Here Comes Santa

So many Christmas makes this year but so little time to photograph and share everything with you, here is a quick creation that's getting quiet a bit of use at the moment.

Here Comes Santa Candle Jar

Using Sweet Dixie Here Comes Santa Christmas Dies Designed by Sue Dix from Personal Impressions, both die shapes have been cut from Kraft Card.

The Santa Sleigh has been glued to the inside of the jar using glossy accents the Christmas Village has been cut out twice enabling me to cover the circumference of the Jar.

I added crystal stickles glitter glue randomly to the inside of the jar to add sparkle and using a white pen marked where I wanted to add the snowfall decoration.

The white pen marks are traced over using a Versamark pen and Stampendous Frantage Shabby White Embossing enamel added. When heated this gives a fabulous chunky effect.

Decorated sparingly with ribbon and twine the Candle Jar is completed with a Tea light candle and looks so effective when lite from all angles.

Why not recycle a Jar fill it with treats of your choice and add an LED Tea light into the mix, this really does produce a multifunctional handmade gift.

Thank you for taking a peek, I hope you have been inspired just a little.
