Meet The Snow Family – Papa Snow

This card is part of the Karen Burniston Design Team snowmen challenge for November.

Today, I’m show you how to make Papa Snow.

Papa Snow is comprised of all three balls – the Mini Ball Pop-Up, the Bitty Ball Pop-Up and the Surprise Ball Pop-Up with all his facial features, hat and stick arms from the Snowman Add-Ons.

I find watching the assembly videos for the balls very useful. (Bitty Balls, Mini-Balls and Surprise Balls) Numbering the order of gluing the tabs is useful for the assemble of the balls. I cut all the trapezoid panels from white gold shimmer cardstock. And the ball halves are cut from a 100 lb. smooth white cardstock.  Assemble the base Surprise Ball with a brad threaded through the bottom hole.

(I used the rubber bands recommended by Karen Burniston and had noted the number of knots for each size ball I used in the photo.)

Because the different size balls don’t cover the “shoulders” or top of neck of the snowman, I like to cut a full-size hexagon to cover this area by tracing the die and then cutting with scissors.

Once all the balls are assembled and decorated, glue the balls together. Next, you’ll attach the snowman to the card base with the brad.
