Christmas would not be Christmas without all the joyful gift giving!
And who’s to make all santa’s little gifts but the adorable little elfs hiding in santa’s workshop!
Fill up your jar with green jellybeans. All my jellybellies are from Candylicious!
Cut out a strip of the sparkly red cardstock to make the elf’s belt and a square outline of a yellow cardstock with a blade.
I hand cut these curved pointy shoes from the sparkly red cardstock.
First, cut out a oval. Then cut a straight line on the back and add a tiny triangle on the bottom right of the shoe (as shown above)
to make the heel of the shoe. Cut out a curve on the top to make the pointy ends of the shoe.
Once I have one side of the shoe,
I flip it wrongside down and trace-cut it from the red sparkly cardstock.
This will make an inverted piece for the other feet.
Time to add the feet! (Cut a longer piece than the above. I edited it later)
Bend the ends of the legs twice so that it folds up from the jar
and there’s a piece that could be glued securely beneath the jar.
It fits perfectly. I found that the feet looks best glued further apart
outside of the belt buckle frame than nearer to one another.
Cut out the hat pieces and glue them together.
I made an extra flat beneath the green piece to make the hat stand when glued to the mason jar cover.
Stick the hat on, and you’re DONE!
Merry Christmas everyone!
I hope you enjoyed stumbling upon this post!
