I'm on a roll with these Fisher Price Little People ornaments!  Well, that's not exactly true: I just had several to make.  The latest is from a girlfriend with a party blog, a self-professed "party diva."



She's also a wee, tiny red-head so the ginger girl was perfect!



She has a snowman collection out at Christmas time, so I was able to use this wee guy from my stash by making a wee cake out of polymer clay, embossed with a vintage button and painted white.  I made a bunting with scrapbook paper and dental floss (mint flavored!) and a garland with trim left over from this advent calendar project I made last year: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=396391.0
I had tried to make a bunting of fan circles, but it didn't work out so I used the fan folded paper to make a "lamp shade" to cover the nubbin where the string hanger attaches to the ball.  Curtains are from fabric l had and where I got my color scheme.  Red is her favorite color and she also loves pink, so it seemed perfect for a Christmas party.



Snow on the window sills!  The guy could be her husband, but he usually hides out for her parties which are usually ladies only.



I didn't anticipate that the trio of party goers was going to throw off the balance of the ornament which now hangs crooked, so I made a little stand so it can sit on a table or mantle or whatever.

These are the other two Fisher Price Little People ornaments I've posted:

These are just so darn cute. I really want to go to their little party. That snowman cake is adorable. What are you using for the main ornament part?

Thanks, ladypants!  I said ladypants.

I use a 6" paper mache ball that I bought from createforless.com.  Be warned that they are on clearance (so they may be going away) AND that they are plastic inside.  The description doesn't mention this so they were harder to cut than expected and I had to take some extra steps before I could paint the inside.

Thanks!  I feel like I could slide down a very slippery slope with these.
