Snowman Ornament

Hey there, everyone!!  Here's a project I shared on the AWDML blog last Wednesday!

I have a super easy and fun Snowman Ornament to share with you today! It would look cute on the front of a card, too!

Start with a strip of paper about 1 3/4" wide and 12" long. Punch the edge of your strip with a scallop edge punch.


Now, using your scoring board, score the strip at every "indent" in the scallop. If you don't have a scallop punch, score at every 1/4".

Accoridan fold your strip and punch a circle from a piece of scrap paper.
 
 
Now, glue the ends of your strip together, Press it down in the center to create a rosette and secure with hot glue.
 
Now, simply decorate your snowman with a hat, eyes and nose. I decorated the hat with a scrap piece of ric-rac, some punched branches and some paint to make the holly berries. Just a hint-- add the berries at the VERY end of your project. Otherwise, you may end up dragging your hair through it and then trying to fix it (in my case you may repeat the scenario THREE times!). Also, add a piece of twine, ribbon or craft wire to the back of your snowman to hang it from.



Isn't he super cute?!?! One of my favorite parts of this project is that every single piece of paper used was a scrap! The ric-rac and twine were also scraps! I love when you can create something cute with scraps!

Thanks for stopping by today! I have another cute snowman to share with you soon, so make sure you come back!
