Have you all had a fabulous week. Sorry not been about much this week, feeling decidedly under the weather. Not sure if it has been a bug, the weather or me just getting old LOL!
Anyways, on to today's post.
It's the start of a new challenge over at Polkadoodles and this fortnights challenge theme is More than One Fold.
I have been wanting to have a go at one of these exploding boxes for a long time. So thought I would give it a try.
I have used the fabulous Picknix 3 - Nordic Winter collection for all the papers and embellishments.
The poinsettia on top is one leaf - that I then print and cut 4 at 3", 4 at 2" and 3 at 1", then layered and shaped. I think I may have gone a bit over the top with the glitter though :-)
Here's the inside. Layering up some embellishments. I love the stars.
For the centre I cut and layered a poinsettia wreath and then using a candle embellishment off the CD I formed a 3d candle and added some glitter to that too.
I did use some of the snowflakes off the collection that i cut using my Cameo and some shiny paper, just to add a little extra to the inside papers. Along with some square sentiments from the Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun Collection.
Not sure if this really came out as I expected and I think I would maybe do things a little different if I make another one. Think I lost the plot somewhere LOL!
Anyways, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. If you get time to craft and make something with more than one fold - why not go along and enter the challenge at Polkadoodles. You have until Noon, GMT 14th Aug to enter.
