Sometimes the simplest of crafts can claim the most attention, this snowman, made completely out of cardstock is certainly one of those projects.
- Core’dinations Cardstock, Core’dinations Tim Holtz® & Ranger® Adirondack 12 x 12 Paper Pack
- Sand-it Gadget sanding block
- Snowflake Embossing Folder
- Striped Embossing Folder
- Polka Dot Embossing Folder
- Embossing Machine
- Glue Glider Adhesive
- Mini-brads (two, for the eyes)
The first thing you will want to do, is cut out circles for the body of the paper snowman. You will need three graduated sizes of circles. I used a light grey Core’dinations Cardstock for this.
Cut a small circle for the head, a medium circle for the middle, and 4 large circles for the snowman’s bottom.
Trim the bottoms of the large circles, so the snowman will be able to “stand” on a flat surface.
Then take the middle circle, and all four large circles, and emboss them using a snowflake embossing folder. DO NOT emboss the small circle, it will be the head, and I found it was distracting to have the “face” embossed.
When the “body” of the snowman is sanded, it is time to assemble it.
Repeat with remaining two large circles. This will create a stable, 3-D base for your snowman.
Using punches, a craft machine, or hand-cutting – create scarves, hats, boots, gloves…whatever you desire for your snowman.
After you give your snowman “arms,” tie them with a section of jute.
You could make your cute paper snowman a whole family to hang out with.
Simple and sweet.
