Frosty Treats

Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!'s Friday!  And, I've got a fun challenge to share with you from the Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge Blog.  This week's challenge is all about one of my favorite winter color combinations :
Blue and White.

I made a sweet treat using this pretty combo:

* I recycled a Starbuck's Frappuccino bottle and filled it with Peppermint flavored M&Ms.
* The lid is spray painted white
* I made a label from this pretty blue plaid paper and added a row of white pom poms to the upper and lower edges.
* The snowflake is from the Silhouette Online Store.  After cutting it out, I inked up the edges with blue ink and covered it with some Martha Stewart Coarse Glitter.
* The glittery blue gem in the center of the snowflake is from "The Paper Studio"
* I added a white tulle bow around the neck of my bottle and a gem in the center of the bow.

* The box is also from the Silhouette Online Store and gets the same pretty blue paper and white pom pom trim along with a glittery snowflake. 2 packs of cocoa fit perfectly into this box.
* The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is from  the "Christmas Wishes" stamp set by Jaded Blossom.  It is stamped onto a flag cut with the "Flag Die" also by Jaded Blossom.

* The lid to my Frappuccino bottle is topped off with another snowflake and a sweet sentiment from Jaded Blossom's "Winter Candies" stamp set.

Ok - it's your turn now!  I hope you will stop by the Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge Blog and check out all the fabulous projects the Design Team has put together for you.  Then...go get creative and link up your project with us. I can't wait to see what you create!

Before I go, I would like to thank everyone for their concern and sweet words about my recent puppy bite!  It is healing nicely and looking better each day. I will have stitches for several more days, but it is becoming more and more flexible.  I also wanted to let you all know - this project and all the ones before it were completed before the bite!  I think a few of you thought I had made these with my poor, mangled up finger!  Fortunately, I had a few projects ready to post before hand!  After this one however....mangled finger and all!   So, again, thanks for your sweet words and thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I'll be seeing you soon!

Until next time,
