Feeling Sketchy Blog Hop

Welcome to the Feeling Sketchy Design Team Christmas blog hop!

Hopefully you've found your way here from Debi's blog,

But if you've only started here then you might want to start back at Feeling Sketchy .

 I'm so excited to share my cute Christmas decorations and box I have made using this months sponsor Image 'Santa with Star'

Here are some instruction on how to make these cute little Christmas decorations to hang on your tree.
First you will need to print out the Digi Stamp . I have put two images per 10.5x15cm card . I think six decorations makes a lovely gift box amount. 

Next you will want to colour the images using your chosen medium. I love Pro Markers so I have coloured them with these. If you aren't as time poor as I am you might want to print some extras and fussy cut the star and hands, adding some dimensionals to pop it out.

Once you have your images all coloured up just the way you like them, cut them out. I have left the beard and the hat tail on but you could trim these off and double side the decoration like baubles. Next is to add ribbon to hang them. Simply staple ribbon in the position where you would like it. 

These would make a great little gift to give to work friends or for that decoration swap you might be in. Of course you need a box to present them in so I've made one of those to.

Here are the measurement and instructions you will need. for a box that fits six deco's.

Take printed double sided card stock measuring 13 x 11.3cm
score @ 2cm and 11cm on the long side then 2cm and 9.3 cm on the short side. This will leave you with 2cm squares in the corners. Snip on side of this square to the score line only and place adhesive in each square, taking note of which pattern you would like on the outside of your box. Fold all score line then adhere corners in place so side stand up.
Next take window sheet or acetate and cut a strip 9cm x 21cm.
score @ 2, 9.5, 11.5 and 19 cm and fold. Using strong stick strip, adhere 2cm ends together.

Place Christmas decoration in box and slide acetate lid over. Tie a nice ribbon around box and you are done.

I hope you like my Christmas project I have made for you and don't forget 
the fun doesn't stop here, the next blog to hop to is Sharyn's.

I really love this idea. It's so simple and yet people still go out and buy useless baubles that break and are no fun... this is FUN! The box and gift idea is great too. I may get a tree this year :)
