I wanted to make some quick holiday themed treats for teachers today and decided to get out my Punches, Cello Tube Bags and play!
I got the idea for the punch art Snowman’s from my wonderful and ultra talented team member, Darla Watson…I tweaked him and added a few things of my own and attached him on top of a Cello Bag with white M&Ms inside, and here he is…
Isn’t that adorable? He is so much fun to make and you can get a real production line going if you want to make a few of them!
You need the following punches to make the basic shape – click on the blue words below to view/order in the online store…
To make the basic snowman head:
- Head – punch a circle out of Whisper White cardstock using the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch
- Hat brim – use your Decorative Label punch to punch a shape out of black cardstock and use your paper trimmer to cut the brim to size
- Hat body – use your Curly Label punch to punch a shape out of black cardstock and use your paper trimmer to cut it in half
- Adhere all those together – I used Dimensionals – and there you have your basic snowman head
You can draw his mouth and eyes onto the face using a Black Marker OR you can do as I did and use stamps – I used stamps from the set Stylin’ Snowfolk (pg 16 of the main Catalog) to stamp his mouth, nose, scarf and cute bird – this set allows you to stamp very cute snowmen or just their features and the stamps are perfectly sized for this project…
I cut the scarf out using my sharp Paper Snips and I punched out the bird using my 3/4″ Circle Punch…
I then filled a 1″ x 8″ Cello Bag with white M&Ms that I found in Target, sealed the top and attached my Snowman to the top of it using a Dimensional – the bags are a FABULOUS bargain at just $2.50 for a pack of 50 of them!!!
And that is it! One quick, easy, economical and FUN treat to make & give!
