MMM week 26

This weeks challenge over at Make My Monday is continuing with the Christmas theme and is to make a
                      DECORATED BOX (IN A CHRISTMAS STYLE)
I don't make many boxes except for the odd exploding box for special occasions eg weddings and christenings but I have made this box design once before with fairies on it and thought I'd try a Christmas one:)
I've used red card for the base of the box and the lid and some card from Bo Bunny for the inside. I stamped over the red card with a stamp from SU Pines and Poinsettias and added white glitter to the pine cones.  



 I punched out a bird and branch from an SU punch twice and stuck the 2 birds together over the branch and used silicone glue to attach it to the base and added a couple of rose buds to cover the glue.
The lid is stamped with the poinsettia design from the same set and I punched out some holly leaves from more Bo bunny card and added berries and attached them to the front. I used a small round punch to create finger holes to allow for ease of opening.


You can just glimpse some stamping under the finger hole and that is a Christmas tree in a pot stamped on all 3 sides but I forgot to photograph it!!

Check out the fabulous inspiration that the design team have created and thank you for visiting me and hopefully leaving a comment so that I can visit you:)
