Snowman Wrapped Chocolate Bars
To begin these are the materials you will need.
cotton holiday fabric (or plain color is fine)
Sewing machine (optional) you can always hand stitch or hot glue if you want
The candy bar wrapper printable was originally found on Laurie Furnell's blog but she no longer has it listed. She has several others on her blog though.
For the snowman, you need to go to the following link and print out your snowman on regular paper. Make sure it is landscape, and take off the internet header too!
Snowman Printable (however this one was originally designed as a popcorn wrapper which is why we had to adjust the measurements)
First, Cut off 1.25 inches from the right side and 2.75 inches from the left side of the snowman. Then use your ruler to mark off the following measurements: 1 inch from bottom, 1.5 inches from top, 2.25 inches from each side, left and right. Then fold on each of those lines like this.
Ta-Da! He's naked...gotta clothe this guy before he catches a cold!
Cut a piece of the felt (4x5) inches - make sure it stretches in the 5 direction
fold 4 inch sides together and sew that edge so you have a tube
slip on hat, tie with a scrap (make sure it stretches), and pull it taught to make the ends curl up.
