Hi, happy Wednesday.  Our stamp club is having their Christmas party tonight at our LSS.  Always a good time.  We exchange a $ 10 stamp related gift, we each bring three Christmas gift tags and do an exchange, and of course, we EAT!  Tomorrow, I will show you the tags I made for the exchange.

I made this snowman hat.  I have seen it before, but unfortunately I didn't copy the directions, so I made up my own. 

Cut two 5 in circles from Black card stock.  One will be for the base or brim of the hat.  On the Other one, trace a three inch circle centered inside the 5 inch circle.  Cut at 1/2 inch intervals around the circle from the edge to the outside of the three inch circle.  Fold up the cut edge.  Using red line tape, run  completely around the cut edge, with the edge standing up.  Cut two pieces of black card stock 4 inches by 6 inches.  Overlap about 1/4 inch and attach the two pieces together.  On one long edge, score and fold inward 1/2 inch, so top edge of hat looks finished off.  Run red line tape down one of the short edges.  Now, adhere the long black piece with the turned over edge at the top,  to the glued, cut edges of the three inch circle, overlapping and gluing to the other end when you're completely around the circle.  Finish by adhering the bottom of the tube you created to the center of the other five inch circle.  Decorate as you please.

I filled a clear bag with holiday candy and tied with a red bow.  Makes a cute gift. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope your Wednesday is a good one.  Until later.........
