Christmas in July - Mickey Snowman Treat Container

Hi Everyone! Can you believe that we are halfway through the year already! Christmas will be here in no time! Before it gets here, I want to share with you today a Mickey Snowman Treat Container that I made this past Christmas.  I made 15 of them for my hubby to give to his co-workers. I put together a Starbucks Cocoa Mix, Marshmallows, Chocolates and a Candy Cane to put in each container.

For the container, I used American Crafts Adobe Design Paper. I found a 25 sheet package at Tuesday Morning for only  $1.99. I made the container using my ScorPal and ScorTape.  I found the Mickey Snowman pattern at Disney I printed it on heavy card stock and cut it out to use as a template. I traced the snowman bodies and Mickey ears on white and black card stock.  I made my own template for the arms and nose and traced them as well. I cut all the pieces by hand.  For the scarf, I used Basic Grey Snowman Clear Stamp Set. I colored it with Copics and added Hero Arts Ultrafine Prisma Glitter. For the snowman eyes and mouth, I punched  1/16 inch holes in the snowman body template and used it as a guide to draw them in with a Copic Black Liner Pen.  I added the rosy cheeks using Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. For the snowflake background, I used a snowflake embossing folder from Darice. The polka dot ribbon is from Target's Dollar section. I used the Martha Stewart Scallop Snowflake Border Punch to make the border. 
Here's a closer look! I think they came out pretty cute. My hubby and everyone he gave them to loved them, which made me so very happy!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I really do love hearing what you think of my projects!
I hope you all are enjoying the summer and staying cool. It is a hot one here again today in Southern California.  Maybe if I sing some Christmas Carols and have a snow cone, I'll feel a little bit cooler!
Big Hugs,
