By Golly! It's More Cosmo Cricket Projects!

Brrrrr!!!! What ever happened to global warming? Since cold weather makes for good paper craft time, here's some cool weather inspiration we hope warms your heart and inspires you to create. As mentioned in a previous post, Cosmo Cricket generously sponsored us by sending us the Jolly By Golly collection to work with. We hope you find oodles of inspiration to keep you busy while waiting for thing to thaw.

Here's a little project that would make the gift for anyone - neighbor, teacher, co-worker...etc. You could put hot chocolate mix or even tea bags in the gift box. Or better yet - stuff it with chocolate and you can't go wrong!
