Mixed Media Mojo - Christmas In July/Twist Santa

It's time for the latest Mixed Media Mojo Challenge, the theme is Christmas In July and the twist is Santa.

For my DT project I've made a Christmas cracker, I made the Santa to decorate the cracker but I decided he was to big and didn't look right. I won't give details of how I made him as I might use him on something else.

I coloured the background with red, green and white acrylic paint, then I used a pitt pen to colour an Impression Obsession stamp and stamped the background.

I stamped some snowflakes and some gold stars.

I used a Creative Expressions cracker template to make the cracker.

This photo shows the gold stars.

This is the finished cracker. The holly was made using a Sizzix  Holly Branch die.

  2. Terrific ideas for your cracker and a lovelynSanta

  3. Great fun Hazel! I love the craker but I think Santa steals the show LOL :D x

  4. Creating your own cracker, that would be such great fun.
    Curious as to how you made that wonderful Santa.

  5. That's so fantastic - love the multilayered paper, and it looks so cool as a cracker.
