You’ll never guess where I got inspiration for this Iridescent Ice Snowman Coaster Magnet! I found it on Pinterest but what I thought was an outdoor Christmas decoration actually was a Snowman candy pop on a stick! So even if you see something cute to eat, you can also make it into a stamping project!
When I went looking in my stash for some round coasters to make an ornament, perhaps, I found these much larger 5″ cork coasters from a craft store, which I thought were great. When I turned them over, here they all had a magnetic strip on the back! So this is really a magnet! Cute to stick on the fridge for sure!
I traced around a piece of Whisper White card stock to cut out, but ended up gluing the coaster to the card stock and trimming off the edges, but I think it would have been better to just cut out the circle in the first place. As I was getting ready to glue on the embossed cap, I remembered I had thought to stamp Versamark ink all over the card stock face of the snowman and emboss with Iridescent Ice to get the glittery sparkly snow look. THEN I glued on the cap, the band at the bottom, and the tassel at the top. I think I should have sponged some Craft White ink on all the pieces to make them stand out a little better. Then I punched out black circles for the eyes (1/2″ Circle Punch) and circles to form the mouth (Owl Punch) and just hand cut his carrot nose. The little highlights on his eyes are with the Chalk Marker. You should always put a little highlight in eyes.
