Merry Christmas!

Great things come in small packages.These snowmen hold VandeWall's chocolate bars, sold to me as a fundraiser for my Nephew Nathan.  I made them for all the staff at school:

Stamps: none
Paper: Be of Good Cheer, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink: none
Accessories:  1" Square Paper Punch, Star Punch from Merry Mini Punch Pack, Pennant Punch, 1/2" Circle,  Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer, Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die

I used Lisa Young's ideas, but changed them for this year. I found it really easy to make these using my paper trimmer as my scorer. I could cut and score at the same time! Very cool.

My candy bars are local (Appleton, WI) favories, so I had to develop my own template. I did so by placing the candy bar on graph paper and then working out how big it should be. I wanted it easy to cut as a 1/4 sheet of paper. It worked. I found that my SNAIL didn't stick so well over time in the dry WI air. However, the sticky strip held and everyone at work loved them.

Wishing you all a safe and happy Christmas Season.

 Happy Stamping!
