Addicted to Scrapping New Year's Eve Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  The Addicted to Scrapping Design Team is hosting a New Year's Eve blog hop.  We hope our projects will inspire you to start the new year off in a creative way.  

I created a set of snowman nesting boxes.

The boxes started out like this...

I picked mine up at Blue Moon Scrapbooking.  I then painted them with white acrylic paint and sprayed them with LSG Creme Brulee Cream Starburst Spray.

I created the snowman's hat first.

I used some blue ruffle trim from the Webster's Pages Trendsetter Collection and some black beads that I had in my stash.  The paper roses were created using the Rolled Rose Die-Namics by MFT.  I used black cardstock that I sprayed with LSG Scintillating Silver Glitz Spritz.  I show you exactly how I put my hat together in the video I created (the link is listed below).

I then painted the snowman's face using the end of a paintbrush to create the dots.

My snowman has a very classy scarf. ;)  I used some black scallop lace that I had in my stash. I used black felt by MFT and the Simply Scallops Border Die-Namic by MFT to create the scarf band around the middle box.  The "brooch" was created with some of the Webster's Pages trim and a black rhinestone Flower Center by Prima.

I used the Large Rolled Rose Die-Namic by MFT to create the buttons for my snowman.  I hot-glued a black bead from the trim I used on the hat as the center of my buttons.

I created a video to show you exactly how I created my snowman, click HERE.
