Paper Snowmen

SNOW DAY??? Have fun….

Hi friends, so I wanted to explain about my little faux pas… you see I often try to create my blog posts on the weekends when I have a bit more time to write, edit, take photos, and upload to wordpress here. I often schedule blog posts in advance… and well- just wanted you to know the wish list post from last night about 10 pm I meant to schedule it for 7 am… not sure how I messed that up, but well, I wanted you to know that I make mistakes too.. sorry! anyway, on to today’s post, hope you have time to create this cute little snowman.

 

This was an awesome post from the Stampin’ Up! blog, I’ve been under the weather and haven’t really created anything new, need to get my club cards prepped, hope to do so tonight. I also still owe you photos of my grab bag from last weekend, will take those later too. Enjoy!!

 

Remember our 3D paper pumpkin project from a few weeks ago? Now you can create fun paper snowmen using the same technique!

Paper Snowmen1

One snowman takes about thirty minutes to make—and they’re super-easy to put together. Make one for Christmas . . . then change his hat and get him ready for Valentine’s Day!

You could also put these snowmen to work as cute package toppers or place card holders for table settings. Or gather together your kids or grandkids together for a fun little party making snowmen families to decorate your home.

Create the hat using a 2-1/4″ circle, a 1-1/2″ circle, and 1-1/2″ x 5″ strip of cardstock or Designer Series Paper. Make the snowman’s body using 2-3/4″, 2-1/4″, and 1-7/8″ circles (or whatever size you wish)! Use the Owl Punch for eyes and the Bird Punch to make the nose and mouth. Easy!
