MCT 12 Days of Christmas Day 5!


HUGE GIVEAWAY ALERT!
Okay, since it's Christmas, Emma decided to give away TWELVE of her FAVORITE things to ONE LUCKY person! She will announce one of the prizes for each day in her video! So by the 12th day, you will see ALL 12 items that ONE lucky person will be receiving! All you have to do is leave your comments each day! It's that simple! ALSO, **VERY IMPORTANT** Please leave your contact information so we can contact you "IF" YOU are the lucky winner! 



Good morning and welcome to another day of My Creative Time's, 12 Days of Christmas!  We are on day 5 and I'm having a blast seeing all the great projects my teammates have been making and of course all the awesome projects Emma's made too!! It happens every year, I see so many neat things I want to make and I totally just run out of time! I wonder can we just keep making Christmas projects on into next year?! I would at least hopefully be on top of things when Christmas rolls around in 2013!

Today, I'm excited to share my little (what I'm calling) Rolo Snowman! Yup, you heard it right, this is a pack of rolo's that I've altered into a snowman! Again, I wished I could take credit for the idea but it's another one of those Pinterest finds that I had to try! I have changed mine up from the one I seen so I do feel some better! To make these, I unwrapped just the outer package (not the gold that holds them all together) and got the measurements to cut my white card stock. Before I wrapped it around, I stamped a face using PK-460 Happy Lashes. I then wrapped the card stock around and glued. I used some twine that my bestie had sent me for his scarf and a small button from my stash. I used the cartridge Snow Friends for his branches and I have him holding the little banner from the Vintage Stitched Label dies. The sentiment is from It's A Magical Season. I used my Zig black writer pen and drew some little buttons. For his little toboggan, I took a pair of cheap gloves and cut one of the fingers off and then rolled it up. I then glued a little white pom pom to the top!


Here is a picture from the side! I think I shall name him Roland what do you guys think?!! I know one thing for sure Roland might should be a little scared Rolo's are sounding pretty good about now bahahahaha!
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day! Hugs, Leanne

Your Rolo Snowman is the cutest, Leanne! I was wondering what you used for his hat. Now I wish I wouldn't have gotten rid of my children's too small gloves. I could have used those!
