Santa Chimney Candy Holder/ Cutting Up With Class Fireplace Challenge/ Design Team Project

It is Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at Cutting up with Class.  I hope you will join us this week.  The challenge is to use this great fireplace cut that you can pick up over on the site.  Be sure to stop by and check out all of the projects by the design team and pick up the file to enter your own project here: http://www.cuttinupwithclass.blogspot.com/
Remember that you need to create a new project for this challenge and link it back to CUWC. :)

For my project, I wanted to make a candy bar slider with the Santa coming out of the chimney.  I covered my candy bar in red paper and used white paint to add a crick effect.  I then hand cut a little piece to look like snow and used puffy paint on it to get a snowy effect for the top.  The fireplace cut for this week at CUWC was cut and painted with the same bricks for the bottom of the candy bar holder.  I then added some yellow paper, mini lights and small pieces of skewers cut to look like wood.  The Santa cut is from Lettering Delights Santa Express set and was glued to the back of the wrapper.
 Here is a pic where you can see how the candy bar comes out of the package.

I am also entering this into the following challenge:
