Snowmen Invitation Card
Make snowmen invitation cards for your kids party, it's easy and it doesn't cost much. You will need A4 sheet white card, A4 sheet of black card, felt tipped pen, silver glitter, a pencil, a ruler, brush, and PVA glue.

Fold white sheet (A4), in 3 equal long rectangular sides, so your paper looks like a rectangular. Draw a snowman shape on the card, look at our picture for guides. Cut the snowman out, leaving it joint at the sides.

Open up the card, and cut 2 hats from the black A4 paper, and stick them on the snowmen heads. Now use a black felt tipped pen to draw mouths, buttons, eyes and use a orange felt tipped pen to draw carrot noses, scarf's, and walking sticks. Finish it off by putting some silver glitter.
