Fun Little Box to Make!





I originally made a similar box to this design for the SCS Dirty Dozen gallery in August (I think?) - I changed up the design a little for this box. It's easy to make with a 12x12 sheet of cardstock using the instructions on my template. If you click on the template I *think* it will come up on a larger screen so it's easier to view the measurements!

-

I used Wild Wasabi textured cardstock for the base of my box, combined with some cuttlebugged white cardstock and a hint of real red for a really festive feel. The images are from Festive Favorites (SU!). I colored the trees with Prisma Pencils and blending stumps from My Favorite Things and blended with baby oil.

***WEEKLY CHALLENGE AND BLOG CANDY*****

I want to see what everyone can design using this pattern! Send me a link to your project either on your blog or in your SCS gallery - one lucky random winner will receive a goodie bag from me - I haven't decided what it will be yet, but trust me it'll be nice!!
