Firstly, I cut round the template to make each section from turquoise card. I then scored each part and built them up to make the case, box and drawer. I also rounded the corners of the outer case.
Next, I used the template to cut three sections of red card; the front and back panels and spine. I then chose my patterned paper. Cutting them just smaller then the red template, I used a Christmas toys paper which combined the red and turquoise theme.
Before adding the outer panels, I chose a red spotty ribbon and attached this round the outer panel with spare at the ends to tie the box together. I then attached the panels.
To finish the outer case, I added a raised decoupaged Christmas bear with a Santa sack, to keep in with the presents theme. I also used an 'It's Christmas!' sentiment tag backed with turquoise card and embellished with red ribbon which I raised with sticky pads.
For the inside, I used acetate to make the window to view a present through and added peel off candy canes to the boarder. To the drawer I added a red spotty ribbon loop tab to make the drawer easier to pull out.
I would like to enter this project into the following challenges: -
