Good morning bloggers, I hope you all had a lovely weekend and got all your Christmas shopping done. I’ve done most of mine on the internet this year, I’m getting grumpier by the year …I used to really enjoy it but I just can’t face the shops now when they’re busy and I always seem to end up wanting to commit a murder!
Onto todays post, if some of you have seen this before I apologise but I couldn’t resist putting it on again for our new visitors
There is a tutorial that Kathy kindly put together for us for making one of these boxes on our website. It’s also in the labels down the right hand side of this page under ‘exploding box’
They are a bit time consuming but the end result is just so impressive that if you have the time and patience it’s definitely worth having a go
Here's the outside, all closed up in a pretty package
…and when you slide off the top, voila! …a little holiday scene and floating snowflakes pop out at you
The little die cut pine trees are decorated with gold tinsel and red pearls
The poinsettias are cut from vellum and sponged with a bit of color before assembling
The snowflakes are frosted with German glass glitter and attached to thin strips of acetate
Wouldn’t this be perfect to send to a very special person this Christmas!
Thanks for looking, see you tomorrow
