Santa's Flying Ferris Wheel | Interactive Christmas Decoration | SVGCuts Challenge Entry


 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!

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 center... 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 center Shhhhh, don't tell anyone... I then used parchment paper instead of vellum, only because it was so late at night and I had no velum left. Hey, it did the trick didn't it?! The only thing is I had to use hot glue with it.... cause nothing sticks to the parchment paper as I found out, lol!

The paper stack I used comes from Recollections Naughty or Nice Paper stack Collection. The files were all cut out using the Silhouette Cameo.

And here are the SVG Cuts kits I used:

Thanks, SVGCuts for such great files to work with!

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