And then I remembered my Sizzix Bigz XL Shaker Box Die (Item # 655134), that hasn’t seen the light of day for at least two years!!! OMG, it was perfect!
I used it to cut the red striped card from Payper Box I got a few weeks ago which just spelt Christmas to me! Not wishing to waste any scraps, I stuck the piece that came from the window in the bottom of the box as a background to the sweets.
…… but it had to be flat, so I decided to punch some red scallop edged hearts and then add a Christmas message using a white gel pen, sorted!
I used Marc’s band idea from his Christmas cards to make one for the boxes to stop them flapping open, using a strip of contrasting red card …… and creasing it using my box maker board.
I then made the sentiment decoration using my Stampin’ Up scalloped punch, scraps of card and gold, white and silver Christmas circles from Craftwork Cards http://www.craftworkcards.co.uk/products/1585/in-circles-christmas-gold-silver.html
The felt holly leaves and berries were from this years Hobbycraft Christmas collection but I just couldn’t find them on the website to make a link! I think a tub of 12 cost about £2.99/3.00.
