Snowman Christmas Exploding Box


A gentleman ordered this exploding box. He wanted the snowman inside so I had to make the box bigger than I usually do. The snowman lights up so I die cut a small circle into the base of the box to enable the recipient to access the switch.

I used a score board to make the box.  I matt and layered all the panels with red and green card. I printed the personalised sentiments and die cut them.  I have used the following dies to decorate the box. 

Nesting Ovals - Presscut
 Nesting scalloped circle - Xcut
Have a warm and cosy Christmas - Sue Wilson
Festive Wishes - Sue Wilson
Poinsettia - Tattered Lace 
Merry Christmas - Crafts Too
Deck The Halls - Tonic 
Season's Greetings - Elizabeth Craft Designs
Joy - Sue Wilson
Embossing folder - Sue Wilson

The snowman is from The Range
