25 Days of December - Day 23 SNOWMAN

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room 25 Days of Christmas,
with 25 Cricut projects a day.  Don't forget to stop by
Erica's blog to see 24 more projects today....
and every day in December.

Today's theme was SNOWMAN
My project today was to use the Cuttlebug.

Here is my project....
 I had so much fun making these little treat holders, but I cannot take credit for the idea.  I got the original idea from Cassandra at  She made the most adorable little inexpensive gifts, and I decided to make them for the people at my husband's and my work.  Here is a picture of the first ones I made:
These were cute enough, but then, Glora over at glorascrafts made the snowman!!  So these are my take on the little treat holders.  I made 45 of these!!  They were very simple to make, but they took me a long time since I made so many. 

Now, the only cricut cut on these is the snowman hat, cut from Snowfriends.  The treat holder itself was cut with my Cuttlebug using the Lollipop Holder Die from Emma at My Creative Time.  I love this die!!  I can't wait to make some cake pops and put them in this little holder.  The heads were punched with a 2" circle punch and for the penguins face, I also used a heart punch, then trimmed it down to fit in the circle.  Their cute little faces are from Peachy Keen.  Then I finished them off with a
few gems and some bakers twine scarves!!

Here are some closeups:

 Here is a side view showing what was lying within the treat holder, little bottles of hand sanitizer that I got at Bath and Body for on $1.00 each!!

Everyone that received one of these little treats really loved them!!

Happy Crafting!!
