Copycat Snowmen

Welcome back!  I was so inspired a few days ago when I saw some awesome snowmen by Laurie Furnell Designs.  I immediately downloaded the free gift that Aimee Asher CLICK HERE  generously put out to all blog readers.  I joined her site and am very excited to see all of her wonderful creations.  
Counting all my nieces and nephews on one hand is impossible.  I would need more than four hands.   Christmas can be very challenging, and as I love them all, I like to give them a little something.  This was a life saver as I came across Aimee Ashers' site here.  I bought a case of popcorn and other supplies, and got to work.

case of popcorn

photo paper (lots)

stretchy gloves
I printed Aimee Ashers snowman freebie onto photo paper.  Trim off the excess at the black lines.   Place the popcorn in the paper, fold it around, and tape the back. 

I cut my plaid scarves into many plaid scarves.  Cut each scarf about 1 1/2 inches wide.

Tie the scarf around the snowman....careful you don't want to choke the little guy.  I put one stretchy glove on my hand and then put the other one on top, so that they get a pair of gloves out of the deal.  This becomes the hat.
Grab some ribbon from your stash and tie the toque.  

I made 32 of them.  A few extra for friends!

Pop on over to her site, and become a friend, cuz that's just polite, and sign up for her freebie and maybe have a browse through her designs.  I am headed back there right now!
Have a Great Day

  3. card stock would work great too, and i don't think it's as expensive as photo paper! brown kraft paper would make them reindeers!
