It's Monday again :)

Project #3 ~ Toilet Paper Snowman

Isn't he a cutie?

His body is made using toilet paper rolls easily covered with fabric!
There's minimal sewing involved - just his nose & his hat (if you want).
I used the sleeve from a child's sweater for the hat on mine :)

Snowman Pin * Ready for Gift Giving

I thought my Snowman Pins would make cute little holiday gifts for teachers, co-workers, the Bunco girls and more.

I designed a matchbook holder in Sure Cuts ALot and used my Cricut to cut it out. The snowflake was cut from a true type font also on my Cricut & applied to the matchbook with a dimensional dot.

You could write a holiday greeting on the inside of the holder.

These pins are available at my Etsy
