Merry Christmas from Kathy's Cottage

I know, December first is terribly early to be opening Christmas gifts. I just couldn't wait!  You know how when you have a giveaway you wish you could send a little something to everyone who comments? I decided, rather than a giveaway, I would give you all something fun. These little boxes are perfect for small candies, cookies or toys. They can be perched on a co-workers desktop, or string ribbon through their hats and hang them on the tree or as a banner!  I made four different Santas and the numbers and they are all available to download on my Graphics page.
 I taped the corners of the numbered signs to Santa's hands for a 3-d effect.
 Make one, or make them all. All you have to do is print, cut out and fold.  Maybe a little glitter around the band of his cap? Some lace or trim here and there would be cute.
Just for you, from me. Thanks for visiting all year long, the kind comments, the endless support and advice.  You all make my life better:>)

Hugs

These are so cute, Kathy. Did you design them all by yourself?? If so you really must consider designing for some of the online downloadable graphic companies. These are just the type of things they sell. By the way ~ your blog is a pleasure to visit.

Well, Kathy girl...I am just thrilled to death. Now, do I just get some cute paper and put it in my printer and print them? So cool....

Oh, thank you, my friend! I love these little Santas. I'm thinking I may print out enough for each of my grandkids to have one when our family gathers for our Christmas celebration. I may figure out something special to put inside or to attach. Just thinking it would be fun! Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent. I love coming here to visit. Hope your holiday season is blessed.

These are gorgeous, and I love how you created the Graphics Page. These would look awfully cute on fabric. Are these your designs? I love them. They are brilliant. Thank you for giving them to us.
