How to Make A Snowman bookmark

I loved painting each one of these little guys...they make for the perfect stocking stuffer! They each have their own unique little face with a smile! I love to read a good paperback and just like the smell and feel of holding a real book. You can just never have enough bookmarks!

So here is how I made them!

First tape down  your paper and separate each bookmark shape - I like to put a 1/4" border around mine.

Then I pencil in my snowman shapes.

 Using Black gouache paint I painted my backgrounds.

Once the backgrounds are dried I put in the faces and orange carrot nose.

Using White gouache and a small brush I add snow to the tops of the nose and head and then take a  wet toothbrush,  splatter the snow flakes.

Remove the tape once they are dry.

Trim and cut them separately. It's okay that no two are exact - that what makes them hand made!

Then just pop in a hole punch at the top and pull a ribbon through!

Then package them up for the holidays!
