Christmas Card Caddy

I saw this idea a couple of years ago in Holiday Cards and More (Vol.3) and wanted to try it.  This year I was able to find the caddy at Hobby Lobby and finish it off with some of the Holiday paper I had left over from my other Christmas crafts. (see original post December 6,2009)

I began by sanding and then painting the inside of the caddy with two coats of Santa Red paint.  After tracing each section with a pencil, I cut out my patterned paper.  I assembled the front section complete with label and Pointsettia before attaching the panel.  I brushed a thin layer of Modge Podge onto the wood and then placed my paper.  I chose the 'Holiday Wishes' sentiment instead of simply stamping 'cards' on the front.
