On the 4th Day of Christmas

Today we are showing you how to make a cute container for the Letters to Santa that the children write each year.  What a great way to keep and preserve these fun letters.  And imagine how fun it will be to open these 5 or 10 years from now.  

If you have trouble viewing this video you can go directly to the You Tube link below.

We have a number of files that go with this tutorial to give to you.
The first file is the template used to cut out the pieces for the top and bottom of your container.  Just insert the image into a Word document as you would any other digi stamp that you use.  It should insert at the correct size for printing.  Print it on the wrong side of your patterned paper and cut out.  Be sure to print and cut two.
The second file is the file used for the letters to put in the container.  Follow the link to get the Word document for printing.  I forgot to mention it in the video, but these will print on a 5 3/4 x 9 inch piece of paper.

We are also giving you the tag we used on our project.

And lastly we are offering the Flourish .svg file used to cut the flourishes used on our project.  This file actually contains two versions of flourishes.  It can be used with Make the Cut software or any other software that allows you to import .svg files for cutting.  (We would love to hear how many of our Shelly's Images friends are using .svg files.  Please leave us a little note if you would be interested in more .svg files in the future.)
