Craft Show Favorite

This is “Craft Show Week” for me, and this Santa fry box is probably my favorite new thing to make this year.  Unfortunately, almost all of the pieces are made with old products!  I still had to share, though – maybe you have a lot of these retired goodies, or maybe you have some good substitutions.

First, there’s the fry box.  I added a 1″ Basic Black belt, with a 1 3/8″ square Silver Foil buckle and a 1″ Basic Black square.

Do you recognize the hair and beard?  It is cut from one of the retired Wonderful Wreath Framelits.  The mustache is cut form a retired framelit.  The face is Blushing Bride, cut with a retired oval punch, but you could substitute an oval framelit.  The nose and eyes are 1/2″ circles.

The hat is made with one of the retired Delicate Ornament Thinlits, and the pompom is made with a retired 7/8″ scalloped circle punch.  I’m sorry for all of these retired products…but if you are a collector like me, you might have them all too!!  LOL!  I just love this cute little Santa and had to share.

  2. So cute! And as it happens, I have all of the punches, thinlits and framelits too – what a wonderful use for the Wonderful Wreath framelits.


    • Thanks! I know it can be frustrating when the projects shown are made with retired products…but also know there are many of us out here who own many of these classics 🙂

  3. I’m so glad you shared this, too cute not too! An I have all of these retired goodies too!!

  4. So very, very cute and clever, Chris! I love it when our older products are used…it makes them feel like they’ve still got some life in ’em!

  5. Awesome use of the wreath framelit. Definitely super cute Santa.
