Melted Snowman Ornaments

I've seen these all over the crafting sites and my daughter asked when I would make them.
I had bought these very small glass ornaments from Michael's and was not sure what I was going to make with them.
Since I got a container of black seed beads, I used them as the "eyes" and "buttons". For the carrot, I took a toothpick and colored the ends with an orange sharpie, broke it off and added them to the ornament.

For the melted snow, I used Epsom Salts. Added a piece of plaid material as the scarf to the hanger portion on top. These are very small ornaments but such a cute idea.

Little snow babies ornaments

These are very small. To make them I used my big Sizzix die that has 4 different circles. To make mine, I used the 2 1/2" and 1 3/4" to cut the white felt. then sewn a gathering/running stitch along the outside and stuffed the little circles with fiber fill.
I hot glued the circle plumps together and tied on a piece of material for their scarf. Their eyes are little black seed beads. I think they are so cute and they are tiny! I got this idea from another crafter, if I find it, I'll post the original link.

Birthday Card - SU and music sheet

I love this stamp set I got from Stampin' Up!
I stamped it on a portion of the double tag die from Sizzix/SU.

I wanted a add the music sheet to represent the song one would traditionally sing on a birthday :)

Reindeer gift tags

Even though Christmas is over, I made these Friday morning just for something to do.
I used the Stampin' Up two tag Sizzix die, and the gorgeous reindeer stamp.  I inked the edges and added glitter glue.
Love these and will keep them for next year's gifts.
