Meslyn DT Challenge #9

Well Christmas is certainly on the way by the look of this month's challenge!! Please hop over and take part in this month's Meslyn Challenge which is Glitzy Glittered Christmas, and the bonus is a £10 voucher to spend for the winner - I think that is just a fabulous prize from Carolyn, and there's plenty of time to enter too!!

I cant wait to see what everyone comes up with and here is my DT contribution, a box.

Everything was in the monthly goodie bag with the exception of the ribbon and punch used to make the snowflaked and border, lots and lots and lots of glitter!

Lots of layering, ribbons and punching, and the holly die cuts added to the top make it a really handy gift box for little gifts. If anyone wants a tutorial for the box, let me know and I will make another and post it on the blog, but for now the measurements (before punching the border on the lid) are 5'' square, scored on all 4 sides at 1'' in from the side, thus making the box 3'' square when glued together.
The glitter card is nice and sturdy for this type of project ,and I added the gold snowflakes to fix the ribbon, although the rough texture of the glittered card will hold it in place well.

Here's a closeup, sorry the pics were taken the other evening, so lighting not the best, but I guess everyone gets the general idea..
