on the papers I selected from the Handmade Holiday collection. Pop dots on the buttons and part of the scarf make the design
more fun and dimensional.
