Designer’s tip: Because there are so many components in this die set, I found it helpful to separate all the dies into “Snowman,” “Santa,” and “Elf” sets, placing them in separate envelopes. This made it easier to die cut the pieces in the different colored cardstocks as I needed them. And although the box needs to be traced and cut out, I find cutting to be therapeutic, so that wasn’t an issue—plus, the lines are pretty easy to cut and score!
1. For the box: Use the plastic stencil to trace the box onto Snowflakes & Snowfolk aqua snowflakes cardstock, then cut it out. Score on the folding lines, then crease all the scores in mountain folds. Place sticky tape on the outside surfaces of the four tabs. Bring one side up, then bring the circular front and back panels up and attach the tabs to the inside surfaces of them. Repeat with the other side panel.
2. For the front: Die cut the snowman head from white cardstock and the hat top, hat brim, eyes, mouth, and eyebrows from black cardstock. Die cut two holly leaves from green cardstock, a carrot from gold cardstock, cheeks from pink cardstock, and the scarf, hat band, and holly berries from red cardstock.
3. Use the photo as a guide to glue all the pieces together, creating the snowman’s head. Use the white pen to draw small ovals in the eyes as shown. Place sticky tape on one circular section of the box, then attach the snowman to it.
4. For the back: Cut out the Snowflakes & Snowfolk “have a jolly holiday” label and glue it across the box back.
