Santa has obviously been cutting back on the carbs lately. (I cannot say the same)

I’m quite please with how the notepads I’m sharing today turned out.

When Pinterest first became popular, I noticed a cute Santa card (not even sure I pinned it but I’ve seen it a few times since then) but knew I didn’t have the patience to make all the pieces to recreate the card) that was basically Santa’s face/beard/hat using different paper punches and dies.  I’ve even seen a few simple tag versions of Santa along the same lines.

I wanted to make the notepad and beaded pen sets I make every year but do something “different” with them this time around and decided to try to make my own version of Santa.  It was a bit fiddly to do but now I have my dimensions/measurements so it will get easier to make them should I decide to do more…here are my “Skinny Santa Notepads”:

Pretty cute, if I do say so myself!  I did use 2 circle punches for the moustache (I’m Canadian, that’s how we spell it), nose, mouth and eyebrows…the rest of the elements were simply cut to size. (beard is a rectangle that had the bottom trimmed with a circle die)

I packaged them up for gifting too…

Must ‘stache…lots to do!
