Flakeys Face Snowman Paper Mache Boxes

Are you looking for a fun Christmas gift for that hard-to-shop-for person on your list? This snowman shaker box set can be filled with goodies of all sorts AND can can be used as a holiday decoration!  Two gifts in one!  When I saw a set of round shaker boxes on sale at Michael’s, I quickly scooped them up!  By just adding paint and buttons, I made the cutest snowman!


  • Set of three paper mache boxes
  • Assorted buttons (three red, three black)
  • Craft glue/glue gun
  • Acrylic Spray Sealer – optional
  • Sponge brush
  • 1/2″ stencil brush
  • C600 Flakeys Face stencil
  • A4073 Holly Bunch Stencil
  • Craft acrylic paints: white, orange, black, green, dark green, red, pink


  1. Using the sponge brush, coat the smallest box and lid and medium lid in black. Or spray paint.  Allow to dry.
  2. Apply Holly Bunch to the bottom, front edge of the smallest box. (You will need to base coat with white and allow to dry before applying the dark green paint.)
  3. Apply Flakeys Face stencil to the medium sized box. Add a touch of pink for the cheeks. Allow to dry
  4. Spray acrylic sealer over boxes and lids. Allow to dry. (Optional)
  5. Glue red buttons under the Holly Bunch design and black buttons on the largest box.

I filled my shaker boxes with candy but you can fill them with all kinds of small items like jewelry, small toys, candles, baked goods, socks, perfume, scarves….whatever your hard-to-shop-for person loves.
