Santa gift bag

Well, I can't believe that today is the last day of school!!  We are officially on Christmas break as of 2:00 PM today, and it is going to be nice.  Of course, I'm still going to have to be there for the sports, but at least it will just be a couple of hours each day.  Hooray for break!

So, I put this together for my friend at work, and SVG Cuts has done it again!  This is from a set called Big Christmas Bags, and they certainly weren't kidding.  This Santa is 11.5" tall - what a great set for gifts!  I made it out of some thicker cardstock to give it some strength, and then used regular cardstock for the details.  The picture doesn't really show the details well, but here goes.  For his hat, I used paper from DCWV that says Ho Ho Ho all over it - can you see it?  Also, his beard, mustache, and pompom on the hat were all run through the Cuttlebug with Divine Swirls.  I used 1/16" pop dots on the mustache, and 1/8" on the nose and eyebrows, which also is not visible here.  Some more patterned paper on the sides from DCWV Tis the Season, and that finished it off.  The second picture is the assembled gift all finished with tissue paper and a ribbon to top it off.  It really looks much cuter in person, seeing all the dimension and details.  Oh well - thanks for looking today!
