I saw a snowman jar filled with peppermints somewhere – either Facebook or Pinterest. It was simple with a black hat and scarf on a jar. I decided I wanted to create one and fill it with tags. So now what to do for the tags – I had a stack of 1″ Whisper White strips of card stock on my craft table left from another project – well my stamp a stack class so I had a bunch. I decided to use those and make some abstract snowman tags.
Everyone in my Wrapping up the Holidays class got to make one of these jars and a dozen of the tags.
The hat on the jar is made with the Circle Framelits – a brim and a top and then a strip to wrap around for the side of the hat. I decided to put a hinge on the top of my hat so that you could just lift it up and pull out the tags without unscrewing the lid.
The tags are my favorite part and so simple. I stamped the three dots from the Snow Place stamp set. I guess they are 3 little lumps of coal. I cut the hats from the framelits and just punched a little hole in the top. I strung the hat on the baker’s twine and then through the tag. The hat swings. To finish tie a piece of ribbon around the tag and stamp the back with to/from.
Cute and quick and simple.
Thanks for stopping by today. I still need to wrap presents for Christmas and I have yet to mail out any Christmas cards – yikes! Maybe Christmas Eve will be the day they go out. That is pretty much the norm for me though.
