Snuggles in a Box

 I love to snuggle in cold weather don't you? I think Snowmen do too.  These are a set of three paper mache round boxes. They are so much fun to play with. You can paint paper mache, use paper clay on them or decoupage. 
 The paper on the box is a Glitz paper pack and its the not a holiday paper pad. So many of the paper pads are versatile. The dots and strips reminded me of a Victorian Christmas pattern.  I use Washi Tape  for around the lid edge. Quick and easy when your short on time for that last minute gift..C'mon we all have them... 
 Finishing up I used our fabulous collage sheets in "Snow Snuggles" (2921) for the side and top of box, along with Big Brush and gems.  

Perfect for stacking and don't forget the candy!

Happy Creating,
Melanie Statnick


  1. very sweet! add socks or hot chocolate packets for the inside!

  2. Such a sweet box Melanie, and the possibilities of what you can fill it with are endless! It's also a wonderful idea if you had a couple of different sizes to simply stack/display as part of your holiday decor. xx

  3. Adorable--and oh no, don't forget the candy!!!


  4. Wonderful idea for gift giving. I vote for filling it with chocolates. :)

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
