Christmas in a box

I hope you've wrapped up all your presents and are sitting enjoying a cold beverage just waiting for Santa to arrive! It's super hot outside here in Central Queensland, so we're all indoors watching Christmas movies in the air-con - pets included.

I'm indulging in some crafting and made a pop-up-box card using a template from My Scrap Chick and a gorgeous digi image from Some Odd Girl.  I coloured the image with my copics and glossed up her eyes and lightbulbs.

I accented the box with patterned paper and flocking, some tiny tinsel and holly.


I found some little plastic snowflakes and added them to the box with gems.


Here's a top view.  There are three little cardstock "bridges" that you can decorate and add images too to fill the box.  The template comes with the box pattern, the insert paper patterns, and the three bridges.  All with complete instructions.
