DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW...

Hi, everyone!  Back again and I think I have a project to share that you will all like.   I think it's adorable and I don't like to brag about my own projects.  I was so excited about this one, I could hardly wait for the glue to dry.  So, tell me what you think:


It's a Christmas card and sleigh candy box gift set.  Here I'm trying to give you a closer-up of the sleigh box:


I got the template for the sleigh from a 5-year old issue of a "Paper Crafts" Holiday Magazine.  I've been meaning to use it since the time I bought the magazine but I always forgot about it during the Christmas seasons.  Well, not this time...

I, again, used the Christmas Noel cart to cut the reindeer (I think I've got a thing for those reindeer -- lol!) and used puffy paint for the snow.  As soon as I scan the template of the sleigh, I'll post it for you -- would you like that?!!!

I'm not good at entering challenges, but maybe I'll try to find one to tuck this one into!  Yea, I like it that much!!!

Well, off to get the DH some dinner and then back to the craft table!!!

P.S.  I forgot to mention earlier, the letters on the card "Merry Christmas" were cut from Plantin Storybook.

I'll be seeing you!

This is just beautiful! I love it! The detail is so neat and it is very elegant. I like that Paper Crafts magazine too and have a ton of old ones that I use in my classroom. Too bad my second graders couldn't make a project like this! :) Great job as always and you have put me in the Christmas Spirit!
