Elf Kisses Fry Box Version Weekend Project

I had to laugh when I was making this elf fry box.  In my post yesterday I said that I didn't put Frankie's bolts on because they stick out and would bend or get caught on stuff.  Well, here I am today gluing on ears that are sticking out.  But they are folded so they will bend back and not get too ruined.  And I also laughed when I was working on the ears. I got out the bird punch and was going to use the wings for ears.  Talk about teeny tiny ears!!!  I ended up punching a 1-1/4" circle for each ear and then winging it (no pun intended).  I just kind of followed the bird wing a bit and then traced what I did onto the other circle so they were similar.  I scored the edge about 1/4" into the ear so I could bend it and glue it in place.

I used Pink Pirouette card stock for the fry box.  I used a 1" circle punch for the eyes and the pompom on the hat.  The nose is punched from a 1-1/4" circle of Pink Pirouette.  I sponged the nose, ears and around the "face" of the fry box using Pink Pirouette ink.  Oh and I sponged the 2" circle that contains the elf kisses words.

Since I didn't have any Christmas candy (yet) I didn't fill the fry box.  I would wrap up the candy in plastic and tie it together with the circle of elf kisses wording.  The only thing I wish I would have done was to center the words instead of having them all on the left side of the circle.  I think it would have looked much nicer.  I can always change it, after all, there's no Christmas candy in the stores around my home!  I have time!

I think he's silly looking and when I look at his face I just smile!!!  It's elfish!!! LOL  Have fun making these!

The words in the circle are as follows:

With Little elf eyes watching you,
There's not a lot that
Santa misses,
So to help you be good today,
Here's a bunch of sweet
Elf kisses.

I always believe in giving credit where credit is due.  Thank you Kimberly for posting to my blog and letting me know that it's your wonderful poem going around the internet!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
