Since our theme for this Crafty Creations Challenge is Not A Card, with a theme like that, at this time of the year, that means I could come up with a lot of great ideas. But since I love Christmas I decided to make an ornament. 
I also decided to use something that I have saved over the last few months,
 so I guess you can say this is a recycle project.
I used a lid from the round box that the Laughing Cow Cheese comes in (there are probably other brands out on the market but that is what I buy most of the time.)

and this is what I made

I thought this would look great on the Christmas tree or maybe somewhere  it might get center stage.

I covered the box inside and out with blue CS, stamped that cute snowman and fussy cut him out.Next I added a glittered snowbank at his base. Since I added strips of CS to the inside and the outside rim of the top, I noticed there was a gap on the edge so I used a hot glue gun on the rim and dipped that hot glue in glitter. Looks icy now and the gap on the rim is all covered up.

I added a little something to the back as well for that finishing touch.

Please join the challenge over at Crafty Creations - you could be the next winner. The challenge is Bi-Weekly and will end on September 26.

Also, please check out the other designers projects over at Crafty Creations , they are all really cool. Lots of creative ideas.
