Well, it certainly is no secret that I LOVE Stampin' Up! punches. Which means that none of you will be surprised to find yet another punch project here. I made this little snowman candy cane with an idea I got from Ronda Wade, another Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I swapped out a couple punches, added a brad.... and here is what I came up with!

I made 50 of these so that I would have some to sell at my upcoming Handmade Holiday Shopping Extravaganza. She is just so adorable and the perfect little thing to give to the teller at the bank, the check out gal who has been working overtime ringing up all those holiday purchases, the receptionist at the dentist's office.... You could even add a little ribbon loop at the top and make it an ornament. How cool would it be to decorate an entire little tree with these cuties!

NEED the deets?? I used the Curly Label Punch for the base and punched it with Whisper White Cardstock. Then I punched half of the Curly Label Punch with Basic Black Cardstock and also punched a Word Window Punch with Basic Black Cardstock. I couldn't decide on the flower color, so I used both Garden Green (pictured) and Real Red Cardstock (on some not pictured here ;o) to make flowers that were punched with the Boho Blossoms Punch and then I added a little black brad to the center of the flowers on the hat. I also made a back for my candy cane bag decoration, but I did not add a flower or face to the back of it. I used the mini candy canes, and they were perfect!

These are darling Chris! Thanks for the great idea. I just bought a box of these little candy canes and will put these toppers on them. They will make the little gift more important.

What a cute idea!! I was wondering ... did you simply add your snowman topper to the existing candy cane wrapper or did you put the candy cane in a new bag? (It looks like the bag in the picture may be larger than the individually wrapped miniature candy canes I'm thinking of. Also, how did you attach the snowman?

Thanks for the inspiration!! I'm off to explore your blog. :)
