Summer Snowmen...


This week the Stampendous team has been playing with the Build a Snowman set. For today's project, I was up for the challenge to try to find a different way to use the set. After looking at it for a bit I found the makings of a bunny! 

To create the ears, I used inked and masked off the scarf tails from the snowman. 

The body came from the snowman body. I masked off the bottom snow section of the snowman so I could make it into grass later. 

The pom pom tail came from the pom pom of the snowman's hat.

The carrots are from the Create Winter set. The grass is from the Create Fall set.  



Supplies Used:
