This is very cute! You could also sew a small loop at the tip of the top of his hat so he could double as a Christmas Tree ornament :-)

The snowman is a great idea and very cute. It could serve as an ornament and hold a small gift besides money. Such as earrings, car keys (for that new Christmas car) gift cards. I think I will make some of these now and put up for next years gift giving. Thanks for sharing this idea with us!
