Sara’s Friday Mashup Challenge # 188 :
We did this cute Santa Nugget Box using the Top Note Bigz Die at class this week:
I used the measurements for the box that connects to the SU Top Note Bigz Die
from Sharon Rivera’s Halloween treat HERE.
I love that the entire project only uses one sheet of cardstock
(1/2 sheet for the Top Note die cuts and 1/2 sheet for the box/tag.)
*TIP: To make the fur (1″ wide) and belt (3/4″ wide), just make a plus sign on the Top Note die in the middle of each of the vertical and horizontal planes. It is a quick way to have a perfect match with no cutting on the pointed middle edges on the top and bottom. Both are cut at the same time! Then emboss the fur with the SU Perfect Polka Dots EF. I used the Curly Label punch to make the belt buckle.
The sentiment tag was made with the retired SU Oh, Goodie Stamp set cut with the Itty Bitty Banners Framelit that sits on the long narrow banner from the SU Gift Card Thinlit Die. When you cut for the red box, you have your scrap to make the tag.
Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #111 asks us to use a tag this round so I am adding it to the gallery over there. I just loved the “HO HO HO” sentiment with the Santa!
Great little gift that is quick to make filled with some yummy chocolate that anyone would be happy to receive. What else do you think you could fill this box up with for someone?
