Santa Pouches

I've been working today on some treats for the little ones that come to our Christmas celebration. We usually don;t buy presents for the kids of our nieces and nephews (it would cost a fortune). But I like to have something for them to open during the celebration. So I found this Santa suit made out of a paper bag at Flowerbug Inkspot's blog..

The red papers measured the width of the paper bag and the height was 3 and 3/4 inches. The black belt was 1and 1/2 by the width of the bag. The buckle I made from green glitter paper measuring 1 and 1/2 by 1 and 1/2 with a 1 by 1 inch square for the middle. I punched two small button from black paper and used a gel pen to make the light reflection.

The round tags were made from Lawn Fawn's stitched dies. I stamped a snowflake on the tag and then my sentiment and I write the name of each of the kids on their tag. I put a bag of M&M treats in each pouch tied with red and green twine.

I am entering these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by tonight. Our family mourns tonight. My MIL passed away this evening. She is now at peace and her struggles are over. She's with the Lord. Please tell someone you love them today. Have a wonderful week!
