I took an empty Kleenex box, wrapped it in Christmasy paper, inserted some pencils for the class.
Cut from Cricut Christmas Cartridge the Santa (16 tall so it hung off the mat, I just adjusted so the top of Santas hat was on the mat and the bottom didn't get cut), also cut all the trimmings for Santa (using my Gypsy, I hid the pieces I knew I didn't need like his belt, boots & the bottom of the coat), assembled him. Then Using White Polymark Paint, I outlined his coat & hat. Using my Crop-a-dile, I punched enough holes in his hand so the pencil would slide easily thru and clipped the pencil clip to the top of the hand to secure it. I added Blue eyes with MarkIt Pens then topped with Crystal Stickles (Santa needs that twinkle in his eye!)
Today at noon, I hope his teacher is happy with it!
EDIT: She LOVED the box, loved the pencils (the class needs them), she was so very excited! and none of the other moms brought her a thing... I've always taken the teachers a gift at the Christmas parties.
