Christmas Come Early

 Happy Sunday Morning!

It's time for a new Crafting When we Can Challenge and the theme is Christmas come early, 
we had images from Inky Impressions to play with and I chose these super cute Merry Kiss-mas Penguins, and this is what I did with it.

I used the following Spectrum Noirs - 

Body - IG1, IG2, IG4
Face - FS2 + blender
Jacket/Dress - TB1, TB2, TB3. HB1, HB2, HB3
Feet/Beaks - GB1, GB3

I chose these colours as I had some fabulous papers from Pink Gem Designs that I was itching to use, and instead of a card I decided to make one of my favourite boxes incorporating an easel card.

You can find a fabulous tutorial for this box card here.
Joani has done a fabulous tutorial with very clear instructions that is easy to follow, so I'm not even going to attempt my own!

I have made a matching box for this easel box card, I use a simple formula when making a box:
size + depth + depth = base
size + depth + depth + 1/8" = lid

I made my box 4 1/2" square, using my formula I cut my card 7 1/2" x 7 1/2", then scored * 1 1/2" on all four sides to make the base of my box, Then for the lid I cut my card 7 5/8" x 7 5/8" and scored the same *1 1/2" on all four sides.

 * if you want a deeper box add accordingly to formula at this point.

I've decorated my box and added a wrap with matching bow and gift tag.

and Taaah Daaah - finished project.
