5) Place the tree sticker in the background.
6) When the Hearty Clay is dry, glue the snowman into the box.
7) Add some Flower Soft and glitter to the box before closing.
8) Adhere a snowflake sticker to the front of the box.
9) Starting at the center top of the box, glue the ribbon down the center of the box sides, covering the seam.
10) When the ribbon reaches the top center form a loop and glue the end down.
11) Wind some of the mini holly garland around the loop and glue it in place.

 

Tips: You can form some multicolored pipecleaner into a cap and glue it onto the snowman sticker without a hat. Add a miniature bell to the tip of the cap. If you use the blue sticker paper in the package for the background, you will need to glue a paper to the back of the tag so the sticky back doesn’t show. This second paper will be good for writing on the tag. If you use the double-sided paper inside the tag then you can write on the tag with a marker for slick surfaces.
