And more!

Today I have the last of the snowmen for you
as tomorrow we move to papers from My Minds Eye.
The first card is a box card.

I have used the Martha Stewart Winter paper pad (kit),
Spellbinder Nestabilities Labels 14 and 2010 Snowflake pendant. 
I have finished with a bit of bling from Zva create,
some fine ribbon from my stash and
Distress stain Broken china.

The box card is easy to make. 
First cut your paper to A5 landscape and score down the centre as if folding to make a C6 card.
Open the card back up and cut 1 cm from the left hand side. 
Then score 1cm in on the left then again 1 cm to the right of the centre fold already made,
then again 1 cm in from the right hand side of the card.
Once folded this should make the box shape.
Does it make sense?
I have then used my Spellbinder die to make the hole, creating a smaller message with  Paula Pascual Large Christmas sentiment stamps. 
Finally the hanging snowflakes have been made sandwiching ribbon between two identical snowflakes and attaching to the inside of the card.

Top tip:  Do all the decorating before finally gluing the box together as it gets a bit fiddly the other way around.
Also double sided card stock is a must for this project.

Finally again from the Martha Stewart kit....

 Also in the MS kit there was some acetate stickers and bubble stickers and I thought what a great way to decorate glass or even an acetate card. 
I opted for a wee votive adding paper from the above range and a wee bit of gingham ribbon too. 
The tag I made up myself using the bubble stickers also in the kit papers and stickers plus
Martha Stewart edge punch Traditional scallop.
A good project for kids to make for their teachers......
although I've heard it on the grapevine that teachers prefer a bottle of good wine to candles,
I wonder why?!

So that's all for me again today, happy crafting!
