Baby, It's Cold Outside.....{MCT What a Treat Wednesday}

Good Morning and Happy Hump Day!!!

It is going to be a super busy day here on my blog and FB~ I have 2 posts for you today
~What a Treat Wednesday with MCT HERE
~Peachy Keen Stamp new October Challenge HERE
Peachy Keen has their new release starting at 10am and we are doing a fun FB hop HERE
I hope you will check out all of my projects :)

Now for today's projects! It is What a Treat Wednesday where the DT makes any container, treat and or packaging with My Creative Time stamps and dies!
So super fun considering I just LOVE to make holiday treats :)
While cruising Pinterest, I came across this project using Hersey Nuggets. I wanted to make my own version using my stamps and dies from MCT and this is what I came up with....
How super CUTE are these...right?? I totally got hooked and ended up making 5 BUT plan on making a bunch more!

For both of these I used the same packaging...clear pretzel bags that I cut down to the size I wanted. I topped each bag with the topper made from taking the XL Label Die and folding it in half...then layering the Stitched XL Label Die over it. 
Then using one of the sentiments from the You're So Cool stamp set, I stamped both onto the topper. To close the bags up, I wrapped some Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine around the toppers and tied a bow. Some enamel dots (yes I know I am obsessed with them...LOL) and the toppers were done.
Now for the snow men, I stamped each piece of cardstock~ measuring 1x3 with my Peachy Keen Faces. I added some color using my chalk and copics as well as my white gel pen. Then for their adorable hats, I used the fingers from old know the ones that seem to miss the other pair to make a set...LOL! We seem to have quite a few of those around...BUT these gloves can also be picked up at the Dollar Store :)
So I cut the fingers off each and then rolled up to make the mini hat. It was so adorable as is but for some extra cuteness I decided to make some matching Trendy Twine pom poms.
Totally completed this project I think!
