I colored my elf with Copic markers.  My designer paper came from my sister Darsie's craft room.  I used the snowflake edge punch by EKSuccess.  Next I added cream seam binding and soft orange rick rack.  Then I put my twine in the snowflake buttons (Look really hard, it is there).  My finishing touch are the soft orange pearls.
