Santa's Kitties

At Christmas time I like to make little favor boxes to give as gifts to my coworkers. I have a few friends that LOVE their cats, so I thought it would be cute to make a cat shaped box for a few of them.

Using the Cat Bag file from Studio Ilustrado and my Cameo I cut out the cat in different colors. Then using Silhouette Double- sided sheets adhered to cardstock I cut out all the pieces that would be furry. Peeling off the backing and adding  some Martha Stewart Flocking powder in Swan and Pewter to make the soft fur.

Since my cats are suppose to be Christmas Kitties, they needed some Christmas bling. I cut out some of the Christmas Photo Props from Silhouette.

For the first kitty  I cut out the Santa hat, added some Wink of Stella to the brim, a pompom and embossed the hat with the corner of the Peachy Keen Cat Background stamp in white. What kitty doesn't have a bell, so I threaded a tiny jingle bell onto some twine and tied it around my kitty.

For the second one I choose the Elf Hat, I inked around the edges and added some Wink of Stella to the bell then cut out the scarf. I tucked a mouse into his hat that I stamped and fussy cut out from the same Peachy Keen Cat Background stamp.

I wanted to add some tissue paper inside of my cat boxes so I stamped the Cat Background stamp onto some white tissue paper and made my own designer tissue. Love, love how it turned out!

I think they will love getting these Christmas Kitties and I had so much fun making them.

I will be entering this into the Silhouette Challenge #20 Anything Goes over at Silhouette Challenges.
