Snowy Man

Hello!  It's a "Monday Morning Challenge" on Thursday with

This week a few of the Design Team were asked to craft holiday decor
and being that I love snowmen, I decided one a paper mache ornament!

You can try any size or shape of plain paper mache ornament for a Snowy Man such as this.

  For mine, I chose a 6" paper mache egg. First, I cut 10-12 1" wide strips
 (use a smaller width for smaller shapes) from a sheet of patterned paper;
trim strips down to fit from top to bottom of the ornament.

 Using Mod Podge and a sponge brush, apply a thin coat to a small section of the
 ornament and then press paper strips into place. Once all of the strips have been adhered,
apply a thin coat of Mod Podge over the entire piece. Once that has dried, cover with iridescent glitter.
Embellish with a paper cone hat, crochet heart cheeks and wooden eyes and nose.  

To create the cone hat, cut a piece of patterned paper to 5.25" X 11"; trim into a semi-circle
(as shown in photo) and then roll into shape.

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
