The chap, who owes his well-rounded appearance to old-fashioned honeycomb paper, is sure to spread goodwill. After reading your note (now hidden beneath the snowman's belly), recipients can display the card on a table or a mantel, where it will melt the hearts of passersby.


  • Heavyweight matte paper

  • Scissors

  • Honeycomb paper

  • Pencil

  • Double-sided tape


  1. Download and print the images. Cut out images.


  2. Align the straight edge of the semicircle image so it is perpendicular to the lines of the honeycomb paper. Trace and cut out.

  3. Tape the wrong side of the semicircle image to the honeycomb cutout, aligning the edges. Tape to snowman, matching up illustrations.

  4. Write a message in the lower portion of bottom circle. Fold flaps along dotted lines and enclose the card in a 6-by-9-inch envelope.
