Two projects!!!!

I have another workshop to do in early December and also Christmas parties to attend that require secret santa and cent sale prizes, so I played today with a box bag and a workshop project. Yep, I know, these box bag things aren't new to most of you but to me they are. I haven't made one before so off I went. I had seen somewhere in the gallery on SCS one of these done as a Santa. That's what I wanted, just the thing. Edited to give credit to the person who gave me the inspiration. I had the best time making this project. It was really simple even if at first the thought of the sticky strip fazed me. lol
Here it is, what do you think? I've changed the colours from the one I saw in the gallery. I liked the black and red combo.
Recipe: Cardstock - Black, red textured, brushed silver metallic
Accessories - Round tab punch, 1 3/8" square punch, NEW scallop border punch, 1/4" and 1/2" round punches, horizontal slot punch, black grosgrain ribbon, sticky strip.
I actually did my Santa box bag after my Carousel note freddo box.
Again I had seen this while surfing SCS gallery and blogs. Edited again to give credit to http://www.learntostampandscrap.com/ for this idea. I altered the scoring measurements slightly. This little box fits a Freddo Frog just nicely. I had a Freddo to put in it, then ate it. rofl Come time to photograph the box, no Freddo. Had to send my son down to the shop to buy a Freddo for the photo shoot. pmsl
Recipe: Cardstock - Soft Sky carousel note, Afternoon Tea DSP (new summer mini), Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Stamps - Live your dream (new summer mini)
Ink - Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi
Accessories - Round scallop punch, 1 3/8" round punch, sticky strip, dimensionals.
The ladies at my next workshop will be making different versions of these depending on who gets what colour Carousel note is in their pack. So what do you think?
Thanks for looking.

Hi Leigh, you've made some great cards and projects lately, but my favourite would have to be the santa bag! How clever!

Love your two projects here!! The Santa bag is such a wonderful idea and the Freddo frog box is yet another way of using those great Carousel notes.

I can see lots of people making up these little Santa bags now!! So cute!
