Gift Box Punch Board Snowman Tutorial

I made this snowman as a sample for a workshop I had in November. It was inspired by a snowman that my downline Valli's daughter made. You can see a photo of her snowman HERE! I took her idea and added a few of my own twists including a box hat and a chevron scarf. Find out how to make this snowman with my video tutorial or look at my quick reference guide below. All the supplies to make this snowman are available for purchase HERE!

Make the following boxes with the Gift Box Punch Board:
  • 2.5" x 2.5" x 1.75" Basic Black Box for the hat
  • 2.5" x 2.5" x 2.5" Whisper White Box for the head
  • 3.25" x 3.25" x 3.25" Whisper White Box for the middle
  • 4" x 4" x 4" Whisper White Box for the bottom

If you need help making the boxes, please see my tutorial on how to use the Gift Box Punch Board here:
