some assembly required...

Wow- a whole week has gone by since my last post!! All I can say is that there is a LOT going on right now and so my posting may be a little sporadic for the next little bit... Not that I don't have TONS to show you- I'm still creating- things are just running a little different around here right now!

This project I'm showing you today is actually something from my Open House for an upcoming class that I've been meaning to show you for a while!! I just took the photos yesterday finally!
The first photo shows the assembled KIT. I used a cute silver tin from . The "Build a Snowman" wording on the label was printed onto white cardstock. The red label is from the October Stamp of the Month "Annotations"
The pieces you see inside the tin are from the November Stamp of the Month "All Decked Out".
Although the face and buttons of the snowman are seperate stamps- I chose to add them to the appropriate pieces without needing to make them seperate magnets.
I made sure that I had one scarf that would got with each hat- color wise.
Colors: Holiday Red, clover meadow green, Crystal Blue
The magnets can be found at both Hobby Lobby (1-5x7 sheet for $1.99) or Michaels ( large roll- forget the size but it's a LOT for $9.99) With a 40% off coupon at either location it's pretty affordable but if you plan to make a bunch- the roll of magnets at Michaels is probobly a better deal.
Here's an assembled snowman on the side of my fridge- isn't it cute!!
I showed these to a co-worker who liked them so much she ordered 3 sets!!

It is so how many "outfits" do you get w/ each snowman? And, how much are you selling the kits for? Just curious? I love the idea though!
