Some may think that following 80 different blogs is a bit much....but, I tend to disagree *hee hee*. How else would I have found this cute little ol' guy??
Angie Juda over at Chic 'n Scratch is amazing! She is constantly reinventing herself. How she can sit down with 8 punches and come out with this is just mind boggling. She has a fantastic video on how to assemble him at: http://chicnscratch.typepad.com/chicnscratchlive/2009/11/punch-art-santa-video.html.
I added my Santa to a snack pouch. These are super easy to make and if you need a lot of them, the perfect choice. Pick your cardstock and cut to 2 3/4 x 8 1/2. Score at 3 3/4 and 4 3/4. Fold at the score lines and staple at the top. We will be covering your staple with some Designer Series Paper. Pick one that coordinates with your cardstock and cut to 2 1/2 x 3 1/2. My mat for Santa was cut to 2 1/4 x 3 1/4.
I've been growing my collection of punches over the years and love to find new ways to use them. I must say...this is the most I've ever used at one time! If you're interested in your own Santa and don't have the punches, I'd be more than happy to put a kit together for you. Just pop me an email.
