SNOWMAN and CANDY Treat

December 14, 2013

Have I told you how much I lovel Stampin’ Up!‘s new Envelope Punch Board?  Well, I really do!

Isn’t this guy just the cutest?

Mr Snowman

 Here’s what you’ll need to put him together:  

  • CARD STOCK:  Whisper White, 5″ x 5″, Basic Black, 3/4″ x 3-1/4″, 2″ x 2-1/4″, scraps for punching eyes, mouth and buttons, Pumpkin Pie, small scrap for carrot nose, Silver Glimmer scrap for hat trim flower
  • MARKER:  Chalk Pen
  • TOOLS: Envelope Punch Board, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Owl Punch, Sticky Strip
  • ACCESSORIES:  Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding

Punch smallest envelope with the Punch Board.  Fold the long side to the center and punch through the two layers (gently) to separate the head from the body.

Punch on sides

Place a piece of Sticky Strip on each flap as shown in photo, fold up the smaller bottom flap to the inside and lay the left flap over the Sticky Strip to secure the back.

Apply sticky tape

Sponge the edges of both pieces of hat and attach as shown with Sticky Strip or Snail Adhesive.  Punch out pieces for eyes, mouth and buttons using the Owl Punch.  Attach eyes with Glue Dots.  Attach mouth with little bitty dots of Tombow Anywhere Glue.

Tombow Anywhere Glue for coal (mouth)

Tweasers help in setting the little mouth pieces in place.

Tweasers to help

Cut small piece from Pumpkin Pie card stock for nose.  Place buttons:  position one near the top of belly and one near the bottom using glue dots.  Then position the middle button so you’ll have even spacing.  Tie Cherry Cobbler scarf around his neck.  Using Chalk Pen, place little marks on eyes to give him some personality!  Punch out a flower using Silver Glimmer paper and the flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  Attach to hat brim with Glue Dot.

Button placement-top and bottom first

 You can slip a narrow mini sized candy bar or short candy cane in the back of the snowman.  It’s not wide enough for a Ghirardelli candy.

Ghirardelli's chocolates won't quite fit

 Again, here’s the finished snowman.  It takes only 10-15 minutes or so, once you have all your tools ready to go, to make this cute treat.
