Welcome to the Eleventh day of Christmas!
For today I made a… candy cane hugger? Idk what these are called but it is a way to dress up a candy cane to hang on your tree or give to kids, well adults would like them too.  If I was giving these to kids I would prolly just stamp a face to make it easier to mass produce.
To make this guy I used the “Christmas Wreath Monkey” from Kadoodle Bug Designs

I did not use the base in the file, or the wreath. I pieced the legs, ears, head, and hat together how I wanted and then welded them together in my Silhouette Software. I did not weld the arms to this. I then cut the arms the “new base” and the pieces out. after putting the body together I had to attach the arms, they are folded about 1/8 -1/4” to attach to the back of the piece. I used a glue dot to hold the candy cane to the monkey’s belly, then used mini glue dots or you can cut your glue dots to attach the hands to the candy cane.

I actually really like these and think these could be a lot of fun to hang around the tree to make a game for kids. I don’t have kids and my almost 8 month old puppy thinks they look tasty paper in all…


Head on over to the Kadoodle Bug Designs fan page and like and comment on this photo for a chance to win a pattern of your choice.

As far as the give away here leave a comment every day for the 12 days of Christmas with a number 1-12
The prizes include twine bundles,  a stamp set, ink pads, paper pads, 5 cricut lite cartridges they have been packaged up inside brown paper bags with numbers (1-12) stapled to the top. I have no idea what is in each bag. If you are the winner for that particular day the number you comment will be which bag you win. I hope that makes sense.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you come back tomorrow for another chance at winning and more projects.
