Santa and His Reindeer Gift Box!

One more Christmas project to share with you and then it is time to think about the new year and all the fun projects the year will bring. I made this gift box for my Sister in Law to hold some BBW hand soaps. As soon as I saw this file of Santa in the Silhouette store, I knew had to use him somehow. I know that this Santa will be used next year too.
 
Using the same Nail Polish Tote from Lori Whitlock that I used to make my Baby Sock Tote with this last September, I sized it even larger this time to hold the hand soap bottles. I used some heavy cardstock from my stash and decorated it using paper from Echo Park's Tis the Season Paper Pad that I picked up from Annie's Paper Boutique (Home of Trendy Twine). I then opened up the Santa Sleigh Silhouetted by the Moon file (#52304) and altered it so that I would only have one reindeer and sized it for the front of the box. I used heavy black textured cardstock from my stash for this. I also die cut a Spellbinders Oval die with my Cuttlebug and stamped it using a stamp from My Craft Spot's Naughty or Nice stamp set. Once I figured out how I wanted my Santa placed on the box, I wrapped some Holly Berry Trendy Twine around it. I added the Santa silhouette and the sentiment with pop dots. This was one of my favorite creations of the season.

Happy New Year, Melissa! I pray you had a beautiful holiday season. Your box is adorable and I'm sure your sister-in-law loves it! The style itself is fantastic, but of course I am enamored with your sweet design. The paper is so pretty, the silhouette Santa and reindeer is adorable, and of course the sentiment is perfect. Speaking of which... I can't thank you enough for all of the support you have always shown Kimberly! She means so much to me and you have been a constant encourager of the team on her blog and an enthusiastic customer for her store. You have always showcased her goodies so beautifully, which I'm sure she appreciated. And thank you for sharing your creativity once again with us at My Craft Spot!

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
