Every year I make a small something for all the people in my husband's area at work. I've made boxes of covered Hershey Nuggets, handmade dish soap, Santa candy bars, stamped on candles, well you get the idea. Time was quickly running out, when I remembered an idea I saw last year. Popcorn snowmen! That wrapper had a pre-printed face, but I decided to make mine with punches instead.
The eyes are 3/4" circle punch and the mouth is 1/2" punch. The carrot nose was just hand cut and all glued on using the Dimensional Glue (539) from Sparkle N Sprinkle. It comes in a bottle with a small pointed opening, which was perfect for all those little circles. It's also a little thicker, not runny and stays in place. It made completing these in front of the TV a snap :)
The hats are just a pair of stretchy gloves tied off with a bit of seam binding to make the fingers into fringe.
And there they are. All 66 of them :)
Rod passed them out yesterday and said they were a big hit. In fact, we were at a company function at the beginning of the month and I was introduced to one of his co workers. She said, "Oh, so you're the one who makes the cute stuff for us every year." When Rod promptly said, " Hey, what makes you think that it's not me?" lol. Anyway, since the gifts are just small tokens, it really was sweet to think that the gesture is appreciated.
So, if you need a last minute gift-y, or an idea for next year...There ya go!
