Snow Folks Gift Bag

Good Morning Friends,today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 . Frosty the Snowman is the theme and we want you to make a project incorporating cricut cut snowmen. It was fun to papercraft some after making so many real ones lately!
The gift bag is cut at 4" from Artiste and embossed,inked and enamelled.
A little distressed washi tape for interest.
The snowflake and snow peeps were cut at 3" from Snow Folks.
I cut a few snowflakes and glued them together to make it sturdy enough for inking and adding twinklets to.
A bit more inking and doodling and some 3d foam for dimension.
I used Ranger black enamel accents for the eyes.
My fellow team mates have lots of fabulous snowmen projects to inspire you so do pop over to BBTB2 and check them out.
Do come and join in the fun with us.
