Santa Is Coming

 


He will be here very soon!  Now is the time to be making your lists and holiday cards.  Create this fun Santa Suit card using handmade paper for a fun new look.

Start by using the Papermill Pro Kit to create a red and black sheet of paper.  Use the basic instructions to help you with those.  Once they are dry, create a 5" x 7" card base from the red sheet.  Cut a 1 3/4" x 5" strip from the black paper and attach it to the front about 1 3/4" from the bottom of the card.  Stamp your favorite sentiment in black ink.

Now, use the Jolly Santa mold and some cotton linters to mold Santa.  An easy way to get a perfect round circle from any round mold is to use a small glass that fits around the design once the piece has dried and trace around the glass.  Use a pair of scissors to trim the edge where you have traced.  This will give you a clean edge and a good round circle.  Add color to the design by using your favorite colored pencils.  Who doesn't love to color, right?


This holiday season be on Santa's good list and start a new hobby or continue to have fun with an old one.  Today is the last day to use promo code THANKS20 so be sure to get your purchases with this code in before midnight tonight.  It's a great time to get the things you need to start papermaking!
