Sweet Treats for the Holidays Artwork, Sale & FREE Gift!

Filed under Christmas, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper

We’re revisiting an adorable (tiny!) Christmas miniature scene by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper! I thought of this project as all the little wrapping papers and trims from the current kit would be cute displayed in (with?) a little wheelbarrow like in Shannon’s artwork.

As there’s a new sale collection based on Shannon’s supply list (and some substitute items to use in making a similar scene AND todays new items) everything in Shannon’s project is on sale!

While waiting for the spray painted tins to dry (hint: check the bottom of this post for what that’s about), I dug around in my bin of Things That Should Be Used to find a super cute resin wheelbarrow and thought, “I wonder how much stuff can be crammed in there?”

Quite a lot, as it turns out! Red & white lollipops, star cookies, a gumball machine, canisters of candy, a cookie sheet of tiny gingerbread people, even an itty bitty tree! All I really did was paint the wheelbarrow, put a bit of floral foam in the bottom, add ALL THE THINGS, then fill in with white pom poms.

I also discovered an unfinished wooden tool box and stuffed it with goodies, too.

NOTE: that particular tool box has sold out but I’ve added TWO alternatives to the sale… more info below!

After painting the wooden toolbox, I added little bits of polymer clay inside, put easter basket grass on top of that, then stuck red and white candy canes, green, red, and white candy canes, and more lollipops into the clay. The snow people are from the Christmas Cookies Large Polymer Clay Slice Mix (and are adorable)!

And there you have it! Paint. Fill. Done!

Great job, Shannon!! See the wide photo below a close-up of the 2 jam-packed items in the foreground. (Plus it didn’t get much attention, but the large tree uses one of the Peppermint Pairs Buttons Set as a topper (cute)!

You can see more photos on Shannon’s blog post. And here’s her supply list. (Plus see below for more info on the related new sale!)

New Christmas Miniatures

Starting with that cute Miniature Red Resin Bow shown at left (on one of the Brass Button Covers or Mini Tins). Just a happy accident that they work so well together!

Plus the Resin Holly & Berry Embellishment and Tiny Holiday Greetings below are equally cute! (That text set includes 3 greetings, each in 2 sizes. That “Happy Holidays” has a fun Mid-Century feel.)

BONUS: all of these new trims are included in today’s sale! More info below.
