I saw these cute snowmen on several sites with someone saying that they were oldies but goodies. Yet, I've never seen them before and thought maybe it might be the same for some of you.
Mine is a simple version since Christmas is just around the corner. Cut a piece of white card stock 6" by 9". It will fit around a full size individual microwave popcorn bag, before you pop it of course. :) Draw the eyes and mouth pretty much in the middle of the piece of paper. If it would make you feel more comfortable wrap it around the bag first and then draw the face. Add a Pumpkin Pie triangle for the nose and some Pink Pirouette ink to the cheeks with a dauber.
Now comes the tricky part to explain. Take one sock and fold the top of the sock inside the toe section. Take the second sock and wrap it around the snowman's head. While holding the second sock in place pull the folded sock over the the snowman's head covering completely the second sock. Tie a ribbon at the top of the hat and at his neck. You can also add a tag...I still may if I have time.
These can also be done with children's socks or mittens. You might want to try a mini bag of popcorn or a hershey's candy bar depending on the size of the socks or gloves. I think these are cute for the child in all of us.
