Fancy Santa Candy Wrapper

What's Christmas without Santa? Well, I got a Santa candy wrapper for you! I've seen the idea of Santa's face with embossing beard as a cello bag topper all over Stampin' Connection. So, I thought I use it on a candy bar. This is another way to use the Ornament Punch that I promised to show you and this is my husband's favorite candy wrapper by far! Men, they always wonder why we dress up our candies!

He's quite fancy with all the glimmer paper, isn't it? For those of you who visit my blog, thank you! I got a bonus for you - a funny looking Santa! :) I was working on the Tag 'til Christmas stamp set and wanted to use the Santa's suit for a 3-D gift. At the end, I decided not to use it because it looks like a wanna-be-Santa elf! Anyhow, I want to share with you my process because it's still cute!

Stamp Sets: Tags 'til Christmas

Edit for Update: This measurement is for wrapper with crimps at the bottom. Hope this helps.

Santa's face: Layer the large oval (Blushing Bride) over on the Extra-Large Oval. Trim the embossed Ornament punch to round the top and layer onto the face. Add Real Red circle for the lip (from the Owl Punch), White mustache (from the Bird Punch), and the Blushing Bride circle for the nose (from the Owl Punch). Add the black circles for the eyes. The hat is made from the Extra-Large Oval and embossed. Add glimmer paper circle on the left side (from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack).
