Santa Suit Favor Box

I saw a similar bag made by another Demo named Cindy Schuster, who is a My Digital Studio demo who's pages I often really like.  I decided that I needed to make up a few of these.  I made about 10 in under an hour, so fast!!  Most had nice little tags and I handed them out to the teachers and aides at the school with gift cards and chocolate in them.  But I made a few with these cute "even naughty people deserve something nice" tags.  The tags were a FREE download at Stampin' Up!  If you didn't grad it already, you should go get it.  Its item number 132810, put it in your shopping cart and there is no tax, shipping or waiting! download it and start using, very fun!  The download embellishment looks sort of written on a chalkboard.  The download also comes with a stamp version, so you can make it any color you want. 
Here is how I made the box.  The base of the box is made from the Fancy Favor Box.  This is a great box, not too big, not to small.  I use it all the time. 

Then I cut out a strip of paper with the same die, just so the top would match.
Then I tore the sides.  Did you know that if you tear towards you, you get a rough edge, but then if you tear away, you get a smooth edge?  For this reason, if your picky like me, you have to tear both sides the same way so they match :)
I like the rough side up so it looks more fluffy, like a Santa suit.  I also added some glitter to the edges. 
A 1 1/2 inch square in silver glimmer paper and a 1inch square in black make a buckle.
Add some tissue and your done! 

I printed out a sheet of the free tag download and attached them to my bags with a bit of ribbon. 
Thanks for stopping by!
