A Stolen Snowman Idea!

A few of you who came to class last Friday saw this cute little ornament in person. I "borrowed" the idea from another demonstrator from the Stampin' Up! website. As a demonstrator, there are a few secret places where Stampin' Up! shares demonstrator ideas that customers don't get to see. So, when I saw this I had to make one and share it!! The container is from the craft store that starts with the "M." It's a wedding favor tin with a clear lid that opens. Inside I put Ski Slope designer series paper, and some torn Whisper White for the snow. Then the snowman is made from 1/2" circle punches for the head, and 3/4" circle punches for the body. You punch out 4 or 5 of each circle, fold them in half, and glue dot them together so they fan out! I cut a little hat from back cardstock and dimensionaled (is that a word?! - but you know what I mean!) it on top. The dimensionals helped to pop the hat out!! And the "Riding Hood Red Taffeta" scarf is squeezed in between! The cool glitter on the outside is from the Chunky Glitter set. You will definitely be seeing that in an upoming class!! Love it!! A piece of Baja Blue Grosgrain is wrapped around the edges and ties way up top to make the "hanger" part.
I hope your week is off to a good start!
Happy Stampin'
