Wine charms

Hi everybody, this is probably gonna be my last post for the Holidays.  I'm going away to see family and I won't have my craft room!
I made these little wine charms with Shrinky Dinks.  I welded the snowman from Doddlecharm with the hat from Paper Doll Dress up.  I then cut them with my Expression at Blade depth 6, speed 3, pressure 5 and multi cut at 3.  I colored with Copics and then shrunk them with my heat gun.  Much faster this way, you just have to be careful!
Before shrinking them
 I used Staz-on ink for the Peachy Keen stamp faces.  You have to remember to punch a hole before shrinking them!
Close up with the cute PKS face!

WAW, everything is suddenly so big!!!

The charms with beads.
 The snowflakes are from Accent Essentials.  The first snowmen I did, I totally forgot to use my PKS faces:(  I just colored them with Copics!

 The Santa stamps are from Stampin' Up.  They were cut with Create a Critter.  The beads, wire hoop, jump rings and spacer are from Michaels.  Can you believe how cute those spacers are?!!!  They look like tiny gold ornament.  I had to use pliers to finish the hoop so that the beads don't fall off and to keep it close.
The gift box to put all of them.

Decorated box.
For the box, I used a piece that I already made for another project.  You can see it here.  The snowflake is from the Winter Lace cartridge cut at 4".  I then added ton of Stickles in pink and put bling with my I-Rock.
This gift is for my mother-in-law.  She's receiving for Christmas and there's gonna be a lot of us!!!  Don't want to mix those drinks up, lol!!!
Hope you all have a great Holiday.
