NOT a Card

Lou set the weekly challenge on Dottie's World this week. She said:

"It's my week this week and I fancied a change so here's the challenge;
Make something using a Charmed download but IT CAN'T BE A CARD!"
Ok, thinking cap on. Do I do a LO? No, I fancy doing something else. So, my aim was a one layer exploding box to use as a gift box. I got the layer cut and folded then decided that I didn't want to do that so I cut some more card and made a proper box.
And here it is.

I had a pre-coloured Robin Dottie (available from Charmed) that I'd printed out earlier onto photo paper, so used that. I added green glitter glue to the leaves and diamond Stickles to her tummy. I put red ribbon round the edge and secured it with a red dotty brad. Notches I cut in the side were edged with cinammon Stickles.

I'm aiming to use this (if I make more) as alternative Christmas crackers or I may just use this as a traditional gift box.

Thanks for looking.
Love and hugs

LOVE IT! Hope you do manage to get more done - they'll look stunning all together as alternative Christmas crackers - or as gift boxes!
