Happy Holidays

Hi everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! Couldn’t ask for better weather here! This is my ‘other’ favorite time of year! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! It’s time for a new challenge over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #35 – June Anything Christmas Goes using the adorable Prickley Pear Stamps Snow Family stamp set! What a treat this is… a matchbox pop-up card! You know me and fun folds! This is the first one of these I’ve made and it was crazy fun!

I created the box from light teal cardstock. I went with a snowman theme and used snowman paper on the top of the box and gingham paper on the sides. I added a scalloped border punched from Papertrey Ink Tropical Teal cardstock on the left side of the top and embellished it with iridescent gemstones. I stamped the sentiments on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock, die cut them with a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangles STAX die and a Memory Box Stitched Oval Layers die, and added several snowflake sequins adorned with Nuvo Neptune Crystal Drops. The inside drawer features the Prickley Pear Stamps Snow Family stamped on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock, colored with alcohol markers and fussy cut, along with a couple more stamped sentiments. I added looped cord to the front of the drawer to assist in pulling it out. With this fold, you pull the drawer out from the front and push the drawer closed from the back.

Here’s a close-up of the inside drawer – so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it! ;)

And one more look with the drawer back inside the box… totally loving how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. I saw a box like this last year, but certainly not as cute I’m sure, a fabulous project, I would love to see the recipients face when they open it.
