My fellow administrative assistants in the district each received one of these tealight snowmen from the "Christmas Elf". The Elf says "Easy Peasy if you have the right tools!" That would be a Big Shot or Cuttlebug, some circle dies, a 1 1/2" circle punch, 1" square punch, snowflake punch, word window punch, oh, and a heart punch - sounds like the Elf got a little punchy - heh, heh!
You also need....... a battery operated tealight (1 1/2" in diameter which is probably standard size, but the Elf wasn't sure about that.), some ribbon for a scarf, a little floss for the hat band and a couple of Sharpie markers.
The Elf used an orange Sharpie on the flame of the tealight first so that the tealight would appear orange when unlit as well as lit. A 1/8" strip of cs was added to the bottom edge of the tealight with sticky tape to make a little lip. Then the circles were die cut and the edges sponged with Marina Mist ink.
The twig arms were made from pieces of the snowflake punch and were adhered to the underside of the smaller circle with dimensionals so the layers of the snowman would have some dimension. Holding the two circles together, the Elf used the circle punch to make room for the tealight and then slipped them on resting right on the lip. The ribbon scarf was tied around the tealight and trimmed.
The hat was simply made with the 1" square and word window punches with a little bit of red floss wrapped around for the band, then adhered to the top of the tealight. The eyes, mouth, and buttons were added with the black Sharpie. The finishing touch is the punched heart.
This is half the crew below.
The Christmas Elf also brought some sweetness to the 75 staff members at school. Left them in the mailboxes.
