Christmas fun at Crafting with Dragonflies

This fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies our theme is Christmas. I made an exploding box with a surprise lantern inside.


I added a treeline border to all the sides of the lid; it's a die from Memory Box. The tree inside was created with a die that came with an issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft.


I glued the battery-operated light to the box, so I cut a little hole on the bottom  to make it easy to turn on/off.


Inspiration/Challenges:
Dies R Us Challenge: Christmas + Dies
Sassy Studio: Anything But a Card
Try It On Tuesday: Bags & Boxes


Thank you for visiting, and hope you'll join us at Crafting with Dragonflies,
