Tutorial - Snowman Poop mini card

Hi there!

I have  a tutorial up on the ScrapMuch? blog today and wanted to share it here, too.

Do You recall last week I shared this sweet little Snowman Poop  project? 
Well today, I thought I would share the basic 'how to' to create the Tic Tac box cover.

I started out with a piece of double sided heavy weight patterned paper, ( this one is by MME) measuring 4.25 x 2.75 inches.
 Then I scored it at 1.75 and 2.5" (or 1.75 from each end it that is easier for you).
 Next I adhered the little pack of Tic Tacs using a liquid glue, and added the sentiment to the front of the TicTacs with regular adhesive.
 Working on the outside again, I adhered the twine to the back using washi tape, it is easy to work with, decorative and really effective for this application.
 Now back to the front, after colouring and cutting my images, I matted it onto a coordinating cardstock, then added it to the front of the project using pop dots.
The last step is to add a jingle bell before tying it all up.
This image and sentiment came from the Whimsie Doodles digi shop, they print out in sheets of 20.  For only $1.00 you get both the images and the sentiments!  If you need more than that, just colour the sheet once and photo copy it!  Don't forget you can refer to this tutorial for help with using digis, and you can colour them using the paint program on your computer if you do not like to colour.  Or better yet, get the kids to help colour!  We are sending these to school with my youngest on the last day before the holidays.

Thanks for visiting!
