The Paper Players Challenge #124 - Snow Much Fun!

This week's theme from Ann over at The Paper Players was so much fun, I just had to make:-

Here it is:-

Recently I have been making little treats with SU's long, skinny cellophane bags, & thought they would look kinda cute with snowmen on top.  Here is my little trio up close & personal:-

I used the smallest Holiday Ornament die to make the snowmen, trimming off the hanger section & the point at the bottom.  I used a bunch of punches to add their bits & pieces (see below) & trimmed some branches from a tree die-cut (courtesy of the lovely Bronwyn Eastley *waving madly to you Bron*) to make their arms.  The eyes are the smallest size pearls, coloured with a permanent marker.

Here is a list of their bits:-

Body: Small Ornament die
Arms: Twiggy Tree Die (not SU)
Red & Green Hat: 3/4" Circle punch
Red & Green Hat Band: Small Oval punch
Pompom: Itty Bitty Flower punch
Buttons: Owl Builder punch
Noses: Blossom Petals Builder punch
Snowballs: Owl Builder punch
Green Hat: 3/4" Circle punch
Scarf: Small Oval Punch
Scarf Fringe: Finishing Touches Edgelit die
Top Hat Crown: Hanger Section of largest Ornament die
Top Hat Band & Brim: Word Window punch
Heart: Owl Builder punch
Tags: 2.1/2" Circle punch

I forgot to take a picture, but the rear face of the tag has "to" & "from" stamped on it.  :)

I used colours to co-ordinate with the Smarties, set on a Bashful Blue background which has been sponged with white craft ink.  The snowmen are cut from White Shimmer cardstock & are sitting on a pile of Dazzling Diamonds.  :)
