Jiffy Pop Popcorn Snowman


Why don't you sit down on my Red Couch and rest for a few minutes?

January is the perfect month to celebrate snow and snowmen!  Yesterday I got together with my Activity Day girls (church) and made these cute little guys.  Remember Jiffy Pop Popcorn when you were a kid?  I love how it pops up into a silver turban.  I received the pattern from my mother-in-law Geniel.  The girls enjoyed making them and they were super easy to make.

  My daughter and I enjoyed making the Jiffy Pop Popcorn; I haven't had it in years.

Materials and Instuctions:

1 container of Jiffy Pop Popcorn
Black Cardstock
White Cardtock
Orange Cardstock
Ribbon or Plaid Cardstock
Blush
Glue
Scissors



1)  Trace a circle around the top of the Jiffy Pop Popcorn container on white cardstock; you will have to cut it a bit to fit under the black metal rim.  This is for the face of the snowman.  2) Cut out an orange nose.  Cut out five black pieces for his coal  mouth.  Cut out two larger black pieces for his coal eyes.  Glue the mouth, eyes, and nose on the snowman.  Appy blush on his cheeks.  Gently pull back the black metal cuff of the Jiffy Pop Popcorn container and insert the face of the snowman.  When the snowman face is in place, fold the black metal cuff back to its original position.  3)  Cut out two pieces of black cardstock in the following sizes:  7 x 2-1/2 inch and 3-1/2 x 4 inch.  The first one is for the brim and the second is for the hat.  Glue the hat on the brim and then glue to the snowman face.  Then glue on ribbon or patterned cardstock for a decoration on the brim.  Sit back and enjoy your creation.  

Have some fun in the snow today; it won't last forever!

He is absolutely adorable! I love his cute nose and rosy cheeks. What a fun Christmas neighbor gift this would be too. We love watching the popcorn grow - it is magical. They are sooo lucky to have you as their leader.

)0h, just as I was signing out I noticed the snowmen in the background. How cute are they. I hadn't noticed them yet.
