Punch Pal Santa

Do you like him? I made half a dozen of them to decorate goody bags for my son's Christmas party.

We had six five year olds & the tree survived, just! Never again, we were counting down the minutes before they were due to be picked up!! They weren't being naughty, just over excited as it was only 2 days before Christmas.

Anyway, I found the instructions for this cute character online ( I think it was Stamp with Heather's blog). If you do a search on Google for punch art loads come up, I'm going to be doing plenty more of this in the future.

I adapted Heather's design as I used the Word Window punch for his arms, the 5 Petal flower for his boots & added a belt (using the 1 3/8" Circle punch) finished off with a 1/4" Square for the buckle.

Punch Pal are great for using all those little scraps of card we have, mine are kept in plastic wallets in their colour families (I've been doing some tidying) so I can find the colour I need easily.

Thanks for looking, & Happy New Year!

PS Back to work for me today....Boo Hoo!!
