Santa Claus is Coming to Town!


Santa is really going to be bringing gifts!!  I created this cute gift bag to look just like the jolly old elf!



Over at The Hybrid Chick we decide to try something new. We all used the same template and created to our hearts content.  The template that we used is The Basic Bag Template by Girl Boy Girl Designs.  You should see all the amazing creations that each started out from this template.  You can check them all out here.


I used digital papers to create this gift bag.  They are from the Christmas Retrospect kit by Quirky Twerp.  I cut the bag and the Santa pieces using my Cameo.  The beard, hat trim, and mustache were dry embossed using a Tim Holtz embossing folder by Sizzix.  I then applied some fine glitter and spritzed them with decoupage gloss sealer.

To give him those nice rosy cheeks, I used some chalks. The belt buckle got it's shine from some Ranger Ink Ancient Gold embossing powder.

Now to fill this sweety with some special gifts!!
