How to Make It

  1. Using our patterns, cut out the snowman and tag back from card stock, and the hat, scarf, and tag front from decorative papers. Ink all edges with gold.
  2. Overlap the shapes so they fit inside the card-stock snowman and attach with glue dots. Ink the edges with gold. Brush a thin coat of glue on the snowman and, while the glue is wet, sprinkle with glitter.
  3. Use glue dots to attach the scarf and hat. Use mini glue dots to attach a pom-pom to the tip of the hat and beads for the eyes.
  4. Use double-stick adhesive tape to attach the snowman to a slightly larger black card-stock snowman and to attach the patterned tag to a slightly larger black card-stock tag. Set an eyelet at the top of the tag.
  5. Use double-stick foam tape to attach the snowman to the tag with the twig arms in between.
  6. Slip a length of wire through the eyelet, forming corkscrew shapes at the ends.
  7. Note: We slipped a small piece of greenery between tag and package for extra holiday cheer.
