Deck the Halls with Frosty and PPPR...

Welcome to this month's Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon Blog Hop! If you've come from Kathy's Blog, you're on the right track! If you are starting here, you might want to go back to the PPPR Blog to start from the beginning...there will also be a link at the end of this post to the PPPR Blog so you'll be able to go back through if you'd like.

This month's theme is Deck the Halls and we will be showcasing a bunch of Christmas-themed files from Lisa's Shop.

From the moment I saw Lisa's 3D Pumpkin Gift Boxes, I knew I'd be stacking them to make a snowman (that's what I do with my REAL pumpkins after Thanksgiving...paint them white, stack them and add mittens, beanie, buttons, etc.).

Can I introduce you to....FROSTY!!! He even has a little friend perched on his tree branch arm!

------------------------------------------------
I made the smallest pumpkin's lid black instead of white so it would resemble his top hat...he stands about 18" tall

------------------------------------------------
I glued each lid to the bottom of the smaller pumpkin for a little bit of stability...his eyes are buttons covered with chunky MS glitter from a few years ago. The scarf is from Let It Snow Cutting Files.

------------------------------------------------
His carrot nose is from Lisa's Seed Packet Cutting File and I just cut several of the same carrot and glued them together...I've included instructions on how to attach below.
------------------------------------------------
The arms and the Cardinal are from Lisa's Winter Cardinal Cutting Files...instructions for attaching the arms are written on the photo below...
