Snowman with Instructions

I've had so many inquiries as to what I used on the snowman, I thought I would

re-post him and list everything below.

Hat is the 1” Square Punch - round the top corners with the Corner Rounder. Brim is the Word Window Punch. Cherry Cobbler Waffle Ribbon for hat band and Boho Blossoms flower in Silver Glimmer paper for the snowflake. Tie a Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine bow.

Head is 1-3/4” Circle Punch in Cherry Cobbler. White 1-1/2” Circle from Circles #2 die-cut. Eyes are 1/4” Circle Punch, nose is a wedge from the Pennant die-cut, mouth is hand drawn.

Center Circle is 2-1/2” Circle of Old Olive. It can be from the punch or the Circles #2 die-cut. White is 2” Circle from Circles #2 die-cut. Emboss with Northern Flurry Die Cut. Buttons are the Circle Punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. Arms are from the Snowflake Punch.

Bottom Circle is Scallop Circle #2 die-cut in Cherry Cobbler. White is 3” Circle die-cut. Stamp set is Snow Much Fun.

He is assembled with Silver Mini Brads. When assembling him, place the bottom circle so the stamp design is straight in front of you. Place the middle circle with the arms upside down on top of the bottom circle. Make sure the buttons are straight in front of you. Center him within the white area of the bottom circle and add brad.

Unfold him; put the center piece (that is right side up now) straight in front of you. Place his head upside down on the center circle (upside down is not inside out!) so that his hat is facing down towards the bottom of the snowman. Center him within the white circle of the center piece and add brad.

Unfold him and he should be perfect! If he’s too floppy and keeps collapsing in on himself, smash the brads tighter.


This version is by Becky Roberts. The telescope snowman is not my original idea and was inspired by several stampers on Stampin’ Connections.

This is where I will be Saturday if you would like to come by and visit!
