Who really designs Santa's wrapping paper?

So who really designs Santa's wrapping paper. Well an Art Elf that's who.  I made this elf last year out of wire and model magic for the face.  Wrapped he green felt for clothing. He did have a hat but lost it on the way to the North Pole.  

My students (the Kinders) really love it. My elf has been traveling around some of the regular ed classes.  Today he is up to not good. Painting on my cabinets today.

There is so much more to this story.

My first grader studied Andy Warhol.  I show them how he did his blobbed ink drawings and also how he made shoe drawing.  I hady students draw their own shoe and also had them draw a shoe they wanted to wear when they were an adult.  We drew the shoes with black crayons. Then we used plastic sheets over the crayon drawing and colored them with markers.  Put wet paper on top of that and rubbed.  To get the print.  

Was really sure what to do with the background. 

The project needs a little work.
