Santa's Pants Box
This was inspired by a box seen on Pinterest. Since I'm always in a hurry when I decide to do a project, I knew it would take me too long to make a cut. file in Design Studio so I used an empty box for the base.
An empty saltine cracker box was my starting point.
I measured one half of the box and made a mark 5" from the bottom fold. This is my cut line and I'll get two finished boxes from each saltine box.
I opened the side seam on the box and flattened it out. This makes it easier to cut the bib portion on the pants.
You can see where I drew the black lines as the outline for the bib cutout.
Then I used a ruler to make a straight cutting line across the width of the box and cut on the line.
To finish the box, I covered it with red paper, cut a 3/4" strip of black for the belt and punched out a white square for the buckle. The only black brads I had were too small so I colored some large brass ones with a black Sharpie Marker and attached the straps to the front and back of the box.
