Alter Somethin' Days - Dear Santa Pockets

Friday, October 21, 2011














It's time for Alter Somethin' Days!

{This feature will now take place once a month instead of bi-weekly so that I have time to make unique projects that I hope you will enjoy}

This month's project is a fun one that you can do with your kiddos. It involves leaving fun little notes for Santa. I call this one...

"Dear Santa" Pockets! 

Here are the supplies you will need:

1. White cardstock (Bazzill)
2. "Dear Santa" stamp (Michael's)
3. Mini kraft sleeves (Canvas Corp.)
4. Christmas paper (MME)
5. Scallop & Circle Punch (SU!)
6. Glue Dots
7. Ribbon or trim (RRR)
8. Mini pencils (Michael's)
9. Ink (SU!)

Now go grab the kiddos, lay out your supplies, and start having fun.


#1 - Cut your cardstock into 3" x 5" squares.

#2 - Stamp the top of each square then set it aside to let the ink dry.


#3 - Use your punches to cut out Christmas paper. Layer your paper on top of each mini kraft sleeve. I used Glue dots to adhere each piece.

#4 - Let your kiddos write their own personal messages to Santa on the cards. Insert the cards into each kraft sleeve.

#5 - Tie a piece of ribbon or trim to the bottom of each bag for more decor.

#6 - (optional) - you can add lace trim or a small doily to each sleeve and then place your paper on top.

#7 - For gift giving add a mini pencil inside each sleeve so that the recipient can write their own message.

You can leave these under the tree or on a plate of cookies for Santa.

Now here's my message to Santa...{LOL}


Have a happy weekend!

Oh I think you have been good enough for an iPad2. LOL Love this idea. Maybe I would get Christmas presents if I had one of these hanging around. I think I would need to make it 3ft by 6ft for my Santa to notice it though. LOL
