Snowman Gift Boxes


These have been a classic Gift Giving Idea in this home for years! They are just too cute not to share! Super easy, fast and affordable! The perfect combination!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Fun Foam in Black and Orange
A Foam Brush
Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Ribbon
Black and Pink Paint
A Sponge
White Chinese Food To Go Boxes

**I buy my To Go Boxes at Orson Gygi in Salt Lake City. You can buy a 50 pack for less then $10! Smart n Final in CA also sells them. If you buy them at a Craft store they usually run $1.29 each so try to find a Restaurant supply store and buy in bulk!



First you’ll cut your hat and nose pieces. The size of your box will determine the size of your pieces. The top section of your hat should be the with of your box and the brim about 1″ longer on each side!


Glue your ribbon onto the bottom of your Top hat section.Glue it to your box and add your brim piece last!
Glue on your Carrot nose!

Now we can add our Rosy Cheeks! Cut a small Circle out of a sponge! Dip it into your pink paint and dab off the paint! You will gently press it onto the face of the box. Less is more!!!

And lastly we’ll add our black dots for the eyes and mouth! Use the end of a Foam Brush and dip it into Black Paint! Each time you do a dot be sure to dip again before making your next dot!



And there he is! Ready to be filled! This year mine are filled with Holiday Covered Pretzels!

Add a pretty tag and off you go spreading Cheer!
Thanks for being so “Winter Wonderful!”

We had been having the wedding out on the grass and believe it or not, I was wearing high heeled shoes! They have been ruined by the end in the day :(

    Although this was one in the worst experiences I've ever had with my shoes, it truly led my sister in law to create a merchandise which is just awesome! It's already been featured on TV shows like the Girls of the Playboy Mansion, as well as the show Kendra.

    Heels Above will support you protect your pricey heels from sinking in mud, slipping in cracks, and walking on sand and gravel. It is a new merchandise, and I thought I'd share it with all of you.

    They are taking orders now. You can order one pair, or a few dozen for your big wedding day.

    I hope you guys like it… If you've any questions, feel free to drop them an email on their web site:
