Snowmen Sleigh Ride!

Snow has hit us hard here in Edmonton... and as soon as it came so did my cold! Probably why I haven't blogged in a bit... been feeling a bit under the weather :( 
I got this really nasty cough that's not going away, booohooo me, sniff, sniff, cough!
So while I was on some great cough medicine today... I thought I would get some crafting done, lol. Here's what I made. 


Aren't they the cutest snowmen ever?! I had to get the latest SVG Cuts Christmas Open House kit specifically for this snowman file! So easy and quick to make! Thanks again Mary for the wonderful files you create! 


Here is a closer look at my "man!" Did you notice his broom. This was another Thienly Azim inspired project. She had made a broom in a recent post... I thought it would work great with my snowman. Check out her broom here. For the broom, I used a wooden dowel wrapped with black washi tape and used the branches from here to create the broom bristles. The holly on the hat also comes from the same kit. 


This 3D sled was also inspired by Thienly. As soon as I saw her latest SVG Cuts Design Team project, I knew I had to make one! Check out her sled here... it's amazing! Thanks Thienly for all your help and inspiration!


I think these snowmen will make the perfect Christmas treat boxes for the kids teachers this year... Who wouldn't love them, especially when they are filled with irresistible goodies! 

Thanks for stopping by! 
Happy crafting!
