3D Scarecrow or Santa Which is it??

Posted by on Nov 9, 2016 in Design Ideas, Techniques | 4 comments

2016badge-watermelonWelcome to the Pals Blog Hop for November 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month our projects feature items that are considered 3D, Home Décor or Gift Sets. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

With Stamping like most other creative medium you can get insiration from anywhere. Mine came from a project that Home Depot had for the holidays.  Now granted their project was made from 2×4’s, and mine from paper but the idea is the same.


Thanksgiving is coming!

Ho Ho Ho, Jolly Day

Ho Ho Ho, Jolly Day






Scarecrow says:

Flip me over and viola I’m Santa


That’s what is really cool about these guys- they are reversable !!  So easy to store and flat, well almost flat Santa’s beard needs a little room.


Here’s what I did.

  • used coaster board in the middle
  • cut the hat brims-9.5 x 1.25, cut card stock and glue on  white  side only– brown side will be glued on after attached to hat so it can be placed over scarecrow’s hair
  • decided on the basic colors and cut the paper-top for hats 5 x 4.75,  faces sections 7.5 x 4.75
  • run both hats through embossing folders- I used woodgrain on scarecrow and softly falling on red Santa hat
  • cut a scrap piece of red for the top of Santa’s hat that is flopping over, I used the snow flake embossing folder
  • Next I lightly ran the Whisper White ink pad over the embossed areas to make the snowflakes and dots stand out.
  • Scarecrow face
    • extra large oval punch in white, 1 inch circle in blue and the bitty 3/8 circle in white-highlights added using white gel pen
    • nose made with the petite pennant builder punch- cut all three colors then cut in thirds orange and yellow on top of white
    • mouth from Home Sweet Home die
    • hair fringe scissors crumb cake
  • Santa face
    • Paisley die for brows
    • 3/4 in circle for eyes-highlights white gel pen
    • nose 1 inch circle
    • mustache die
    • beard scallop circle punch about 18-20 crumpled, some cut in thirds or in half to cover the edges


  • attach hats to either side of coaster board (I always use tombo liquid but any adhesive will also work
  • attach face piece (without eyes, nose and beard etc for easier handling)
  • cut you crumb cake with fringe scissors this will attach to the brown hat brim before it is connected to hat
  • decide on slant of hat brim-make sure covers where the papers meet  on both side then attach to Santa side of door hanger
  • turn over attach brown piece  (this piece will attach to the coaster board on the ends but directly to cardstock in the middle with the fringe hair glued between face piece and hat brim)-be sure to put glue on both sides of the fringe piece so it attached to the face and hat brim)
  • lastly attach all features– eyes, noses, mouth, hat flop over piece, with 1 3/8 silver ball and beard
  • sponge some pink for rosy cheeks
  • use crop a dile to punch holes in the top corners add ribbon for hanging-enjoy!

This project will add a sense of joy and some giggles too.  So, spread the love and make some for a friends, family or neighbors, as well as, yourself.

Hugs and kisses to all. Enjoy this holiday season and as I am writing this on election day be thankful it is finally over, no matter who won!
