Catch the Bug's Christmas in July: Anything But a Card

Welcome to Day 3 of Catch the Bug's annual Christmas in July! It's Monday, Anything But a Card day, so we would like to see a tag or gift packaging. Again, our theme is "The Best Christmas Movies Ever" so here is your inspiration movie for today's challenge:

I've chosen this adorable old fashioned Santa to color; I've used pencils, then added some glitter to his fur trim and the star. I've used a Kraft gable box (I love these!) and added a band and some die cut stars. Simple but'll be fun to give a little goodie in this box! Here's a close-up:

Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Lawn Fawn Die (frame), Lil' Inker Designs Dies (stars, heart), Martha Stewart Glitter in "Sugar Cube" and "Candy Apple", Foam Tape

Please check out the rest of the DT's creations here, along with the challenge details here. Play along for the chance to win Bugaboo images from Jodie's online store.
