Puffy Paint Snowman Christmas Cards

Puffy Paint Snowman Christmas Cards

Pinterest has been a massive inspiration for lots of things, especially craft ideas to do with my daughter. I’ve created an Christmas Board which you can follow for some great inspiration.

Isabelle loves to make cards for any occasion and they’re much nicer than a bought one.

Whilst browsing recently I found this great idea for Puffy Paint Snowman Christmas Cards.

Shivery Snow Paint Snowman Christmas Cards

What you will need:

  • 1 cup of Shaving cream (we used the cheapest we could find)
  • 1 cup of PVA glue
  • Glitter of your choice
  • Peppermint essence
  • Black Card
  • Orange Card
  • Blank cards and envelopes

How To:

Put the glue in the fridge for a while and then mix the glue and the shaving cream together.

Add in the glitter and peppermint essence (not essential). We used our favourite colours, purple and silver and mix again.

Use the paint mixture to draw a snowman (use lots as this will give you a better effect). Using a bigger brush is easier as a smaller brush left marks on the snowman.

Use glitter and stickers to create your snowman
Get your glitter on!

Cut out a hat shape from the black card and a carrot nose from the orange card. For the eyes  and buttons you could use buttons or cut out the shapes in the card. Alternatively we used little sequins to add some extra colour.
