Santa Claus is coming to town

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a fantastic week! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you. I created the most adorable Santa box set using the Simply Crafty SVGs Santa Stacking Box Set cut file. O.M.G. Is he not the cutest guy ever?!

The top box is Santa’s top half and his hat comes off to reveal the box. ;)

The bottom box is Santa’s bottom half, and that lid comes off to reveal the box. I haven’t decided whether or not I’m going to put anything in these boxes – I’m thinking I may turn the set into a piece of Christmas decor! What would you do?!

Santa Claus is coming to town

Hello, crafty friends! Happy Sunday – here’s wishing you a fabulous start to your week! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #125 – Anything Goes! Our fabulous sponsor this month is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps so be sure to come on over and play for the chance to win a prize! I created a super cute Christmas card using the Naughty or Nice stamp set, which sadly I don’t see on the website at this writing, however, I do see Naughty-isms which is similar and equally as fun!

You know I absolutely love fun folds, and about three years ago I came up with a combined Joy fold and Z fold, which I called a Joy-Z fold. I haven’t seen another one like this, so I think it’s safe to say this is my own design, lol! If you’re interested, my original card is HERE. This Christmas version is a vertical orientation, done in the traditional red and green color combo, with added bling and a Santa sticker.

Here’s a shot of the Joy fold portion open to reveal the sentiments. Love, love, love! Needless to say, I chuckled a few times while this was in the making! ;)

And here’s a side view so you can see the construction. It really is a cool fold! ;)
