Santa and Snowman Rolo Candies

Aren't these guys just the cutest? And if you glue them carefully, you can still eat the Rolo's and not mess them up.
I saw these on Snippets and Pretties blog and knew I wanted to make them.

Here is the Snowman.

And here is Santa. You can use a Black Sharpie to color the Pearls BEFORE you put them on your Santa or Snowman. Just let them dry for a couple of minutes. For the fabric, I just hot glued it to the dsp or Whisper White c/s, glued the edges and added my ribbon on the end. I think I need to rosey up Santa's cheeks!


 Here is what I used to make the Santa:
