I love to collect and play with paper, especially making 3D items. I also love to collect fabric! I think I have a problem!!!

And this little guy is the one I "shiver" for! hehe!!!
Isn't he adorable!  From the CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE KIT,
Mary designed this adorable snowman box!  His hat comes off
and you can place candy or a special gift inside!
The scarf and hat ribbon is burlap!  Isn't that burlap just wonderful!
I found this and a green one several years ago and bought 3 yards of each.
I have never used it till now, mainly because I never wanted to cut it!
I love burlap and just want to keep it and look at it!
Gosh, I'm such a hoarder!!!
The bow on the hat is made from the burlap string I unraveled from
the burlap to give the scarf it's stringy edges.  Then I added a gorgeous
Flair Button made by Tamara at http://paperplaystudio.bigcartel.com/ 
The rosette on the scarf I crocheted, also using burlap string.
A little craft wire twisted together for the arms and that's it!
Oh, I can't forget the beautiful paper I used from
Echo Park This & That Christmas Paper Pack #1 by Lori Whitlock--
a digital scrapbook paper download I bought from http://www.jessicasprague.com/
But beware!!!  Once you start, you just can't buy one!!!
Well, thanks for dropping by!  And food for thought, (lol)--
A chubby little snowman
had a carrot nose.
Along came a bunny,
and what do you suppose?

That hungry little bunny,
looking for some lunch,
Grabbed that snowman's nose,
Nibble, nibble, crunch!
