Frosty "Top Note" Gift Bag
This idea was shared by my SAM – the original artist is Carol Payne (If anyone knows of her blog, let me know and I’ll add the link :-). Of course the snowman is made using the Top Note Sizzix die – I just cut the white and black ones in half and glued them to the bag (there’s actually a little gap between them that’s hidden with the hat trim). The hat trim measures 1″ x 4 1/4″ and has paper-piercing around the edges. The eyes are from the buttons die, and the flower and leaves from the Birds and Blooms dies. The nose and the leaves are run through the crimper and the smile are dots punched with the 1/4″ circle punch.
The Riding Hood Red Striped ribbon is attached with a black brad on the sides (the ribbon is folded under for a cleaner look). Isn’t he just the cutest thing? Oh, I found the bags at Target, 16 for $3 or so, and I trimmed them down to 5″ tall.
