Santa's Hat Box

Hi Stampers,
Today's post is to show you this very cute Santa's Hat box that I made to give to some family and friends.  I found the tutorial on Fran Sabad's blog.  I intend to fill it with cards and tags, but it would be fabulous for chocolates, stamping goodies etc.  I did alter the outside layer measurements to fit the C6 envelopes, made it higher (6 5/8" instead of 5 3/4") than the original and added some of the new Glitter Card for the Pompom.  Also the second diagram of instructions I think the width measurement for the box should be 4 3/4" instead of 4" as stated, because in the notes Fran mentions that piece of card as being 4 3/4" x 12".  Hope that makes sense!! I did have some 12" x 12" card on hand, but you could use A4 card to make the box.  I only used the 12" x 12" for the box on the inside.

Card:  Real Red, Whisper White
Embellishments: Silver Glitter Card, Real Red Gross grain Ribbon, Silver Brads, Silver Cord
Tools:  1 3/8" Circle Punch, Fiskars Trimmer and Scoring Tool, Ruler, Pencil, Dble Sided Tape, Velcro Tab
Hope you like it. 
Thanks' for dropping in today.
