Go! Getters, Accuquilt Blog Hop

Welcome to day 2 of the Accuquilt Go! Getters blog hop.

Go! Build A Snowman- A kid friendly craft!  You know those times when the kids get restless in the winter time, well show them your Accuquilt Go and bring on the fun of building a snowman or two.

You will need the Accuquilt snowman accessories die, circle dies, 2" alphabet, craft foam, sticky back velcro and a framed canvass.  

Maybe you didn't know that you could cut thin craft foam with your cutters!  You bet you can. The kids will love watching the pieces come out in all the shapes.  Use a lot of colors or just a few, that's up to you.  Mix and match the accessories to dress your snowmen.

Don't forget to cut the letters too!

After cutting everything out stick the velcro on the back of the pieces and onto the corresponding spot on the canvass board.  

And now it is time to build the snowmen. 

You can find a PDF of  GO! Build A Snowman at Accuquilt HERE.  You will find a listing of all the dies used in this project in the PDF.  

Here is the schedule for the blog hop, I hope you will visit all of them for lots of great inspiration!
