Up On The Rooftop - A Mini Tutorial

Hello friends!
A cute little tutorial to share with you today!
I created this little chimney with a vintage Santa piece and thought I would show you how it's done.

I first started with a 7 inch square of white cardstock.

I then used a Tim Holtz Brick embossing folder to emboss the entire piece.

Then I pulled out my Festive Berries, Fired Brick
and Walnut Stain Distress Inks. Layering my colors to create a vintage look.

I then used a score board to score your basic box fold lines.

Then I folded it and glued it together.

Next, I wanted a Icicle style border around the top of the chimney so I used this Fiskars Jester Border punch and cut a strip of white cardstock.

Then adhered it to my chimney. To finish it off, I added a mix of White Gold and Snowflake glitter to make it resemble snow.

Add a little Santa and that's it! Around this part of the country it's pretty easy to find these little mini flocked vintage Santas. I am so addicted to them!
Another great use for this besides a decoration is a place setting. Like in the photo below, take a sticker or mini label and write in your name and adhere to the front of the chimney.

This is how he is displayed in our Sugar Kissed Display. Right in front!

Have a lovely day, Lindsey
