I already posted my this guy standing behind a tin gift holder here, but thought you might like to see what he can do on his own. This is a little Christmas elf on a spool, made from a collage sheet image colored with Copic markers (my new favorite toy!) Because of the serendipitous way his arms are posed, he can hold a variety of Christmas cheer.

Here he is with a countdown to Christmas card. The card has a chalkboard surface (cut from a chalkboard atc blank), so you can write in the number with chalk each day.

Need some cute placecards for your Christmas table?

Or how about a unique way to present a gift card?

Is there anything this guy can't do? I would only like him better if he could clean up after the holidays. Cheesy
