Good afternoon, this is my THIRD post for today!! If you'd like to check out my gift-card-holder-tags from this morning HERE & HERE please do so. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Now for those who may have already visited me today, I said my DD 4½yo and I were going to make some Christmas projects, here's the first two. I stumbled across these gorgeous boxes and from there saw the tutorial link to here for the step-by-step instructions. (Check them out - they're gorgeous!!)
We didn't follow the instructions much... just interpreted the photos - I don't have many die cuts so lots of this was done by hand... and little hands too ;-)
We made the Santa first - all the eye bits are cut by hand, I really just used the photos for a guide on how it should look...
Here's Rudolf - I free handed the antlers & ears, used a smaller die to mark out his mouth. The boxes are 9cm x 5cm, I'll have to add some sort of handle - haven't worked out what yet though!
Am entering the two boxes into Die Cut Dreams Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes (this is my 3rd entry... sorry gals - the Chrissie mojo has arrived!!). And the Rudolf box also qualifies for Ooh La La's - Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer challenge.
