Tealight Snowman Ornament Placecard for FCCB# 140
Karen Day, a fellow Close To My Heart consultant, posted tealight snowman ornaments on her blog last week and that's where I got the inspiration to make these adorable tealight snowman ornament placecardsfor my holiday table. (According to her blog post her inspiration came from Pinterest). I just thought that these snowman tealight ornaments were so cute and envisioned personalizing them and using them to assign seats at my holiday table and for my guests to keep. The theme for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Board #140 involves snow or snowflakes and this project qualifies. I used various 3/8' ribbons, 1/8' ribbons, an orange alcohol marker to color the flame tip for the snowman's nose, black CS, a black sharpie marker, a CTMH gold metallic marker, white uniball signo pen and glue dots to adhere the hat and ribbon hanger. The placecard ornaments sit on top of a cap from an old 35 mm film canister with some polyfil stuffing on top of them to look like snow. (I think that other bottle caps would work just as well). I used the hat from the Bonus 3 Home Decor & Vinyl overlay from the Ultimate Creative Sampler Cricut cartridge cut at 1.25" to cut out the hats.
Thank you, Karen Day, for inspiring me to create these cute little gifts!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
