Mr. Snoman and rub on snowflakes

Mr. Snowman is the last of the four sizzlet dies that come in that christmas set. I can't decide which one I like the best! Anyway, I decided to put Mr. Snowman on a Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino bottle since I have quite a collection of bottles (wonder how?). Anyway, to dress up the bottle, I used rub-ons by SU called Word Flurries. Love the snowflakes! These rub-ons are easy to apply. Remember to cut them out from the sheet before you apply with the stick (included in the pack) so you won't get any unwanted rub-ons your project! Here's a closer look at the rub-ons and Mr. Snowman. I used a skinny strip of Kiwi Kiss CS to cover the top of the bottle and then wrapped gold cord on the bottom of it so the CS won't come off. Sometimes even when you put real good adhesive on it, it somehow works its way out and unfolds.I love the new striped 1 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, don't you? Be on the look out for a new SU promotion for rub-ons coming on November 10th.

Can you see Mochiko hiding in my packing paper? I got a couple of boxes in today and she just loved camping out in the paper. My folks got a kick out of her sitting there for a couple of hours. She must've thought she was playing hide and seek and no one came to find her! haha! My funny kitty.
Thanks for visiting me today. I will be sharing some awesome raks that I received soon and possibly a sneak peek of the gift card holders!

You are hooked to the Sizzix dies just like me. Unfortunately I have not time to use any of them yet.

Mr. Snowman looks very cute on the bottle and as always Mochiko is such a ham.
