OK WELL HERE IT IS 2 days past Christmas and maybe you are still looking for a card to send or needing to send something or just wanting to play or you have some January birthdays coming up well Dawn ( of course and STAMPING UP) have this weird looking but adorable die that makes the cutest little critters…. this one is a snowman but if you check out her videos you will also see jack-0-lantern and scarecrow made using this die…you do need to cut two of them to make the little dimensional box…
THIS IS THE DIE….
AND THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE CRITTERS IT WILL MAKE…
Is that CUTE OR WHAT….and now I know you are going oh I don’t have that die… well fear not you can just look at this photo and make a one dimensional version..it won’t hold any peppermints ( what I put in mine) but a couple of circles a square a few other pieces and bingo you have a snowman that is flat for on a card…or make two and glue them together and put a string in the top and you have an ornament… however , should Santa have left you funds that you can’t wait to spend….if you go look on her web site you will see that using this same die she made a Jack-o-lantern, and a Scarecrow…both just as adorable as this Snowman….
Here is the link….DAWN’S CURVY KEEPSAKE SNOWMAN…watch to see what pieces she uses and remember that you can also use circle dies for the circles and squares for the squares and a piece of post it note to hold that square in case your corner rounder is bigger than the one she used….works just fine… and one last HINT…I found pre-made bows in Michaels in the sticker area…but you can also tie a ribbon into a bow and stick it on…..and SHE STUCK HER’S on the top of body flap…. however I think it looks better if you stick to the bottom of your circle… also MICHAELS HAD tons of clothespins in colors and sizes… again in the sticker , or Tim Holtz section… my kids loved it and I am making a few more for friends we are taking out to dinner on NEW YEAR’S EVE….
So just to keep you motivated…check this out and ENJOY… AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPING BY...wire headed cyber toad…aka kath
