St Nicholas Santa Sleigh Candy Dish with Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts

Happy Saturday!!! I am so glad you stopped by today!!! I am sharing my St Nicholas Santa Sleigh Candy Dish using the Santa Sleigh Chipboard and Christmas Shapes from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Store.

I began by first tracing the sleigh shapes on to my designer paper with a pencil. Fussy cut out trace image. (I use my Xyron Creative Station to apply my adhesive on my paper but any adhesive will work.) Apply adhesive to paper cuts and place on chipboard.

Mask off the pattern paper with post-it notes to protect paper. Apply Boss Gloss to sleigh runners and apply embossing powder. Heat set. Repeat for other prepared sleigh.

Continue using Boss Gloss and embossing powder to emboss sleigh runners chipboard outline pieces. Form sleigh and adhere prepared runners to the sides.

Cover Christmas Shapes with pattern paper; adhere to side of prepared sleigh.  Add bow, chipboard and charm to side.

Add metal door pull and bow to front of sleigh.

Add chipboard piece to back of sleigh and fill with your favorite candy.

I hope I have inspired you to grab some Christmas paper and Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Chipboard to create a wonderful candy dish or other home decor for you or for a gift.

St Nicholas Merry Christmas Card and Blessing Boxes with Graphic 45

Hi all my Scrapbook Flair we are getting ready for the Christmas season I was wondering do you have any fun family traditions. 
Today I am sharing one with you that our family does. 
Each year we give each of our family members a special ornament at Thanksgiving dinner.
 Each ornament has a small memory of what they experienced in that year; ie like two of our grandchildren became part of a swim team. 
This is a keepsake for each of them and allows them to have a fabulous time as they decorate their trees going through each of their special ornaments. Pam

Check out How to A Graphic 45 St Nicholas Merry Christmas Card by Pam Bray on Snapguide.

One of the other things I love, love, love to do is make special Christmas Cards. 
Today I created a 6" x 8" St Nicholas Merry Christmas Card. 
To see all the details of both of my projects make sure to check out my Snapguide and please feel free to follow me. 

Another fun idea is doing a Blessing Box for each of your family or to have at each table setting. 
You can place a small note for each of your guest, fill it with candy or some other special item. 

I hope you have enjoyed my photos of my St Nicholas Merry Christmas Card and Blessing Boxes. 
I would love to see and hear of some of your traditions and hope you have a fun filled holiday season. 
Hugs Pam
