Paper Sweeties December Release {peeks} - Day 2!

 Hello sweeties!!  Welcome to Day #2 of {peeks} for the Paper Sweeties December *new* stamp release!  Tomorrow's the BIG day -- hurrah!!

For today's inspiration project, I created a little gift bag with hot cocoa, mini marshmallows and Ghirardelli peppermint chocolate inside!

I wrapped some silver cording around the chocolate and tied on a sweet little tag created using the Little Wishes stamp set.  

The bag topper was created with a pretty paper doilie, a glittered chipboard snowflake, a scrumptious white satin bloom, a couple of red and white polka dotted leaves, a fun chenille candy cane, a button and two sweet jingle bells tied on with baker's twine!

I stamped the cute sentiment directly onto the kraft and polka dotted bag using the *new* Friendship Warms the Heart stamp set.

And I had so much fun creating a sweet little scene using the *new* Snow Friends and Wagon Add-on 2 stamp sets!!   The tree was die cut and embossed.  I cut snow drifts out of glittered chipboard paper and added some 'real' snowballs using white pom-poms!!

I just adore this little Frosty the Snowman ... especially his hat with holly leaves and berries!

So, there you have it my friends!  A treat suitable for giving to anyone on your gift-giving list this season ... quick and easy to make -- you can whip up a couple of them to have on hand!!
