I found these guys were easier to make when pieces were assembled prior to cutting. For example on the Santa I glued a piece of Basic Black Cardstock onto some Real Red Cardstock before running it through the Big Shot. The black belt cut perfectly! Then all I had to add was the glimmer paper belt buckle. His beard I did separately, I cut 2 pieces of White Cardstock using the scallop oval from the Oval Framelits Collection. Then the were trimmed and stuck on the back inside of the fry box. Add a quick nose and you're done!!! I did add some 'boots' on him I thought it was a cute addition. It's just a 1 inch circle punch cut in half. Fill with some 'Santa kisses' (or treat of your choice) and it's done!
The elf was done in a similar fashion, I took a piece of White Cardstock and notched out some triangles with the Christmas Tree Punch then stuck it to some Old Olive Cardstock before cutting it out. Then all that I needed to do was add some suspenders-how cute are they!!!!!?!?! To finish him I added some bells and bakers twine. So cute and who doesn't love a box that's filled with chocolate and jingles!!!??! I'm excited about the next 11 weeks! Keep checking back!!!!
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!!
