Here are some additional ideas as well!

  • Incorporate yarn into your project.
  • That gorgeous pail reminds me of heat embossing in silver.
  • Felt could help recreate the warmth and coziness.
  • Any of the stitching dies would be a great addition!

I am sure that many of you will come up with even more ideas!  Take a piece of this inspiration (or others you have discovered) and create something fabulous!  We look forward to seeing all of your creations!
