Welcome to day 4 of my 25 days of Craftmas series. Today, I’m showing you how to make these cute snowman favor tins.  These little tins are a great favor to use at a table or to give away to family and friends.  They can be filled with Christmas candy or even little Christmas toys. I’m excited to show you how to make your own.  Read on for the full tutorial!

The first thing you’ll need to do is get the free SVG file you’ll use for this project.  I keep all the SVG files I use for the projects I make in my SVG Library.  These SVG files work with Cricut and Silhouette machines, as well as many others.  This library is open to everyone and is free!  You can access the library here. Look for the file called Snowman Favor BA2104. It will be listed under the Craftmas 2022 Category-Day 4.



Open the designs in your software program.  Keep everything grouped together and resize the design to 1.95″ high (or .05″ smaller than the diameter of your tin). Then, you can cut the different colors with your cutting machine.

Once the cardstock is finished cutting, remove it from the cutting mat.  You’ll want to slightly bend the cutting mat and carefully pull off the cardstock.


For each snowman, you’ll need the following pieces cut out of cardstock.  I used a combination of dimensional foam tabs and glue to assemble the snowman.  You can use just glue, but I liked the added dimension the foam tabs give the snowman.

Place a couple of foam tabs on the back of the bigger circle.

Then, attach the circle to the lid of the favor tin.

Add some glue to the back of the scarf and place it on the top of the large circle.

Use the foam tabs to attach the head to the scarf.

Now, add some foam tabs to the back of the shoes and place those at the bottom of the circle.  The shoes should extend past the tin a little bit.

Doing this should stop the tin from rolling when it’s standing up.

Glue the googly eyes to the center of the circle.  Then, attach the carrot-shaped nose below the eyes.

Glue the holly leaves and berry onto the hat.

Add some foam tabs to the bottom of the hat.

Press the hat on the top of the snowman’s head.

Fill the tin with some Christmas-colored candy and this cute snowman favors is ready to go!

Isn’t it adorable?  So cute!
