Picka A Petal Snowman Gift Sack

A simple white lunch bag becomes a darling snowman gift sack by adding card stock and rubber stamp images.

All supplies from Stampin' Up!, unless otherwise noted

Pick A Petal stamp set

Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Glorious Green and Going Gray card stocks

Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie classic inks

Basic Black marker

Versamark ink

Clear and white embossing powder (optional)

Stampin' Pastels

gold glitter

5 petal flower punch


white acrylic craft paint

Fold the top of the bag over; this is what you glue the head onto.

Determine the size of circle for the snowman's head by the size of bag you are using. Same for the rectangles you will cut out for the hat.

Stamp the snow mans eyes, blush his cheeks with Stampin' Pastels, draw on a mouth.

Stamp the nose on a scrap piece of card stock. I embossed the nose too then cut it out and glued it to his face. You can simply stamp the nose directly to the head. This project was an experiment, wasn't sure if I wanted to do the nose separately and embossed or not.

Punch two flowers out of red, one out of green. Curl the petals. Glue together, layering slightly off center so you can see all the petals. Add glitter, beads, brads, etc to the center.

Dab white acrylic craft paint onto the hat top and brim to simulate snow. Once dry, glue the pieces together then on to the head on top of the sack.

Thanks for looking =)
