Santa Theme Stocking Stuffers

Here's a fun way to jazz up some little gifts for those Christmas stockings. Especially if they are from Santa!!!

I took a package of Extra brand gum and wrapped a piece of red card stock around it. I taped it on the back seam.

I took a piece of white card stock and tore the sides and taped it in the center of the red piece. This is the fuzz or fur on Santa's jacket.

Then I took a 1/2" strip of black card stock and wrapped it around the box and taped it in the back.

I punched out a square from Brushed Gold card stock to form a buckle. I taped it in place on top of the black strip.

Then I took a paper punch and punched out a few black dots for buttons and glued them in place.

That is all there is to this. It just dresses up an ordinary package of gum!! Isn't it cute? You HAVE to make one to see it's cuteness. The photo doesn't do it justice. I held it in my hand and it is just such a cute size. I just can't get over how cute it is and I'm sure it's because of it's size!!!

There are more Santa Theme items on my blog. Just click here to view them! You will have plenty of ideas to fill those stockings or to make a little something for someone special!!

Christmas is just around the corner! You'd better get a move on it if you want to get all those projects done before Christmas!!!! I am behind on my wrapping!! So off I go to wrap. UGH!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting,

This is so cute! I'll have to wait until it's just the "parents" and not "Santa" who does the gift giving to use this idea, as least for home. I think DD would figure it out very quick!
