Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Since thankfulness is the theme of the hop, I would love to say that I am so thankful for so many things. Today's post will focus on the Stampin' Up!® demonstrators who have signed up under me and become my dear friends. Since I will see many of them in November at our OnStage event, I wanted to show you the gift I will be making and sharing with each one in attendance. A great decoration for Christmas and it can be taken apart for use afterwards. My blog viewers in countries where it is warm for Christmas can even have a snowman for Christmas and it will not melt. Here is my snowman gift:
Acrylic blocks A, B and C were used in making this snowman. For the eyes, Metal Rimmed Pearls were colored black. I used a black permanent marker to do this. The nose was made with an enamel shape. Enamel shapes were also used for the mouth and buttons. Mittens and a gingerbread "cookie" were cut out of the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and adhered to the body with glue dots.
For the hat, a 1" circle punch was punched in basic black cardstock. A 1 3/4" circle punch was used to cut around that circle:
A basic black piece of cardstock was cut 1 1/4" by 3 1/4" and scored 1/4" along the long edge, snipped at the 1/4" side and adhered to make a circle:
The above snipped circle was placed in the middle of the first circle and adhered. Another 1 3/4" Circle was punched out, left whole and placed on the bottom so that the snipped edges do not show on the hat.
The snowman and his hat can then be decorated as you wish. I used This Christmas Specialty Designer Series paper for the hat ribbon as well as scarf. Mine is one example out of numerous examples.
