Joyful Jetting Santa's Nuts and Bolts

Good Morning Everyone....

Hope your week is off to a great start!  I wanted to share the details of the Joyful Jetting Santa project.  I hope this video helps answer questions on how it was made.  It truly was a fun project to make and I hope you give it a try and send me your pictures when it's done.  I think it would be fun to post them here on my blog for all to see.  So REV up your engines and let's get started....

Remember, if you don't have the dies to cut the wings or the circle shapes, just freehand it onto some thicker cardstock and use that as a template to cut out....

Thank you all for such amazing comments!  I appreciate it so much!

Have an awesome day!

  1. This is great!! Thanks for sharing the video! I'm catching up on all you've done since Turkey Day.... you've been a busy guy. I've been gone on vacation last week and I feel like I've missed EVERYthing....LOL.

  2. I've been out of touch for weeks now, only popping in and out to see what amazing thing you have created... AND I am Never let down! Awesome.... I'm going to have to realy make time to try and make this.... Of corse, All I have of the last thing I said I wanted to make is turkey legs and accordian folded tail feathers laying on the kitchen table..... :)

  3. I'm so impressed that you took time before work to show us how to make this cool jet.We have house guests the week between Christmas and New Yer's. I'm going to put together all the ingredients in gift boxes under the tree. Then I'm really looking forward to us sitting down and making the jet together.I just have to put the star on my Archiver's tree - it is so cool.
    Thanks a bunch,
