Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

Ya better watch out.. ya better not shout... well actually you will shout for joy when you make this darling Santa treat box!

It's yet another idea from Creations by Patti

Side view

Open the lid to reveal the message to "Enjoy" the contents

To make this project:

(1) Bitty Box in Cherry Cobbler

(1) 1-3/4" Circle in Blush Blossom

(1) 1/2" circle punch in Blush Blossom for the nose

(1) Ornament Punch in Whisper White, cut off the "hanger" part, this is the bottom of the "face"

(2) 2 Step bird Punch - wings only in Whisper White used for the moustache

(1) 1/2" circle punch in Whisper White for the hat

(2) 1/4" circle punch in Black for the eyes

(1) 2-3/8" x 2-3/8" Sticky piece

To make brim of hat, first punch wide oval on a scrap of whisper white CS

Then move the punch up about 1/2" and punch again.

Cut a template 2-3/8" x 2-3/8" square in any color.
Use this template to decide position the punch pieces
on the lid (and to ensure all pieces fit).

Use Bashful a sponge dauber with Blue ink
for the white pieces. Put through the dot embossing folder.

Use a Sponging Dauber to "daub" cheeks with Pretty in Pink Ink.
Adhere beard using 2 Way Glue Pen.
Apply dimensionals to moustache/nose and brim of hat

Remove the solid white layer of the sticky tape, place on top of lid.

Remove the (top layer) orange plastic covering the sticky piece.

Position completed Santa on top of sticky piece.

Generously sprinkle red glitter over the exposed sticky areas.

Tap off glitter

Remove excess glitter with a brush.

The results are so fabulous and festive!!!!

Stamp "Enjoy", punch out with 1-3/4" circle punch, adhere and fill with treats
