Santa Gift Bag!

I have some open crops at my house this week! It's going to be fun! Christmas music, cookies & hot chocolate, and lots of papercrafting! Each day, I am giving each cropper a free gift from me! Here is the first one - a santa gift bag made entirely with the Art Philosophy cartridge!

I saw this idea posted last year by Cathy Stai and never got around to making them. They are adorable!

Would you like to make one too? Here are the pieces to cut from the AP cartridge:

White Cardstock
Hat Rim - 1 1/2", Decorative Layer
Beard - 2 1/2", Shift, Layer
Mustache - 2 1/2", Shift
Head - 3 1/2",
Hat PomPom - 1"

Champagne Cardstock
Face - 1 1/2",

Cranberry Cardstock
Hat - 2 1/2",
Bag - 5", Shift, Font Layer

Assemble bag. Fold flower in half and add 3-D foam tape in between fold to add dimension. Add bracket to top of flower to create mustache. Add to champagne face. (Trim bottom off of face so it won't show through beard.) Add 2 black brads for eyes. Use a little pink chalk on the cheeks. And adhere face to center of white head.

Add hat brim to bottom of hat and white circles to top of hat. (Use center of flower (circle) on 1" circle on top of hat!) Add hat to top of head. Attach to face of bag with liquid glass.

Here is a side view:

Fill with your favorite goodies or gift card! 

Ho Ho Ho and Merry Christmas!
Come back tomorrow for more Cricut fun!
