Melting paper snowman

Hello folks! I made this paper snowman last year and thought it would be funny to make a melting version (inspired by these biscuits!).

It’s been 3 or 4 years since we have had a good covering of snow in the South West of England so I have my fingers crossed for some this year!

I hope all your Christmas preps are going well.

1. Print out the snowman pdf. Make sure you set your printing preferences to ‘photo’ and ‘best photo’. Cut around the outside of the body, head and nose.

2. Take the head and score along the light grey lines using a ruler and pointy object (such as compass or needle). Fold along each of these lines. Glue together

3. Cut and fold the nose.

4. Glue the nose onto the head and the head onto the body.

Cheerio for now

Confetti wrap // Christmas edition

Here is a Christmassy version of my confetti wrap. I love it because there are no bows to get squashed. The best bit is that the confetti moves around when you shake it.

I hope all your festive preparations are going well. My children finish school for two weeks today – Yay!

YOU WILL NEED:

+ Plain wrapping paper
+ Clear cellophane
+ Sticky tape
+ Confetti
+ Scissors

HOW TO
– – – – – – – – – –

1. Wrap your gift in some plain paper. Neutral colours work well (you could even use brown craft paper).

2. Gather your confetti – if you don’t have any to hand you can make some with a holepunch or you can give some tinsel a haircut!

3. Wrap your gift in cellophane – remember to leave one end open. Pour your confetti mix into the open end of your cellophane wrapped gift. You may need to give it a bit of a nudge to get it to go down the gaps.

If you are struggling to buy clear cellophane then try your local florist (that’s where I got mine from – and it was really inexpensive).
