Winter Twig Treats for You From GlueArts!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

A common wish in our household. In fact today the words, "we wish we had a snow day" was heard too!

In our neck of the woods, we've had quite a mild winter much to the disappointment of our children. (who are eyeing their new sleds they've yet to use!)

Designer Tamara Tripodi has a sweet winter treat that might soften the blow of little to no snow!!

GlueArts adhesives make creating this sweet treat as easy as 1, 2, 3!

 
Designer: Tamara Tripodi
Project: Winter treats door hanger


Supplies:
Little Yellow Bicycle Winter Twig Paper and embellishments
October Afternoon buttons
Paper crimper by Fiskars
Canvas corp fiber
White cardstock
Doorhanger die cut from svgcuts.com (or, you can use a wooden doorhanger from the hobby store)

Instructions:
Cut the doorhanger file from 'December Doorhangers' by svgcuts OR use a wooden/paper mache premade doorhanger. I just used the diecut file because it's really cute with the scalllops! The doorhanger back should be about 5.50" wide.

Create a box to go on the front with the snowflake print paper. Make the box 3.50" high, 1" deep and as wide as the door hanger. Adhere with Glue Arts perma tac.

On the front of the box layer two strips of paper. One using the light blue LYB snowflake print about 2.75" high. Adhere to box with Glue Arts perma tac. Trim a strip of solid white cardstock to 2.00" high. Pull it through a paper crimper and ink edges, Adhere with perma tac.

Embellish your door hanger with various buttons and die cut pieces (snowman, snowflakes, 'treats', bunny, etc.) I used some U-Cut it foam to pop up some of the die cuts!



Have fun embellishing it! Fill it with a few packs of hot cocoa, or even a couple candy bars and leave it on someones door for a fun surprise! Personalize it by adding someones name instead of the word 'treats'. Also, if you're making one with paper and not a wood or paper mache piece, it's best to layer 2-3 of them for durability.



Little Yellow Bicycle has a Brand New Release called Saturdays! Blues, browns, deniums and soft, coral reds fill this collection. Post a comment today about your favorite winter treat and for posting a comment we'll enter you to win Little Yellow Bicycle's Brand New Saturdays collection!!
Along with our Glue Glider PRO handle and your choice of our new PRO+ Cartridges! High Tac, Perma Tac, Repositionable or yes..Extreme Tac! Just post a comment and we'll select one random winner next Monday!

  2. Tamara Tripodi has done it again! This is such a cute project! I've never thought 2 add a box 2 a door hanger~lol! I'm feeling very inspired now! As of right now, I can't use svg cuts b/c I don't have a computer, but I do have a Cricut Expression~2 bad Cricut doesn't have a cartridge w/ door hangers 2 cut out~maybe I'll email them & suggest that, b/c I luv the hanger she used w/ the scallops! I'll probably just buy a few wooden ones from the craft store;) I'd luv 2 make these 2 give as gifts! There's so much u can do w/ these~the possibilities of all the "treats" u could put in them! That Little Yellow Bicycle collection is gorgeous 2! Thanx 4 sharing this amazing project w/ us! Loyal follower via GFC & FB! And thanx 4 the yummy giveaway:) ~prhmangel(at)gmail(dot)com

  17. This is a super cute project. I dont have a machine of anykind to do the cutting for me so I cut things by hand all the time. I will have to try doing something similiar. Thank you for the inspiration. I would have to say My favorite winter treat is a toss up between Egg nog and Sierra mist new winter drink with cranberry. I love them both but they only come out in the winter around Christmas. Thanks for the chance to win.

  20. Tamara is absolutely brilliant! We were less than happy with the snow situation too... usually we get a lot more than that! I like to bake more in winter and one of my faves is a home made apple crisp. My mother-in-law had a wonderful recipe she passed down, and it is the best ever. Great on a winter day!
