DO YOU WANT TO BUILD A SNOWMAN? with TOMBOW

 

Winter
is my favorite time of the year, so I created this bright and happy Snowman to
decorate my mantel all winter long!  I
used ALL of my favorite Tombow USA products to accommodate the different surfaces and
textures to make my Snowman really come to life!  My Snowman was quick and easy to make, so I
hope that you will make one, or maybe two – one to keep and one to give away!

 

 

Here’s What You Will Need:

 

 

Tombow sent me these products to complete my project for the Round 2 of the 2016 Design Team – hope you like it!

 

Here’s How to Make It:

 

  1. Apply lace to
    four sheets of mat board using Tombow
    MONO Multi Liquid Glue
    , let dry.
  2. Mold white air
    dry clay into a ¾” carrot shape, let dry at least 24 hours.
  3. Die
    cut two sets of smallest size block from black mat board with die cutting
    machine.  Pre-fold all scores.  Color edges and folds with Tombow Dual Brush Pen Black N15.  Attach block pieces (according to package
    directions) with Tombow Xtreme Permanent
    Adhesive
    .
  4. Die cut two sets
    of the medium, large and extra large size blocks from the lace covered mat
    board with die cutting machine.  TIP:
    Make sure to place the lace side face down on the die, so the shapes are cut
    properly.  Pre-fold
    all scores.  Gently remove the first layer of the mat board and lace from
    all six tabs, so the blocks will assemble easily.
  5. Attach
    medium, large and extra large block pieces (according to package directions)
    with Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive.  TIP:
    Spot glue any loose edges of lace with Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue.
  6. Remove the Heart
    and Flower die shapes from Scoreboards XL Blocks/Cubes 3D Die.  Color front and sides of Heart with Tombow Dual Brush Pen Rubine Red 755,
    cover with Tombow
    MONO Multi Liquid Glue
    , then sprinkle
    on garnet glitter.  Color front
    and sides of Flower with Tombow Dual
    Brush Pen Reflex Blue 493
    , cover with Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue, then sprinkle on lapis glitter.
  7. Once carrot nose
    is dry, color with Tombow Dual Brush Pen
    Orange 933
    .  Apply “rosy cheeks” with
    cotton swab and pink chalk.   Attach
    carrot nose, button eyes, button mouth and buttons to front of Snowman with Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue.
  8. Measure and cut
    checkered ribbon to fit around smallest block.
    Attach with Tombow MONO Permanent
    Adhesive Runner
    .  Attach 2” by 2”
    craft foam to base of smallest block with Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue to create the
    Snowman’s top hat.  Apply snowflake rhinestone
    to glittered flower, then attach to band of top hat with Tombow Xtreme Tabs.  Apply
    glittered heart to left chest of Snowman with Tombow Xtreme Tabs.
  1. Gather six
    different ribbons, knot in center and attach knot to back of Snowman’s head
    with Tombow Xtreme Tabs.  Tie ribbons in a loose knot at the front
    right of the Snowman’s head, securing with Tombow
    Xtreme Tabs
    , then let the ribbons cascade.
    Trim any long ends of ribbons.
    I
    love the texture that the lace gives to the Snowman, it’s so unique!  I enjoy pushing the envelope to test the
    limits of what the Tombow USA products can do, and I am always pleasantly surprised
    that they perform so well!  It is because
    all of the Tombow USA products are such high quality and so versatile, and I
    can no longer create without them!
    Thank
    you for stopping by!  -Beth
