Secret Santa Sleigh #DCWV

Santa is coming!!!  I made this for the DCWV & May Arts Blog Hop. The sleigh is a pattern by SVG Attic cut with the Cricut Explore.  The paper is DCWV's The Christmas Mercury Glass Stack.  I used 2 sheets of the red, 1 red and it was easy to assemble.  All ribbon used by May Arts and are linked to their retail store and they are currently offering free shipping.  I used the green 3/4" Mini Pom Pom ribbon to decorate the edge of the sleigh.  I then heat embossed the sentiment from Hollydays stamp set by Pink and Main and used pop dots to adhere.  This is the perfect gift for a Secret Santa.

Santa's Sack:
I removed the drawstring from the muslin bag and used fabric glue to adhered the 3/4" Noel canvas ribbon to the inside of the bag.  I then layered the green 3/4" Velvet ribbon on top of the red  5/8" Sheer Grosgrain Stitched ribbon.  I used a gold star straight pin to close and added the jewelry charm, "Christ is the Reason for the Season".  Additionally, I cut strips out of gold tissue paper and used it a filler.

Now to reveal Santa's secret.  The bottom of the sleigh has a secret compartment.  Gasp! The chassis is a box! Room for more treats!  Let's load it up this bad boy because I've been nice all year long!
