Ooooh Not a Card!!!

Well I had decided I was going to try and make all I could for this christmas, and I found a pillow box template which I thought would be perfect for the little gifts and for the teachers if I fill those ones with chocolates. So here is the first one I have made, the piccy is not the best no matter how much I try my camera doesnt want to work well!. This one is for my sister, and does look a little more pretty in the flesh.I used a sizzix santa which was in hiding, I cut him 3 times so I could add some layers to him, I then ran one of the layers through the divine swirls folder and added glamour dust to all the swirls.I added stickles to his moustauche. The tag, I cut from a nestie and stamped a hero arts greeting, attached the two together, and added some sparkly silver ribbon, I curled the ends with my scissors.
I have all the teacher ones, cut scored, stamped and coloured ready to go, just need the choccies! I cant say whats in the box just yet, but my wonderfully talented friend Heidi made it for me!, If you havent had a peek at Heidis blog you should if you have 5 minutes, you will find the most awesome altered art there! http://duckfacealtermyworld.blogspot.com
Well I think I am going to cut some sizzix santas out in front of the telly now, ready for when I need them. Have a good evening all.x
