A friend and I try to help in our kids’ classroom by seasonally decorating. We decided it was time to do a winter bulletin board. The kids have a reading spot which was formerly a tent. We are in the process of building an igloo out of empty gallon jugs. Stay tuned for how that goes! It’s going well, but we need more gallon jugs!
This week we went in and built what we could of the igloo and then turned our focus to the bulletin board. I cut these snowmen for the boards. This first guy is from Gypsy Wanderings. I used the Gypsy to hide the details on his body. I made him as large as possible, cutting the shadow, body, and then the hat/scarf.
I ran the hat and scarf through the Cuttlebug to give it some texture. Then I added Glossy Accents to his eyes and some glitter glue to his nose. Perfecto! I had picked up a “sparkle” paper pack at Joann’s on clearance and thought the silvery sparkle paper was perfect for this happy snowman!
Next I cut some of my favorite Imagine guy…from Enjoy The Seasons. I really love this snowman! I cut 2 of them using “Fit To Page” to get the biggest image I could. Then I had some left over from a project in December, so I took those in too.
I need to go in and take a photo of the bulletin board and add that to this post. It turned out really cute. Who doesn’t love an adorable snowman, right?
