Day 19 of 20 Days of Christmas: Santa Suits

For Day 19, I made some Santa Suits to cover some boxes of candy that I had for stocking stuffers.
I started out with a box of whoppers and used white cardstock to make a pouch for the box of candy to fit into.

Now, I used the Cricut to make the cuts I would need for this project.  I used the Storybook Cart to cut the marquee cut twice in red and once in white, Wildcard to cut the buttons, George and Basic Shapes to cut a rectangle for the belt and Winter Frolic for the buckle.

I took the white marquee cut and cut the center out to fit it onto the red marquee for the front of the suit.
I then glued all of the details onto one of the red marquees for the front of the suit and two a second red marquee for the back of the suit.
I then used hot glue to attach these cuts to the front and back of the white cardstock pouch.

You can easily slide the box of candy out of these and still have the little santa suit pouch.
