Santa Candy Box

How about a Santa Candy Box?

This little Santa box was cut from the Close to my Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge (Z1686), page 22 (or for my Explore friends #M4765A) cut at 8 1/2" I then folded on the scores and then curved the sides with my bone folder.  The belt, buckle and buttons were basic shapes that I adjusted in design space and then cut from some vinyl.  Finally, the beard was made from the the tag layer on page 69 cut down to 1 1/2" and then trimed to fit (put on with a piece of 3-D Foam tape).  The cartridge is available on my website at or by clicking the shopping cart at the top of this blog.  So finally, I filled the box with Hersey's kisses and tied the whole thing together with some  string from the Ruby Mini Melody Accent Collection (so you can get to the candy without destroying the box.  I am going to be thinking about how I can adapt this to Valentine's Day next.  This little box is just too cute!!!
