Default TLC457 ~ Snowman tag/bookmark {11/25/13}



Happy Monday, everybody!!
A super-simple technique challenge for you from me this month , and one that's useful at this time of year to have on hand for Christmas gift-wrapping - a snowman tag/bookmark .
I first made these many, many years ago when I used to mind my BFF's two young children. So long ago I don't even have a photo of my first ones! They make a fun gift tag. I almost always give books as gifts to my nieces and nephews, and so long as you don't make your snowmen too bulky they make perfect bookmarks too. The hats and scarves are a great way to use up some of those small scraps we all have lying around.


I've attached a tutorial at the bottom of this post in both Word and pdf format, which will give you the measurements I used for mine, and general guidelines. Also THIS LINK should take you to the same tutorial in Google Docs, for any who use that. Feel free to ring the changes but do use the tutorial as your jumping-off point . I'm not looking for tags with snowmen stamped on them .
If you have any trouble opening them please post on this thread and I'll respond ASAP.

The pictures in the tutorial show versions I've made in the past.
For my samples for today I made two new ones: one is a totally flat bookmark style one, apart from tying a little snowflake button onto the fibres in the hat.
I decided to also try out a top-hatted version. This one is definitely NOT book-safe, as I used the same ribbon that I used on his hat to tie around the "neck" for a scarf, and added buttons, wobbly eyes and gems to finish him off.


Here's a link to my two Snowmen Tags .

And here's a link to our super-fun Snowman Tag/Bookmark gallery - let's hope they don't all start a snowball fight in there.

When you've created your card upload it to the gallery and then come back and link it here so we can all see it! You get more views and comments if you link on the thread .

If you're not sure how to link a card to this thread, here's how:
1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Exclamation Gallery link

I'm told there's a problem with the gallery link. Not sure why as it works for me when I'm logged in. Hopefully once someone else uploads a tag with the keyword it will be fine. I'll check it out when I get home from work, 9 am Eastern time.
In the meantime the link to my upload works even when I'm logged out, and it's also an attachment at the foot of the post.
Sorry for any problems!

The link didn't work for me earlier, but I guess Vicky's upload did the trick - it's working fine now! I added my Have a Heart Snowman to the gallery, too...

Actually I had my new ones in Bookmarks too, but when they weren't showing for people in the gallery I put them into my Member gallery .

I had fun with this challenge. Thanks Sabrina for the push. I ended up making 3 different snowmen. My favorite of mine is the one with the burlap hat.
