Winter Words and Santa's Key!

Welcome to JustRite Winter Words Wednesday! This set is sure to get much use in the coming months! Winter Words is a versatile Clear Set featuring 27 stamps! Using stamps from this set, I was able to cross off another gift on the holiday list! A couple years ago, I made a box with a Santa key for our grandson; that post is HERE. I wanted to create something similar for our granddaughter, so that's what I have for you today!

Lets begin with the key and tag! I googled Santa Key sayings and there were many to choose from! I adapted this shorter version and hand printed the body of wording, then added two of Winter Words closing sentiments! I cut the tag first with my Spellbinders Labels Sixteen Die #6, this enabled me see the amount of space to get the saying written!

The special key and tag needs a place to be stored during the year, right? When I was at Michaels recently they had the coolest wooden containers in one of their dollar bins, various shapes with the body of the container made of a flexible balsa wood that wraps around whatever end shape it is made with! I purchased a round version!

I covered the container with papers from Graphic45 Christmas Emporium! This 8 x 8 paper pad is chocked full of beautiful double sided pages! The opening to this holder is on the length side with the lid able to be pulled up with the tiny knob. I sanded all edges before adding the Prima Wave Trim!

Here is a closer look at the container shape, paper and trim! LOVE this trim from The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store, perfect with the paper.

A closer look at the poem! I hope you have enjoyed this special thrifty keepsake gift for our granddaughter! You'll be seeing Winter Words on many more creations, it's just one of those perfect sets packed with unlimited possibilities!
