Craft Fair Lifesavers Snow People!



Oh my gosh these little snow people just make me giggle. Aren't they so stinkin' cute? I am going to be posting some Craft Fair Projects sporadically here and there in the next few months. I have a 2-day craft fair starting today and tomorrow so I've been extremely busy preparing projects. Wish me luck!


So let's take a closer look at my little snow people and then I'll tell you how I made them:



I always keep some of my retired products for instances such as these. All of the ribbon you see that I used on these projects is retired. The little hats are the small stretchy gloves you can purchase at most dollar stores or other department stores. I think I paid $2 for a bundle of 5 pairs of gloves. You then cut off the fingers and roll up the ends to create the hats. Some hats are shorter than others because of the length of each finger. So cute and easy!


So here are the steps to creating these. First up is a list of supplies I used:

  • Lifesaver rolls: I found mine through Walmart Online. They didn't have boxes of them at my local store. I think I purchased a box of 20. I have them all packed away for the craft fair.
  • Whisper White Cardstock
  • Cheap thin gloves
  • Googly Eyes
  • Black Permanent Marker
  • Tangerine Tango Cardstock
  • Tear & Tape
Steps:
  • Measure the length of the lifesavers and cut a piece of cardstock the width plus enough to cover the roll and overlap by 1/2". Add Tear & Tape at one end. Remove the backing from the tape and press in place overlapped over the other end.
  • Add Tear & Tape to the very top of one end around the cardstock. Remove the tape backing and place a hat over the Tear & Tape and press in place.
  • Add 2 googly eyes below the hat.
  • Hand-cut a nose into a long triangle using the Tangerine Tango Cardstock and glue in place below the eyes.
  • Use the black Permanent Marker to create a smiley mouth using dots.
  • Tie a ribbon around the lifesavers and tie into a double-knot!
