 Hello everyone,

Christmas # 17 is up and a should have been simple, but nothing in my life is simple..

I was at my son's doing the cleaning and saw this box on top of his dresser and had an idea..

I didn't ask for permission to take it, it was an old box!!'
and should have /could have been thrown out.

So I took it and cut the side flap off the lid and the bottom flaps off.

made the panels for the center..

cursed a bit.,,but got it done.

die cut snow men and gave then colourful hats with matching scarves.

even tittervated theirs scarves with polka dots and some shading..

I needed  a moon so punched one in yellow..

and die cut my beautiful Deer and added their white detail bits.

Then started gluing down on all the flaps

the Deer got some gems eyes..

the snowman was a bit too big to be back there, should have swapped the
deer and snowman around....too late stuck down hard.

one side..with all the sparkly stars.

Other side..

and done..

Thank you so much for stopping by.
I'll see you tomorrow..

You have made an amazing job of transforming your 'stolen' box Chrissy, love all your die cuts -especially the sweet little deer.
I thought you were going to say that your son had been saving the box for something and wanted it back !!! :D

Good for you using those boxes that would otherwise be in the trash, and such a fantastic scene, love the snowmen and how you have the deer on the front looking up at the stars :) Pretty forest of trees too!
