Holly Jolly Santa

I wanted to make some Santa bags and found one by Demonstrator Terri Ransom.  I didn't have the exact punches she used, but using the punches I have I was able to create my version.  Thanks Terri for your inspiration.

To make the Santa I used Real Red cardstock and the Top Note Bigz Die for the front and back of the back.  I left the back plain, and decorated the front with a variety of punches to create the face.  Blush Blossom cardstock (retired) was used for the face.  The handle is a 3/4" x 12 inch strip of Christmas Paper (not SU), and attached to the bag (purchased at a craft store) with brads.

To make the Santa Bag I used the following:
Cardstock:  Real Red #102482, Whisper White #100730, Blush Blossom (retired)
Ink:  Soft Suede #115657 (sponged around the eyes and nose), Real Red #103133
Punches:  Boho Blossom #119858, 1 3/4 Scallop Circle #119854, 1 3/8" Oval #119863, 1/2" Circle #119869, 5 Petal Flower #119880, Curly Label #119851
Embellishment:  Dazzling Diamonds #102023, Silver Brads #104336
Accessories:  2-Way Glue Pen #100425, Big Shot Machine #113439, Top Note Bigz Die #113463
