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.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Hope to have you here again soon.
