Cutie Patootie Snowmen!

Here's an idea I've seen all over on Pinterest. These adorable snowmen are made from three Hershey's Nuggets and are the perfect little gift for coworkers, or for stocking stuffers! I made a bunch of these for my school teacher daughter to give to her colleagues, as well as some for my stamping friends, and to share with some special people at OnStage today.

They really aren't difficult to make. The three white paper strips are 1-1/8" x 3" and you stamp the face from the snowman in the middle of one strip first. Use a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to ink just the face part of the snowman. It's easy to see where you will stamp since it's a photopolymer set. Color the nose (Peekaboo Peach used here) and wrap firmly around the nugget. I used Tear & Tape to secure the end.

Stamp the hat in Basic Black, the scarf in Cherry Cobbler, apply ink to the holly berry cluster with Cucumber Crush and Cherry Cobbler markers and stamp. Cut out with coordinating dies and adhere with liquid glue.

Wrap the other two nuggets the same way and glue the black buttons (1/4" circle punch) with liquid glue.

The tray they rest in is a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock 1-3/4" x 4", scored at 3/8" on both long sides. Fold up the sides, put the nuggets in, slide in a pretzel bag, and tie with baker's twine.
