2011 Countdown to Christmas - Day 5

Hi everyone,

I spent this morning at my DD7 school for their Celebration of Learning Assembly. All the children in Year 1 and Year 2 got an award and they were so very proud of themselves. It is lovely to see all children being recognised for their own special talents. I can't believe that my eldest will be going into Year 2 next year and that my youngest will be starting school. I really have no idea where all that time has gone.

Enough rabbiting on from me. Here is Day 5's project.

I first saw these gorgeous Santa's on Patty Bennett's blog and instantly decided I had to make them. I have actually made 105 of these cute little fellas and punched out another 95 of them for various classes and the like. DD7 will be giving these ones with the pencils to her school friends. DD5 will be giving some to her preschool friends with the Christmas M&M's.

Here is a closer picture Santa.

To make him you will need the Ornament Punch, the Bird Builder Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Owl Builder Punch and the Boho Blossoms Punch. I also ran the Real Red hat through the Big Shot using Petals a Plenty EF and the Whisper White beard went through using the Elegant Lines EF. I had some Blush Blossom cardstock left over from when it retired but you could get away with using Pink Pirouette or even Blushing Bride. To make his hat and pom pom "Pop" I would suggest you use some Dazzling Diamonds or even use the Silver Glimmer paper for these elements. As these fellas will probably just be destroyed I didn't see the point. 

Thanks for looking.

'Til next time,
