I’m back today to share another Baby, It’s Cold Outside challenge project for the ABC Toys & Crafts DT Challenge. Have you played yet?! If not, you need to get your craft on PRONTO!! You only have until this Saturday, January 22nd to play along, so you best get on it!!
So, I thought a Snow Day Fun Kit would be appropriate for the theme. I picked up this darling paint can at JoAnn’s the other day and thought it would be fun to decorate it with some die cut vinyl. This stuff is a blast to work with!! It’s self-adhesive, so I’m guessing that it will adhere to pretty much any surface. It worked beautifully with this paint can. So I created a winter scene with a snowman (a Sizzix die I got on sale at JoAnn’s), and some colorful snowflakes (created with the Create A Flake 2 Shapeabilities).
Once I adhered all of the pieces for my winter scene, I created a tag to go along with it. I created the tag using the Labels 14 Nestabilities and Classic Ovals Nestabilities. The sentiment is stamped using the new Typewriter Letters clear set from Hero Arts – I love that I can create my own sentiments with that, don’t you?!! I attached the tag to the paint can by attaching an eyelet and then tying it on with some baker’s twine.
This could be filled with some hot chocolate, some playing cards, maybe some color crayons, and how about some hand lotion and lip balm for those Snow Days, huh?!! The possibilities for contents are endless!!
That’s it for me today, peeps. I got some new inks this weekend, so I’m hoping to get some stamping done over the next couple of days. I hope you’ll play along with the ABC Toys & Crafts DT Challenge. For all the deets, please click on the blinkie below. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
