Magic of Santa

Who could be more magical than Santa? He brings joy to everyone who knows him, he can be at so many places at one time, and so many people believe in him, yet they may have never seen him. That's the magic of Santa.




                                             (this one is blurry, but get a better idea of the image)

I altered this Altoid tin to hold a small gift.  I used gesso, card stock, Distress Inks, Stickles, Distress Paints and markers, and Perfect Pearls mist on the front and Versamark ink, clear embossing powder, Distress Inks, Archival Ink, and  alcohol ink on tissue paper on the back. I cut an old Christmas carol out of a music book for the inside and altered with heat embossing, Distress Ink and Perfect Pearls mist. I used Tim Holtz Merry Christmas stamp set for all images and plastic letters, alcohol ink and Glossy Accents for the sentiment.

This was so much fun to make! I'm entering him in Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Magic and Here Comes Santa Challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin.


  1. Santa is magic!

  2. What a great idea for the challenge, Santa is magic indeed. Lovely altered tin and beautiful stamping. Thank you so much for sharing some magic with us this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

  3. This is just fabulous! I love this little tin all dressed up. What a great idea and it would be a great holder for those pretty stick-pins I make! Wonderful project and thanks for the inspiration! Thanks for joining us at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' this month and hope to see you again for our next challenge! Hugs, Gail
