Upcycled Book Snowman Christmas Decoration

I got the inspiration for this little snowman from seeing a lot of pumpkins and Christmas Trees made from book on Pintrest. I started by making my own upcycled mini Christmas Tree. But then I started to wonder what other shapes I could make from a book.
I started with a thick paper book.
The shape is pretty simple. All you need to do is trace the design and cut all the pages.
I finished with some white paint on the edges of the pages, some button eyes, a plastic bag scarf, twig arms and an empty spool for a hat.

      If I were to try to cut a book as described, I would put a template on the cover, clamp it down and cut with a jig saw.
