Snowmen Hershey Bars

I made Snowman Hershey Bars last year for craft fairs and I wanted to do them again this year but wanted to try to make them a little different.  I saw these cute Snowman Hats made by a woman named Kerry (sorry I don't know her last name) and finally decided to try them.  I don't have a video to show you, but hopefully these pictures help.  They really were easy to make, and I am NOT a sewer and I could still do it.

Finished Product

Take a piece of fleece that measures 6" wide and at least 5 1/2" long. Fold the piece in half and sew your seam.  To save time I took a yard of fleece and cut it at 6" in width, folded it in half and sewed the whole yard and then just cut at 5 1/2". 

Turn the fleece inside out so you don't see as much of the seam.
Fold the bottom twice to create the brim

I took a piece of thin ribbon and tied it around the top and then snipped my ends.  

To wrap the Hershey bar I took a piece of Whisper White Card Stock that measured 5" x 5 1/2" and wrapped it around the bar and secured it with Sticky Strip.  For the face I used my 1/2" Circle Punch for the eyes,the small circle in the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack for the buttons and just cut the triangle for the nose. Using my Sponge Dauber and Blushing Bride ink I made the cheeks.  My Basic Black Marker was used for the smile, and I finished him off by tying on a piece of retired Fabric.
