I am currently doing a 12 days of Christmas project for my children's teachers at school. I send them each day with a not that says "On the XX day of Christmas, my student gave to me XXX." I have my girls each hand write the day and gift. I did not take a photo of today's project but it was a little box full of gift tags that the teachers can use for their own presents. Tomorrow the teachers will be getting these cute and easy snowman tealight projects!
I bought a pack of 24 flameless tea lights at Sam's Club and aside from the ones I am using for advent and our votive tree I had no idea what to do with the extras. I am so glad I came across this project. I adapted this from an idea I saw HERE.
I used the exclusive Close To My Heart Cricut cartridge Art Philosophy (Z1686). I cut out the red and green ovals using the <Oval2> keys at 1 3/4' each. I then punched out the top red circle using a 3/4" circle punch. For the scallop underneath I cut out a <Scallop> at 1 3/4" as well. I used my Sizzix texture botique machine and a holly embossing folder to run the pieces through. I then started assembling.
To create the red brim I used a 1" circle punch and made two random punches. I then cut the green oval in half. I glued the green oval on top of the red oval. I then attached the red circle to the top. I cut the fringe as an after thought but make sure to cut it before attaching so the adhesive holds well. Before attaching the bottom green scallop I used the 3/4" punch to make a circle in the bottom for the on/off switch.
After attaching all the pieces I placed two dots of red glitz glitter gel (Z1484) on the cheeks. I then drew on the eyes and a smile with a black sharpie. Lastly, I tied a piece of baker's twine (Z1751)for a little scarf.
Thanks for viewing my little project and stop back for more of the 12 days of teacher gifts!
