    Love the projects … but could I please suggest that if you are going to assemble something, please angle the camera to allow us to see your work as you progress. Just watching you over the table doesn’t help us to see the creative process … Just a suggestion.

      Thanks, Becky! We appreciate your feedback and will definitely take it into consideration for future creative process videos. This video was not intended to be a creative process video or a tutorial. We wanted to share some projects and announce that the dies were in stock this week. We did assemble a couple of projects so people could see that they’re quick to assemble. We have tutorial-based videos on our YouTube channel, but will use overhead video perspective when creating in the future.

    Thanks for showing us some quick ideas. Although we couldn’t see the actual assembly of the reindeer it was nice to have it put together in real time to give a better idea as to how quick the pot bellies really go together. Love the tags, too.

    The Santa and Reindeer Potbellies Treat Holders were such a success at Christmas time with my granddaughters and friends that I decided to modify the Santa Potbellies into an Easter Bunny Treat Holder. I took the idea from a blog called, “Sleepy in Seattle,” on converting a Sizzix snowman die into a bunny treat holder. I just removed the hat, arms and feet of the Santa Potbellies, decorated the face with bunny faces, made the ears and feet out of a small oval die. I also devised an opening in the back of the Santa/Reindeer/Bunny Potbellies for easy removal of the treats inside without destroying the treat holder. I had made the treat holders into Christmas ornaments so after the treats were devoured, the girls hung the Santa and Reindeer Potbellies on the tree. FYI — after looking at the Huggables: Bunny & Chick Mini Stamp Set & Die, you might be able to place the head of the bunny on the Santa Potbellies. I could not find the measurements for the die to see if that would work. I have photos of my Easter Bunny treat holders but I can’t post on this blog. I just wanted to let crafters know how versatile the Potbellies Treat Holders are for many occasions. And, if I had had the Penguin Potbellies that might I have worked better.
