Ho Ho Ho !!

Today I am re-visiting a post which was originally posted a couple of months ago - as I have now made a video tutorial showing you how to create a similar Santa Treat Box to the one shown below, using the Envelope Punch Board.

Christmas is a little way off - but that has not put me off thinking of more fun packaging for those little Christmas treats. 

I assembled my punches and dies and came up with this cheerful little chappy !!!!!! 

The Moustache die is now sadly retired, but you could very easily improvise, as I have with the one in my video tutorial below.  In the video I use my Bird Builder Punch to create a cute alternative little moustache and the 7/8 Circle Punch for the belt buckle.

I used my 1 3/4 and 2 3/8 inch Scallop Circle punches for Santa's beard and hair and my 2 1/2 inch Circle Punch for his face.  I also used the little 7/8 inch Scallop Circle Punch for the pom pom on his hat which is simple a triangle scored at an angle.I even gave him some eyebrows using a weeny retired punch, which I also used for his buttons. You could fashion eyebrows by using little circle punches and punching out little crescent shapes (like tiny crescent moons) as demonstrated in my video. 

Santa's boots are made using the Extra Large Oval Punch

Crafting is all about improvising with what you have sometimes and should be fun, inventive and creative.  

This is my new video tutorial, which I do hope you enjoy:
