My Sweet Little Santa Box

The Holiday Season is coming fast and I was ever reminded how fast it was coming when our weather went from a high of 86 on Monday to 51 on Tuesday and 45 yesterday.  Tonight we are under a frost advisory.  So I got in the mood to work on some Christmas projects for my upcoming workshops.
Check out my Sweet Little Santa Box.

I had seen the Santa Gift Bag on Sarah Will's Blog and loved it.  But I wanted to make it easier for my customers to make so I set out to make it using Close to My Heart’s new exclusive Art Philosophy Cartridge.  Now isn’t it just stinkin’ cute?  I used Sarah’s easy downloadable instructions to make the box, but the rest of it is mine. 
Here is a close-up of my Santa’s face.

I think I am in love!  Just kidding, but he is super duper cute.
