HOT FLASH!!!!! What happens when a snow woman gets a hotflash?

 How cute are these?  These have always been a big seller for me at my shows. They are so easy and fast to make.
 Here are the supplies you will need:
card stock, toothpicks, glue sticks, plastic snowman hats, beads for eyes or google eyes, brown, orange and white paint.
 Paint some toothpicks brown and some orange. While these are drying:
 Cut 1"x 1" squares with fancy scissors from the card stock.
 Using a fine tip Sharpie marker, write on the squares.
 Once the toothpicks are dry, cut both ends of the orange toothpick about a 1/4" in size.
 Using the brown toothpick, glue it to the back of the hot flash card stock to make a sign.
 Cut the sharp end off of the toothpick so it is flat.
 On a metal cookie sheet, spray it with Pam, and then add a blob of glue from the hot glue gun.
 Place the snowman hat onto the warm glue
 Then add the eyes and toothpick nose, pressing them into the warm glue.
 Next place some more hot glue to the side of the hat and keep adding glue around the base of the toothpick sign.
 You will need to just keep adding small amounts of glue up the toothpick.
 Hold the sign in place until it dries.  It won't take very long to dry.
 Once the glue is set, take a razor edge and peel it off of the metal pan.
Wipe off any excess oil from the bottom of the snowman and then paint it white.  Let it dry and TADA~
