St. Nicholas Welcomes November

Hello and happy Tuesday!


I used the wonderful St. Nicholas papers and matching chipboard from Graphic 45 to make this explosion box.  Don't know about all of you but once November begins, Christmas comes all too soon.  Solid papers are bazzill; white paper from DCWV-glitter papers. 


Thanks to so many wonderful people who share so many of their projects on you tube, I added this second box in the middle. The box also flips over to one side so a note or picture can be added; magnets added so box doesn't flip unless you want it to.


This beautiful corner snowflake die is from Precious Marieke-received it just in time from 7 Kids to use in this project.  This third layer holds a tag that is backed with plain black paper for more pictures or journaling.  The little tabs peeking out are on the outside of the middle layer so the top page can be lifted up to reveal the inner pages.  Tags were cut from an Elizabeth Crafts die; tiny tabs from Spellbinders die.

 The to/from label is one of the matching stamps to this paper from Graphic 45.  The little pull on top is from Tim Holtz.


 This view shows the middle layer with the top flap turned over so the holly belly band and tag can be seen along with the back of the top page.  Holly die from Spellbinders.


The lid is partially off the middle box to show snow flake border and a place for a small surprise/present.  Snowflake border was from one of my many punches (Fiskers).


Oh, but there's already a surprise in the box-one of the delicate chipboards from Wycinancka-I hung it from a piece of thread tied to the pull.
