Santa Box

Hope your day is going great. I have had some playtime in my craft room this morning(my son is at Grandma and Grandad's). We are off camping tomorrow...yep,I said camping....not my favourite activity and it's pouring with rain!!! But we'll have fun anyhow. (No,that didn't sound convincing to me either,wonder if there's a B&B near the campsite?!) lol.

 Today I made a Santa gift box to enter over at My Craft Spot. The challenge this week is giftbags/boxes and you should see the amazing DT projects.

I love making boxes and bags and reached for my old favourite,Tags,Bags,Boxes and More. The triangle box was cut at 6",inked and assembled.
I then cut Santa(only the shift cut) at 1.75" from Doodlecharms. Discarded the hat as I used the box for that. Inked all edges,gems for eyes and flocked hat rim  and hat pompom.
Punched some holly and added gems and ribbon.

I really like how he turned out and he would be great hanging from the tree or as a table gift. Think this would work for  a snowman or penguin too. He was so quick and easy to make you could easily run up a batch of them.

Thanks for stopping by. Call back tomorrow for the winners of The Back to School blog candy.
Have a wonderful evening.

  15. I love this Jayne! I love how you used the box as Santa's hat, how clever are you!? It is adorable!

  16. Oh my Jayne this is terrific!! I don't have TBBM but I have a cake box that would work!! Totally going to try this!! TFS!!

  17. Absolutely adorable Santa! It also reminded me that I haven't used TBBM in such a long time ~ I think I will have to get it out and make some Santa treat boxes. TFS!!

  18. Hi Jayne, I love this Santa box. TBBM is one of my favorite carts. You have made my day by sharing this amazing Santa. Love the flocking too. I think making enough to make a cake or pie shape for a party would be so much fun. Actually I like your idea to make Penquins and Snowmen, wouldn't that make a fun set for the Holidays. Oh, thank you so much for the inspiration. Will have to make this box.
    Have a great week and fun camping...I would rather be in a B&B

    Cheers, Karen
