How to make it

  1. Changing Faces Snowman - Step 1

    With photo editing software or a color copier, enlarge or reduce your photos so your family's faces are about 1 inch tall. Print the photos and cut them into 1 1/2- by 1-inch rectangles.

    Tip: School photos work well here.

  2. Changing Faces Snowman - Step 2

    Cut an 8 1/2- by 2-inch strip of white card stock. Tape a 1 1/2- by 1/2-inch piece of white card stock to the left end of the strip, then fold it over the edge of the strip to create a hook. Glue your photos side by side on the strip (on the same side you taped the hook to), lining up the subjects' eyes and leaving at least 2 inches at the right end of the strip uncovered.

  3. Changing Faces Snowman - Step 3

    Fold the blue card stock in half widthwise. Cut a snowy hill and a snowman with a 1 1/2-inch head from white card stock. Use a craft knife to cut a 1-inch circle from the snowman's face, then glue both pieces to the card, placing the snowman so his head is 1 inch from the right edge and 1/2 inch below the fold.

  4. Open the card and cut a matching face hole in the blue card stock, as well as a 2-inch-long vertical slit parallel to the snowman's head and about 1/2 inch from the edge of the card.

  5. step 5

    Turn over the card and tape the ends of a 2 1/2- by 1/2-inch strip of card stock to the inside edge of the hole for a guide, parallel to the slit, as shown. Slip the photo strip facedown under this guide and out through the slit.

  6. step 6

    Close the card and write "Pull" along the edge of the strip. Draw a snowman's face on the white card stock that shows through the hole, then add arms, buttons, and a card stock scarf, if you like, as well as a holiday greeting.
