Christmas Box by SUE CREASE

I'm up on The Mad Scrapper Blog today with this Christmas surprise treat box. These are so easy to make and lots of fun for the recipient. You can make it double lined but this time I chose not to as I wanted to add some sweet treats to the centre.
I started with a sheet of Candyfloss scoring at 4 and 8 turned the card and again scored at 4 and 8. I burnished all score lines and then removed the outside squares to give the the design as below. You can see I have made a 1 inch deep box for the centre but this is a 31/2 to allow the flaps to come up.
Then I took a paper from the Boho Christmas kit and added it the outside flaps. I chose the Falalala one as I thought it to be fun. I took images from the journal paper along with stickers to add on top. I also made a lid for the box and put paper inside too. All these additional layers will give the box strength. 
To the inside flaps I first cut up Cherry Splash and used deckle edge scissors to give a more playful look and on top of that I used more images from the journal page. You can see I have lined the inside of the shallow box and you also get a glimpse of the lid too.
I added some glitter ribbon to the edges of the lid (again strength) There are so many lovely papers and stickers in this kit it's hard to choose!
Here you can see I have added a little bag of chocolate coins you could add what ever is age appropriate for the recipient. 
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you get chance to make one of these as they are lots of fun. Janine has lots of different papers and kits you could use so pop over to The Mad Scrapper  and find one that suits you.
