Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

UPDATE - You can now purchase this little snowman as a kit at SVG Attic.  SDS Frosting the Snowman.

Welcome to the SVG Attic-SnapDragon Snippets Winter Wonderland blog hop!  We are so excited to have you join us today!

At each stop of the hop we hope you will be inspired by the creativity of the design teams of SVG Attic and Snapdragon Snippets. You are sure to find many wonderful projects that will be at the top of your crafting lists! If you happened across this post out of order, please head to the SVG Attic blog to start at the beginning of the hop.

Here is the project I created for this hop:

Christmas is my favorite time of year.  I love all the decorations!  I especially like snowmen.  So I created one for you today.

3d paper snowman with top hat

I made him using the SDS 3D Cake Box Kit as my snowman.  It worked perfectly!  I used my snowflake embossing folder on the cake panels and chalked them with blue to help it pop.

I used the Leprechaun Hat from the SDS Charmingly Green Kit for the hat.

And the SDS Ice Princess Party Pack for the snowman's face, arms and buttons.  I love the detail in the cute little carrot nose and that the eyes and buttons are not perfectly round to give them the look of coal.  Finally, I added a little piece of holly from the Winter Fun Photo Props and some cute snowman ribbon I found on clearance last year.  

Here is a list of the kits I used:

I hope you have enjoyed my project.  Angeline is up next.
