Quickie Little Gift Idea

This sweet snowman wrapper template was intended for a Hershey bar but I chose to use it for a box of matches. You can print off the template here:
First go to www.pccrafter.com on the home page at the top you will find the words "community"click on this then the page opens and on the left side there is a box & at the bottom click on "message board"when this opens scroll down to the 5th bold area where it says "support & learning forum" then the 2nd one down is "Instruction junction" click on thisnow look for "bamboo pin snowman" click on this & it takes you to the message where you will find the template.
I got this idea from a yahoo group I belong to. The hats in the original were knitted but I had lots of wool scraps to use up, so I made little tube hats tied with a wool scrap. The scarves are scraps cut with scalloped pinking shears. These will go in gift bags for my three snowbird friends, along with kitchen towels I have machine-embroidered saguaros on, crocheted dishcloths, and saguaro glass ornaments. I wanted them to take at least one thing snow-related to the sunbelt to think of me here in cold, cold Missouri this winter!!! These would make cute favors or small remembrance gifts (postman, favorite librarian, etc.) or fun little January "sit-arounds".

Hi Vera,
They are really adorable snowmen and could be made in almost any size. I love new ideas or even old ideas revisited. You are a very talented gal!!

To those friends heading to the land of the cacti... it was sweater/sweatshirt weather the whole time we were in Phoenix. Another good thought... you are retired and you don't have to drive to school in cold Missouri. Now... regarding cold Missouri... it's a warm and short winter compared to the middle of Wisconsin. I went to school there for 4 years and never bottoned a coat.

Hugs to you!
Joni

Super cute idea, Vera. Of course I'd prefer them wrapped around chocolate as in the original plan LOL!
