Santa's Flying Ferris Wheel!

 I've been so crazy busy lately, I almost forgot about the SVG Cuts Christmas Facebook Challenge! I'm always up for the challenge and the prizes are amazing! So here is my entry... Santa's Flying Ferris Wheel! 

I absolutely love how it turned out and it makes such a great tabletop decoration. It approximately stands 16 inches high!


Look at Rudolf with his nose so bright! Isn't he adorable ;)
 Click here so see where I got my inspiration! Thanks Brigit!


Here are some more close up shots! To make the sled sturdy, I cut out 10 layers for each side, and glued them back to back.


Snowflake centre... The Star button comes from Paper Play Studio! Those little flair buttons are so cute!


The Ferris wheel baskets are the perfect fit for tea lights! On the front of the basket I took the image of the snowflake and cut it out of the centre  Shhhhh, don't tell anyone... I then used parchment paper instead of velum, only because it was so late at night and I had no velum left. Hey it did the trick didn't it?! Only thing is I had to use hot glue with it.... cause nothing sticks to parchment paper as I found out, lol! 


And isn't Santa so CUTE? Just want to squeeze his cheeks :)


Here is the Flying Ferris Wheel at night. It looks awesome!!! The kids love it too, especially all lit up!


The paper stack I used comes from Recollections Naughty or Nice Paper stack Collection.

And here are the SVG Cuts kits I used:
Thanks SVG Cuts for such great files to work with!

Wish me luck.... again!
Happy Crafting :)
