On a packaging kick...free snowman box templates...and who and what inspired these....

snowman box 3c


I am working on all kinds of fun projects and took some extra time this weekend to make these special little boxes that I think would make cool place settings at a dinner party or house special little candy treats for guests as they leave....Imagine a bunch of these on a cool dessert table with all kinds of cake stands all in white.....or perhaps you can host a snowman building event in your backyard when it snows and give these out to all the people that participate....maybe use the snowballs to write 1st place, 2nd place, etc....
