The letter S with My Cricut Craft Room

Hi Crafters! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I spent time with my mom for her birthday and we made these cute little snowmen. It just happened that today was the Letter S on My Cricut Craftroom. 

Here is my project and then I will tell you what we did.
For this project I used the Wrap it up Cricut cartridge to cut the boxes. They are found on pg 43 of the handbook. I used the box function key. 
I cut the boxes at 7", 8 1/4" and 9"

I then ran the cuts through the cuttlebug with the snowflake folder. I had to fold the paper and run them through several times to get most of the box shapes embossed.  

I then assembled the boxes and then stacked them together using hot glue(it seemed to work best).

I added buttons for his jacket and his cheeks. 

I wanted him to have on ear muffs instead of a top hat so I used pipe cleaners and made to "muff"part by rolling the pipe cleaner around itself.( I would have used pom poms but I didn't have them)  and the  just a piece of pipe cleaner for the band of the ear muffs. 

For his arms I just made a circle at the in of the pipe cleaner and then put a slit in the side of the middle box to attach the arms. 

I drew on his mouth and added some google eyes. 

I then used Aleen's glitter snow to give him a little something extra. 

I love the way he turned out. He makes me smile when I see him. I am going to make different ones to represent the people in my family. 

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. To see more projects with the letter S head over to My Cricut Craft Room to see what my Design Team sisters have made.
