Hello! I wanted to give Ashley's technique for making die cut shaped boxes a try.You can see her video over on Nicole's blog here. I decided to use the Snowglobe shaker die for my front and back pieces. I used one of the stamps in Oh Holy Night inside my shaker.
The Away in the Manger stamp was one of the main reasons I purchased
this stamp set - just love that song! Once I had the box put together, I
was looking it over and realized that it really looked like a cradle. Light bulb moment - my Away in the Manger stamp would be perfect for a
manger scene! So I pretty much dismantled everything and started over. I
impressed the end and box pieces with the Woodgrain impression plate
and used Kraft cardstock. Once assembled, I sliced really thin pieces
of Harvest Gold paper to make the straw for the manger.
I just love how it turned out! Thanks for stopping by!
