The Snowmen Have Been Framed!

I have a set of wonky, but cute "FRAMED SNOWMEN" tags up on the
SIMPLE STORIES BLOG
...and hey, they can also double as ornaments after the gift-giving is done!

To start, I grabbed a few of the "Claus & Co." Chipboard Frames
 For each snowman, you'll need a large and small square, as well as a round chipboard
 shape for the head.

 Next, I backed each of the frames with a matching-sized square of patterned paper
 from the 6X6 Paper Pad

The heads were covered in an off-white pattern from a section of the "Ho Ho Ho" paper
For the noses I used smaller sized hearts from the "Wood Veneer" pack and inked them
 with a burnt orange chalk ink.


 The cheeks were given some blush with pink chalk and black enamel dots 
were used for the eyes. 
To adhere the small and large frame together, simply use a scrap piece of 
heavyweight cardstock or chipboard piece.  Make a bridge at the back with the
 material by gluing one end to the large frame and the other half to the smaller frame.



Now for the fun part...embellishing!  I added different Wood Veneer pieces 
(that I inked with various chalk inks) and then accented the centers with Bradz.  
The smaller alphabet stickers from the "Expressions Cardstock Stickers" 
were used to personalize with the snowmen.

To give a nice, finished look (as well as make into a gift tag), I traced the entire 
snowman onto a piece of cardstock and then trimmed out and glued to the back. 
 Use stickers or fancy hand-writing to add your To and From :)

With a small hole punched at the top, tie some string or twine through and your 
tag-ornament is framed and ready to go!

I hope that you enjoyed this fun Christmas craft and will give it a try!

A Festive Unity

Greetings! I'm pleased and excited to be sharing in this fabulous AUTHENTIQUE PAPER & UNITY STAMP COMPANY  BLOG HOP
Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
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…
