Time sure has a way of slipping by, really fast! Besides working, I've had two craft fairs and just came back from spending a week with my Dad in Massachusetts. I have been working non stop on my crafty adventures, yet didn't take photos of every thing. I did take some, and I just edited them all, so I'm going to start posting. There are few goodies left from Halloween and Thanksgiving that will be sprinkled in with the Christmas crafts.
A few years back, after Halloween, I bought a whole bunch of take out boxes that where on clearance for 90% off. I really just wanted the handles so that I could make different boxes. I finally got around to making them and thought they would be perfect to pack a small Christmas gift or baked good.
Using some paper punches, Nestabilities, and my handy dandy Cricut Explore, I was able to make the face for my Santa. I absolutely love the Cricut Explore, the possibilities are endless! For added dimension, I used an embossing folder, textured paper, and my favorite pop up dots. I tied the candy canes to the top with a piece of baker's twine to make it look like chop sticks on top of Chinese food take-out.
Paper: Bazzill, Recollections
Misc: Candy canes, baker's twine, paper punches, white gel pen, Cricut, Stickles, My Favorite Things Scalloped Border Die-Namics, Cuttlebug Swirls Embossing Folder, take out box handle
