Inspired by Buttons

This week, at Creative Inspirations Paint, we are being inspired by buttons.  I am starting to get together some ideas for our craft show and this is one of the projects I'm considering.  It's a hot chocolate pouch.  I'm not sure I care for the design.  I was going for a partially melted snowman.  He's been painted with CI Paint 'Blue Ice' and his nose with 'Sunshine'.  And of course, he has 2 button eyes. 

 The back has this adorable image from Tammy at A Day For Daisies.  She's been colored with Prismacolor Pencils.  I've also used a Martha Stewart border punch.
The ribbon is tucked down inside and looped around the hot chocolate to hold it in place.  When you pull the ribbon up it pulls the packet out. 
Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!

  1. You should be careful, putting hot chocolate inside a snowman, he will melt! (Sorry, couldn't resist that one), but then as you were going for a partially melted snowman perhaps that was what you were hoping!

    Lovely gift idea.
