The first thing you will want to do is to punch the Christmas trees using the tree punch and green cardstock and then put the red and yellow Stickles dots on them. Set them aside to dry. Next, go to your favorite online craft store like CreateForLess and find some things on your wish list. Copy and paste them into a document and print them off on the Smooth Beige Cardstock. Keep in mind to size your photos so they will fit onto the 8 x 8 patterned paper once they are cut out. After cutting around each photo, round the corners with the corner rounder and ink the edges using the Fired Brick Distress Ink. Also, round the corners of the “Toyland” patterned paper from the Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium Paper Pad. Attach the pictures with the tape runner to the patterned paper making sure to tilt some of the photos to add attention to the layout.
Using your Cricut machine set the size to cut to 3 ¾” and cut the scroll from the Heritage cart. Ink the edges using the Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give it an old world paper look and adhere it to your layout. Write your letter to Santa with the black marker on the scroll and add the trees to the layout using the 3-d adhesive so they pop off the page.
You now have your letter to Santa finished and can help cut his work time down by showing him where he can find the tools on your Christmas wish list!
