How cute are these!!! I participated in a local craft bazaar this past weekend and this is one of the items I sold! I had a big bag of battery operated tealights in my stash and when I saw the little gems on Becky Roberts blog, I knew I had to make some.
*Small circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (put punch as far as it will go into a piece of Whisper White).
*1 3/8 Circle Punch (center over the small cirlce and punch to create a donut)
*Extra Large Oval Punch (cut in half for hat).
*Large Oval Punch (insert about half way and punch, insert over the same spot and move it up about 1/4" for the hat brim).
*1 3/4 Scallop Circle Punch (use the small circle punch again and punch a hold in this piece for the on/off switch on the back).
*Keep the small circle you punched from the Scallop for the ball on the hat.
*Glue hat pieces together and run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice TIEF.
*Color Basic Pearls with a Black Sharpie and carefully place on the white donut to create the eyes and mouth.
*Add adhesvie to the back of the donut piece and gently wiggle it over the "nose" and secure in place.
*Adhere the hat to the top of the face.
*Apply the Scallop Circle to the back taking care to place the punched out circle over the on/off switch
*Tie coordinating Sweater Trim (Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler or Whisper White) around the base of the tealight.
BARB'S TIP: Hot glue a pin to the back or add Baker's Twine to the top of the hat to create a tree ornament.
*Add to a cello bag and cover with a coordinating piece of card stock cut with the Window Framelits Collection, staple closed
*Stamp greeting from the Tags til Christmas set (Wood #120847 or Clear #121169) and punch out with the 1 1/4 Circle Punch.
*Layer this onto a 1 3/8 Circle and onto the front of the package to cover the staple.
These were pretty hot sellers and I had to take orders for more!!!________________________________________________________________
