Snowman Altoids tin

OK...I admit it. I'm a punch junkie. Is there a 12 step program? Most of my stamping friends will tell you it is true...probably even most of my customers! I'm always enticing them to purchase the newest punch!

Well, you should know that if I made a Santa, I'm going to have to try to make a Snowman! I LOVE snowmen! This one is completely my design. I played around with different punches until I liked the rectangle snowman face! Again, I've made up several for my craft show, but now I'm all out of Altoid tins! I will need to start saving them up again...lol! At least I know if they don't sell, I'll have my gift card packaging all done.

Pretty much is self-explanatory by the picture, but I did cut the scarf "fringe" after I crimped it. The leaves of the holly are cut from the 5 petal punch. The berry is punched from red Faux Diamond Dust paper. The whites in the eyes were drawn with a white gel pen. I did wrap ribbon around the sides and covered the back and insides with Designer paper.

I'm wondering if I should fill these with candy or anything for the craft show....what do you think? Annette mentioned a deck of cards, but they don't fit.

These are darling! How about red and white, and green and white round peppermint candies? I'd also include your business card underneath the candies. Thank you so much for sharing.

OMG these are precious! I am going to have to make some as well. What great party favors for little ones or accordian albums!

Thanks for posting! I will definitely give credit where credit is due!

These are absolutely adorable. I'm thinking of making these along with creating a few with various pumpkin faces.
