Coaster Fun! Frosty

OMG! I seen these on SCS and just had to try him. I think he turned out rather well. I am proud of this little guy. So as promised here he is a day late but he needed to dry good for my glue to stick.



You will need 5 square coasters



White 1/4 inch or so ribbon



White, Black and Orange CS



Large Oval Punch



1/2 circle punch



1/4 inch punch or your crop a dile for the mouth pieces



Corner Rounder



gray chalk for eyes



rust chalk for nose



Snowflake Brad



Red Ribbon for hat



White Acrylic Paint and foam brush







Ok to get started paint your square coasters with white acrylic paint and let dry really well. You want to be able to stick the eyes, nose, mouth and hat to this. Punch your holes along the side evenly. I used the crop a dile for this.



Next punch out with your large oval punch 2 white eyes. Chalk around them as shown in picture. With a small piece of Orange cut an angle for his carrot nose and round the end so it looks more like a carrot. I just winged this have no pattern for his nose.



With the crop a dile punch out 9 circles with the largest punch for his mouth or you can use a 1/4 punch. Crop a dile works great for this part and goes quickly. Next with your 1/2 circle punch punch out his eyes and high light with a white gel pen or marker. Put his eyes on the white oval pieces. Next put all your pieces on one of the coasters that you painted for his face.



Next you will thread your ribbon on the sides of the coasters to put the box together. With some crystal effects glue the bottom on your snowman box.



Next cut out your hat with black card stock. I did the brim about 1 1/4 wide and just a touch over the edges of the front of the coaster piece. Top part of his had is 4" x 2 1/2" high. Piece these together and add your ribbon around the upper part of the brim of his hat. With the crop a dile or a small punch, punch a hole for your snowflake brad. Attach hat to your snowman coaster. And your have created a Frosty Coaster box, now wasn't that just so simple?



I hope you all like him as much as I do. The original one to make his is on SCS here is her snowman. So my thanks for thinking of him goes to dfaust on SCS. I love him and will be trying more of your coaster creations.



My youngest son Travis now wants me to make one for his teacher at school for Christmas. So I guess I will be making more of him and maybe add a hot choc. package and some small marshmallows in a baggy. Then a candy cane to stir it. And stuff inside of Frosty.
