Borrowing a Cup of Ideas

OK, after reading Rebecca's post here about the Chilly Willys that Sandra made here, I decided to share an idea I "borrowed" from Kris's post here. Friday evening I went to a cookie exchange with a group of gals I used to work with. We all have gone our separate ways career-wise, but we still get together several times a year. I baked the cookies I posted about here and found some cute snowman containers at the dollar store which began my snowman theme for the packaging. After being inspired by Kris's whimsical snowman tags, I decided I would make a similar tag to tie on each of the cookie containers. However as I was making them, I realized that they were more involved than I had thought and was quickly running out of time to put together a little handmade giftie to give each of the gals in addition to the cookies. So I decided to turn the snowman tags into the gift by making them into a little shadowbox.
I liked him so much, that I made an extra one to keep for myself! Thanks so much for the idea and the inspiration Kris! Oh and by the way, the cookie exchange gals loved them too!

What a cute creation.
It is funny how we see something someone else has made and do our own - re-creation of it. Such fun.
