Copy Cat Snowman Gift



Welcome back!  I was so inspired a few days ago when I saw some awesome snowmen by Laurie Furnell Designs. *UPDATE** I immediately downloaded the free printable in 2011 but now I see it is no longer available.  You can go to her Etsy site for a buck and get the download!  It is well worth it!

Counting all my nieces and nephews on one hand is impossible.  I would need more than four hands.   Christmas can be very challenging, and, as I love them all, it can get very costly!  I  like to give them each a little something so I bought a case of popcorn and other supplies and got to work.
plaid scarf

case of popcorn

photo paper (lots)

stretchy gloves
I printed it onto photo paper.   Trim off the excess at the black lines.  Place the popcorn in the paper, fold it around, and tape the back. 


I cut my plaid scarves into many plaid scarves.  Cut each scarf about 1 1/2 inches wide.


I tied the scarf around the snowman....careful you don't want to choke the little guy.  I put the stretchy glove on my hand and then put the other one on top, so that they get a pair of gloves out of the deal.  This becomes the hat.
Grab some ribbon from your stash and tie the toque.  


All 32 of them.  I made a few extra for friends!



Cheers!

    1. Hi Cindy! Sorry I just saw your email today. I went to my web site and saw the link was no longer so I went to Alenka's web site and I guess she no longer offers it for free. You can still get freebies from her though. Here is her link http://alenkasprintables.com/wrappers.html I subscribe to her emails so I am always getting free printables Here is a direct link to her 25 days of free printables for Christmas. http://alenkasprintables.com/25DaysofChristmas.html Hope this helps you out!!
