12 DAYS 'TIL CHRISTMAS WRAP IT UP COUNTDOWN, Snowman Coffee Treat Holders...

What do you do when you totally forgot that you need 12 small gifts for your Bunco group the NEXT night?  Luckily, it was the Petite Pocket Die to the rescue!  Starbucks had a great sale on their Via Christmas Blend coffee packets on Thursday, so I bought a couple of boxes and decided to design a holder for them. 

Since some of our members are Jewish, etc., I wanted to stay holiday neutral.  I knew I wanted to use snowmen and the Snow Much Fun stamp set is one of my favorites!  I did some of the coffee holders in a blue version as well, but I forgot to photograph them before bringing them to my Bunco Friday night.  Oops!

I used the same coloring method with the Dazzling Diamonds that I did with my Shimmery Snowman Buddies card.  To add a little more bling, I even added some Dazzling Diamonds on the edge.  But there still wasn't enough bling!  So I cut two more flaps from Silver Glimmer Paper for the inside and outside of the flap.  Here is a shot of the back, so you can see it.  I opted to use a half velcro dot for the closure.
