It's a Bit Frosty Around Here...

With today's beautiful projects!!

Glue Girls Danielle Flanders and Leslie Ashe interpreted this week's challenge with absolutely adorable and beautiful projects!

 Leslie is after all our hearts with her sweet Snowman garland! This is a great project for kids too!

And consider making a single snowman or two for matching ornaments for your tree!

Danielle has made the softest tree that can be hung or sit on the box for a special piece for your home!

Snowman Garland
Designer: Leslie Ashe

Glue Arts supplies: Glue Glider Pro with High Tac cartridge, Spooled Ribbon Adhesive, 3D Combo pack
Making Memories Noel paper line & embellishments
May Arts ribbons

Other supplies:
Shimmerz Spritz
Queen & Co pearls
Bazzill cardstock
Zig silver pen
Bic Mark It pen

I started by using my Slice & the 'fa la la' card to make several 4" snowmen out of the beautiful MM paper:

-I adhered them together using my Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro with High Tac.
-I added eyes, a nose & mouth.
-next I used Shimmerz to give the snowmen a "snowy" shiny effect.

-some of the snowmen I added something to their bellies, some I just left blank.

-next I turned them over & using Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive, adhered the ribbon to the backs of the snowmen, in 2 layers so the ribbon wouldn't buckle the snowman.
now all they need is to be hung on my mantle!

Snowflake Tree
Designer: Danielle Flanders

Designer Tips:  This is a styrofoam tree that I decorated on top of a little gift box. You can hang it on your tree without the box underneath as an ornament... or turn it into a gift box by adding the little box with hot glue onto the bottom of the tree and put a small gift or note inside the box for the recipient.

Step 1: Gather a styrofoam tree, Making Memories papers and die cut, paper snowflakes (I found these at Target in the holiday section), scallop punch by Martha Stewart, tinsel, pearl pins, a small round box from craft store, glitter/snow from craft store and Glue Arts' Hot Glue Gun/glue sticks.

Step 2: Cut the embossed snowflake paper by Making Memories in wide strips and punch the bottom edges with a scallop punch. Wrap a strip around the tree starting at the bottom. Adhere in back of tree with stick pins that have a pearl on the end for a decorative look. (Trim off excess if the strip is too long.) Continue adding each row of paper until you get to the top of the tree.

Step 3: Wrap a small piece of tinsel around the top to cover the hole on top where the paper didn't cover. Glue tinsel on with hot glue gun. Poke 2 large pins in top of tree.

Step 4: Using small stick pins, adhere paper snowflakes randomly around tree.

Step 5: Use the hot glue gun to add "snow" to the center of the snowflakes.

Step 6: Cover box with Making Memories paper using the hot glue gun. Wrap edge of box with brown die cut edge paper. Stamp a holiday saying onto die cut inside and tuck inside box with fake snow (and a gift for the recipient).'s post has us wishing for a soft, snowy day.....okay okay...just a little snow!!!
