How stinkin cute is this???

The Box is really easy to create–just a box bottom and a wrap around it.  I stapled some ribbon at the bottom of the box to make it easy to pull open!

The Card is actually an easel on top, and the little sentiment, which is popped up, holds the santa up, making a sweet little treat to decorate your desk!
