I decided to try out Eileen Hull's candy drawer on this project. I started by cutting out the candy drawer from mattboard and then cut out the drawer again with scrapbook paper. I inked and adhered the scrapbook paper to the drawer. I then assembled and adhered the drawer together and let dry. I used a combination of Zip Dry glue and Mod Podge and cloths pin to hold it together until it dried.
The snowman head I gessoed, painted with white acrylic paint and once dried I lightly drawed out the placing of its eyes, nose and mouth. The mouth I painted on with black acrylic paint and added pink for the cheeks. I shaped and then baked the "carrot nose" according to the direction on the Sculpey Clay packaging. Then I glued two Black Dew Drops and the carrot nose to create his face.
I applied Antique Mod Podge to all of the snowman's head…nose and eyes too…and then glittered him up. Also I painted two Snowflakes Chipboard Diecuts white and added glitter to them too.
I have drawn out my own pattern to created the hat for my snowman. I roll it up first to determine where I'm going to glue it and to make sure the size is right. Once I've got that right I glue together and then adhere the tinsel twine around the brim and then glue to the snowman's head.
I also cut out a medallion diecut, assemble and glue to the top of the candy drawer along with a snowflake diecut. Then I adhered the head on top of the snowflake. I also added a snowflake and button to the drawer to top it off. Now all I have to do is fill it up with goodies when Christmas rolls around and give it to that someone special. :-)
