12 Weeks of Christmas WEEK 2- Santa & Rudolph Boxes


WEEK 2:
The Top Note Die is seriously one of the most versatile dies Stampin' Up! sell.  It comes into it's own around Christmas time in my home where it gets a total work out!  I use it for lots of things from gift bag toppers, money and gift card holders to these cute little boxes.

Top Note Santa & Rudolph gift boxes
You need to get a bit crafty with your punches to make these but they are well worth the effort.  In between each Top Note Die is a Fancy Favour box.  You can fill these with a bag of lollies, chocolate, anything that you can find that fits in the box.  For Santa I have used the new Lacy Brocade embossing folder. ( I did warn you I would be going crazy with this folder!)  I have included what you need to create these guys, but if you would like a detailed tutorial, let me know & I can email you one.
