Building a snowman is a treasured Christmas tradition. It’s no wonder. Who can resist the cuteness factor? Today I’m sharing a little treat box with a snowman face that’s super fun to make and can be used on a variety of holiday projects.
I created a snowman face SVG for this little project. He’s wearing the classic black shabby hat and a little striped scarf. Add the little carrot nose and you have a cute little embellishment for a tag or another project. I cut the first snowmen with the Cricut Maker at a larger size and I will probably use them for another project.
Tim Holtz distress ink in Victorian Velvet was used to give the snowmen a little blush on the cheeks. I simply brushed it on with a cotton swab. Other distress inks could be used around the edges for a little depth and dimension. I think they would look great with this plaid too. What do you think?
This is what the uploaded file looks like in Cricut Design Space. You don’t necessarily need the circle layer. It’s there if you want an extra layer for some dimension.
The Box Tutorial
The box tutorial came from a video I found when I was searching for envelope punch board projects. If you don’t have an envelope punch board, they are a neat tool for making different size envelopes, small boxes, and other crafts. I’ve had one for a couple of years and I’m always on the lookout for new ways to use it.
The YouTube video I watched was by Pootles Paper Craft. She did a great job of teaching this, so I won’t get into any more of a tutorial.
This was for a candy cane box but could be used for other treats as well. It’s a great way to use 6″x6″ paper packs. The paper pack I used was one that I got free with an order from Scrapbook.com.
I created a little belly band with one of the papers from the pack and then cut one of the little snowmen at 1.25 inches wide in Cricut Design Space. The eyes were pretty tiny and I’m in need of a new fine point blade, but I think it still turned out pretty darn adorable.
