Telescoping Snowman

CASE'd from Becky of Inking Idaho, with very minor tweaks.  See her tutorial at her blog or I pasted it for you below.
Isn't he just too cute?  Above is him folded up.
Below you see him standing.
I made these to send to my niece and nephew.  Just prior to sending them, I added a rhinestone to the flower in the hat and a small piece of ribbon, so they can hang them on their tree.  This one is made with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.  I made a second one with Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight.  I love using non-traditional holiday colors!

This version is by Becky Roberts:
Hat is the 1” Square Punch - round the top corners with the Corner Rounder. Brim is the Word Window Punch. Cherry Cobbler Waffle Ribbon for hat band and Boho Blossoms flower in Silver Glimmer paper for the snowflake. Tie a Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine bow.

Head is 1-3/4” Circle Punch in Cherry Cobbler. White 1-1/2” Circle from Circles #2 die-cut. Eyes are 1/4” Circle Punch, nose is a wedge from the Pennant die-cut, mouth is hand drawn.

Center Circle is 2-1/2” Circle of Old Olive. It can be from the punch or the Circles #2 die-cut. White is 2” Circle from Circles #2 die-cut. Emboss with Northern Flurry Die Cut. Buttons are the Circle Punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. Arms are from the Snowflake Punch.

Bottom Circle is Scallop Circle #2 die-cut in Cherry Cobbler. White is 3” Circle die-cut. Stamp set is Snow Much Fun.

He is assembled with Silver Mini Brads. When assembling him, place the bottom circle so the stamp design is straight in front of you. Place the middle circle with the arms upside down on top of the bottom circle. Make sure the buttons are straight in front of you. Center him within the white area of the bottom circle and add brad.

Unfold him; put the center piece (that is right side up now) straight in front of you. Place his head upside down on the center circle (upside down is not inside out!) so that his hat is facing down towards the bottom of the snowman. Center him within the white circle of the center piece and add brad.

Unfold him and he should be perfect! If he’s too floppy and keeps collapsing in on himself, smash the brads tighter.
