Sleigh exploding box


I have made the sleigh using 300gsm white card then added red and gold mirror card to decorate.

I adapted my exploding box dimensions so the box would house the sleigh. I printed personalised sentiments and die cut sentiments using Sue Wilson dies. I cut the shapes for the sentiments with dies from a Spellbinders nesting set. I added chocolates to the sleigh.

I added another Sue Wilson sentiment onto the lid of the box. Inside the lid I have created a pocket to hold a tag so a handwritten message can be added.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:

  1. What a clever adaption of an Exploding Box Beckie. I like that you used the inside of the lid to add a pocket and a tag. The contents of the sleigh look nice too - a lovely surprise for the recipient. Thank you for entering the Anything Goes Challenge at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.
