Punch Board Snowman

by Jackie Topa

Use a punch board to shape this adorable snowman treat holder.

Supplies

  • Cardstock (Stampin' Up® Thick Whisper White, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, and Basic Black cardstock used here)
  • Gift Bag or Envelope Punch Board
  • Punches (Stampin' Up's 1/4" Circle Punch, Corner Rounder, Blossom Builder Punch used here)
  • Glue Dots
  • Scoring tool
  • Multipurpose Liquid Glue
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (Basic Black Marker, Washi Tape, two small twigs (optional), Snowflake Die Cut and Thread (optional). Candy or Peppermint Patty)

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Cut a piece of heavy white cardstock to 2 1/8" x 11". Punch a divot 2 1/8" from each end on both sides using the Punch Board.

  2. Step 2

    Score the white cardstock at 5 1/8" and 5 7/8".

  3. Step 3

    Cut 2 pieces of black cardstock to 1/2" x 2 1/2" and round all 4 corners (pictured in step 6 below).

    Cut a piece of black cardstock 2" square. Make a divot in the centre of the top and round the two top corners using a corner rounder (save the scraps for the face).

  4. Step 4

    Glue the candy and the arms in place. Glue dots work best.

  5. Step 5

    Wrap some washi tape around the hat and glue it to the base of the snowman. Put some glue on the front of the hat bottom and fold up the snowman, sandwiching the bottom of the hat between the front and back of the snowman.

  6. Step 6

    Glue the scraps of black cardstock (left over from the hat) in place to make the face. Punch out some flowers for the hat and some circles for buttons. Use a black marker to make dots for button holes.

  7. Step 7

    Wrap some washi tape around the neck to look like a scarf.

  8. Step 8 (Optional)

    Make a tag to hang on the snowman's hand. Cut two and make a loop from thread or ribbon. Sandwich the loop between the two cut-outs.

  9. Step 9

    Complete the project.

What an adorable little snowman, and a fun tutorial! I love using the scraps for the eyes and mouth...they create so much expression.
These would be great for place cards, too. TFS

Oh, Jackie, this is ADORABLE! I love your snowman, and what a fabulous way to use everything...I smiled that you used the leftovers for the face! I'm of Scottish descent, so I was particularly impressed by that. And what a simple but really cute idea for a table favor! Love it, and thank you so much for sharing it and for doing the video!! Hugs!
