Have a Cracker of a Christmas

Hi everyone,

Recently while I was going through my blog reader, checking out the blog posts of people that I follow I came across a fun Christmas Cracker Shaped Box which I just had to try out. Here is my version of the box.

If you would like to create one too, you will find the tutorial that Kim Fee created on here blog here.

To decorate my box I used a sentiment stamp I had in my stash which I thought suited this style of box perfectly. I also used the holly leaves and sprigs from Elizabeth Craft Designs Candles die set.

Here is another view of my box when it is closed. I added another layer of green cardstock under the open part of the designer paper, so that the reverse of the designer paper couldn't be seen.

Here you can see the box when one of the sides of the box is removed.

And finally both sides of the box are removed to reveal the box ( mine is empty in the photo above,  but you could put a number of different things inside the box including a gift card.
