Cindee designed this great project, and she got the Ghirardelli Chocolate square snack size packs at Target.  I’ve been to Target 4 times and keep forgetting to look for more of these!!!!!  geesh!  I really want to make some to send in to my hubby’s office and to give to neighbors this year!! I was also thinking about the ladies at the post office!!

After die cutting lots of boughs and pine cones, I found it easiest to punch a 1″ circle and layer the boughs and pine cones onto it with liquid glue.  After tying the Cherry Cobbler striped ribbon around the Ghirardelli packet, I added the pine boughs on the circle to the packet.

We also used Puff Paint on the boughs to look like snow!!  We added some vellum boughs to the Garden Green and Soft Sea Foam cardstock bough pieces for a variety of color.

The pinecones are die cut with Soft Suede and Crumb Cake cardstock.

The finishing touch was 3 red Glitter Dot “berries” from the Toile Tidings Enamel Glitter Dot pack.
