How to Make 

1. Print the free template and cut it out.


2.Draw around the main body of the template around your chosen Simply Creative Jingle Bells 12x12 paper design and cut out. 


3.Approximately draw on your template where the slits need to be and use a craft knife to cut them out.

TIP – When cutting out the slits on your printable, secure the template to your craft mat  with Washi Tape, to stop it slipping.


4.Cut two 1cm x 8cm pieces of coordinating Jingle Bells paper for the elf legs. From the top, measure down 1cm from the top of your strip and score a horizontal line on both strips. Use Dovecraft Perma Fix tape to adhere each leg to the bottom of the box, at the front.


5.Follow the template and cut out two elf shaped feet using complementing Jingle Bells paper designs. Stick each one to the legs on your box.

6.Die cut the smallest tag within the First Edition Gift Dies Set on to a piece of Jingle Bells paper. Thread through a length of Dovecraft Twine along with two, Dovecraft Christmas Basics Jingle Bells.


7.Tie your tag to the box and add a Simply Creative Glitter Sticker to the tag to add a sparkling finish! You could add Simply Creative gems to the boots to make it really glitzy!
