A Sleigh Ride

Happy Sunday Afternoon Y'all!!!

I have another box like I promised. This one I had the lid but no bottom so I worked on this one last night. This was a little tougher as I wasn't crazy about the words be jumbled, but I like the box now. I think it would be cute if the sleigh was filled with some peppermint candy canes and then a gift in the box below. Maybe something for the whole family.

Start with the soap box from Honeybee Tea SVG Kit and sponge some white ink lightly onto the bottom edges. This was to look a bit like snow. Then use the Sleigh from Santa's Visit SVG Kit and size the sleigh way down. I sized it down to W 6.772 H 2.720. This is the size for the sleigh box and if you bring the whole thing onto the mat and size it down all at once your sleigh box will be this size when you click on it. I used My Minds Eye Sleigh Bells Ring Collection in this box design. I just love the "feel" of this paper collection. I used the 6x6 pad of this collection to add the inside accents. The accents for the outside of the sleigh were embossed with Tim Holtz Snow Pattern Emboss folder. I made a loop of twine and poked a hole in front for a small brad. I hot glued the twine into place, then I took out the white on the twine on another piece and tied the bells onto the twine. I hot glued the thread with the bells to the back and then a bow on top.
  I used white ferny greens sized down from 3d Wintergreens SVG Kit.  Parts of the ferny greens are glued down then the sleigh is hot glued in place.The Holy is from Shaped Christmas Cards SVG Kit of course sized down. The gemstones are from Michael's. I just loved how they looked in the store and thought I could do a lot with these. I think they fit right in.
The Berries are from Christmas Open House SVG Kit, again sized down. I added Star Dust Stickles to the berries on the twig for a little sparkle. I trimmed off some of the stick on the twig as I didn't want it sticking out that far. That is totally a matter of taste.
 I have said this before but I keep a box of things like this I have cut for other projects and they didn't work out or I didn't need them so sizes are not always available to me again, I apologize for this.  I will go to this box often when I only need a few things but don't want to cut just a small amount. This keeps my creativity flowing to not have to stop like that. I think I know what I will do with this box. Even as I look at the box now my mind is thinking of different things to do to change the whole look. Even a lantern is coming to mind.. Oh silly brain! anyhoo thanks so much for stopping by and reading my  blog. When I was a kid Sunday dinners were a big deal so go enjoy your Sunday and break bread with your family! Happy Craftin' Y'all! Blessings Sharalyn
