How to Make It
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Use double-stick foam tape to attach the snowman to the tag with the twig arms in between.
- Slip a length of wire through the eyelet, forming corkscrew shapes at the ends.
- Note: We slipped a small piece of greenery between tag and package for extra holiday cheer.
