Snowman Mania

I do not know why, when the sun is shining that I seem to be obsessed with snowmen.  I love the simplicity of them, their nice clean lines.

The following tags were made from old business cards, with blue paper glued to the front, and the edges dusted with sparkly snow flurries.  Three white buttons form the snowman, a little scrap of black felt for his hat, and bakers twine for his scarf. 

Now I need your help before I make more, do you like the tag with twigs arms drawn or not?

Next I used some paper tags with aluminium rims to paint some snowman faces.  I really liked how these ones turned out

Last, but not least, I have been using snowman buttons on jumbo paperclips for bookmarks.  Really sweet!

Do you ever get a craze on one thing, and it takes over your creativity for awhile?



  1. I like the arms drawn in. If you have a lot of buttons I would choose the two hole buttons for the head. This makes them look more like eyes.
    Cute idea's today.

  2. I like the arms! I also think that 2 hole buttons are better for the head, and the lower body button needs to be bigger - but I like round fat snowmen!

  3. I love these snowmen! Great craft ideas for mommy and kids!

  4. Oh my goodness, these are cute! I love snowmen!

    I like with AND without arms. Why not do some of both for a little variety?

  5. I think they are both cute and I hadn't noticed the holes in the buttons until someone brought them up.

    My favorite are the tags. They are adorable.

  6. OMG!! i love these!! they are so sweet. i prefer the one with the arms, and i love the paper clip too!!

    I'd love it if you could share this post on my new link party, serenity saturday over at

    Well hello CCC all the way over there in downunder. Love your snowmen; especially the little tags. Hope they are keeping you happy and smiling like they are me. Simplicity is inspiration from buttons to beads we make them grow. Blessings Terri
