12 Weeks of Christmas WEEK 2- Santa & Rudolph Boxes

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.
