Santa-tizers

I always try to make a little gift for Christmas for my current stamp club members to show them my appreciation.

This year I came across these totally neat little hand sanitizers in a santa box (Original idea by fellow demo Jan Farring ). I just knew that’s what I wanted to make and bought the sanitizers. Then when I started to work on the first one, it hit me that this would be a LOT of scoring and cutting…etc.

So I am very excited to report that this did not make me change my plan but to put my thinking hat on! I had the measurements for  the box, I figured I’d try to make a template in the program to use with my electronic cutter. AND I was able to do that. YAY!!!!

I am sure I was only able to do that because it such a simple little box Winking smile

Look how cute this little army of boxes looks – work in progress:

Now let me show you the finished little box:

I also know that not all of you have a cutter like that and might want to make one or a few yourself. So I took a screen shot of the template that has the numbers on it. See here:

santa box

In case the screen shot is to blurry, here is the info typed out!

Box:
Cut a piece of real red card stock 5 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Score lengthwise 2-1/4" and 3-1/4"
Turn your card stock and score again 1" and 2-1/2"

Belt:
Cut Basic Black Card Stock 5 1/2" x 3/4"
Attach to box with sticky strip tape.
Punch out a Petite Curly Label Punch from Silver Glimmer Paper. 
Using a 1" Punch, punch out around the Petite Curly Label Punch

The word Santa-tizer, I’ve created in “My Digital Studio” and punched out with the word window punch (left aligned). Feel free to print those directly on our Whisper White CS from here
