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.

Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
