Hi everyone Jo here. December is here and the Christmas countdown is on. This project is for Artfull Crafts table settings week. I have always thought that snow at Christmas time would be wonderful, well, for a few hours anyway. Making a snowman looks so much fun, but as that isn't going to happen this year in New Zealand, I decided a snowman's hat would be the next best thing for my Christmas table (actually for another friend of mine's table).
started with a coffee tin, (no I don't drink that much coffee, I got it
from a large business in town). I covered the tin with BoBunny paper, I
liked the black and white look. I also covered the top of the tin. I
cut this window from a Cottage Cutz die that I have had for a while,
however there are lots of neat window dies on the market now, including
two new releases from Spellbinders. I adhered the cut-out window on to thick acetate, I then scored and creased the window panes, so that the window had dimension. I decorated with Peelcraft stickers.
I used Graphic 45 paper
behind the window to show a scene through the window. I then cut a
large circle from black card and adhered to the bottom of the tin, to
make the brim of the hat. I then added baubles, pinecones, tulle,
graphic 45 tags, poinsetta flowers, berries, leaves, ribbon, and a few
I used the window and peelcraft on a card as well. So these windows have lots of uses.
hope you enjoyed the project.
