Snowman Christmas Cards Tutorial

As I posted here, I make my holiday cards every year and they are all textile related.  This year, I deceided to use up some white buttons from the stash to make snowmen.
Here's the tutorial on how to make 4X6 cards

  1. To add some interest, I used to pieces of different colored paper.  Cut the inner card 5 1/2 x 8 inches,  and outer card 4 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches.
  2. Fold each in half and nestle together.
  3. Punch 2 holes on the fold line through both cards.
  4. Thread ribbon through holes, tie in bow and trim ends.
  5. To make snowmen, center three buttons on card using Welbond non-toxic superglue.
  6. Add a ribbon scarf using same glue. Mine were 2.5 inches then folded in half.
  7. Top hat was put together in two parts: 1/4 x 1 inch strip of paper with a 3/4 inch square on top.  Adhered with a regular glue stick!
  8. Face and "3 dots" were made with the tiniest dots of puffy paint. 
  9. Let dry for 4-6 hrs

Assembly line process works best!
This idea was adapted from Martha Stewart Living
