It's almost Christmas time guys and it's time to start looking for little gifts... If you are creating some of your presents yourself or want to present your gifts in a super cute way, I have an idea for you. I decorated fun little boxes with the adorable new Hello Santa Doodle Cuts from the Candy Cane Lane collection.

Like I said, in previous posts, I just love the new stand-alone Doodle Cuts. With these Hello Santa ones, you can create a little Santa in each and every color you want!

To start, I selected my papers. I didn't want to only create red Santas, so I also chose the Much Love cardstock with the pink heart pattern as well as the Plaid it's Christmas Cardstock.

Since I also wanted to change up his face a bit, I cut out the face, using the corresponding die, only once and for the other ones, I just traced the outlines, so that I could draw on my face later. 

For the shoes, belt and mittens, I used black and brown cardstock and for the belt buckle, I used gold glitter paper. When I paper pieced everything together, I also changed up the arms. For the red Santa, I cut both of them off and adhered them with the arms looking down. For the pink one, I adhered one of the arms a bit lower. 

As you can see from my three characters, even if you only have one die set, you can create a lot of different looks... :)

After adding details, like cheeks, eyes, mouth, white highlights and scribbly lines on the white parts, I adhered my Santas on two circles,  one regular, one scalloped. Then I adhered them to a rectangle, that fit the cover of my box.  I added a zig zag stitch to my rectangles.

I decorated the boxes a bit more, using die cut pieces from the Chit Chat and Odds & Ends packs along with some mini jewels.

I also adhered three Odds & Ends to wood clips and added those to my designs.

To make the box even more fun, I created tassels, with paper beads, that I made myself, and plastic beads.  I really love the little boxes and can't wait to gift them to someone.

...Not with the things on this photo though... those are mine... :) Hahahaaa.. I hope you enjoyed this little idea and are ready to start crafting. I wish you a wonderful week...
