Frosty

Hello Friends! I hope you are all well! We've been fighting the yucky cold bug in my house...we've all had our turn! Hopefully it will be on it's way out soon! I wanted to share something that turned out really fun! I've made a bundle of these Frostys to sell at the Christmas Market this Saturday(and if any of you...Susanne are around, I'd love to see you!!). I've seen several different snowmen in the stamping world, but I think most of my inspiration came from Dawn Griffith. She made some cute cards and wrapped some candy bars, but I thought he would make a super cute topper for a little treat!
I started with a ww tope note-cut with my Big Shot. Next came the two black pieces for the hat, and then the punches started!:) I love them...as you all know and boy, they sure made this little project fun! The eyes: 3 -1" circles, one cut in half for eyelids and 2- 3/4" black circles marked with a little white gel pen. The nose: 1 pumpkin pie 3/4" cut in half. The mouth: 6 black 1/4" circles attached with mini glue dots! I stamped merry christmas in black ink on real red, and used the word window punch to add a little red to his brim! The last punch I used was for the flowers on the hat, the three for you punch, since it is 3 flowers, you just need to punch 1 time!:) Yea for multiple punches! I used the SU small cello bags, added my kinder egg, and then stapled the bag to the back of the ww top note, then I used my ATG-or sticky strip would be great too, to attach the front of the top note to the cello bag, so no staples show in the front. Oh, I can't forget the dazzling diamonds! I used a two way glue pen to glitify his eyelids.

Fun huh? I'll hopefully get to share a few more things before Saturday...busy busy bee!! Hope you have a great day!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
