Christmas box

I'm still working like mad on Christmas presents. Miles to go before I sleep :) I wanted to make a drawer box for my sister's present. I used this tutorial, and just made two and taped them on top of each other. I decorated the top and each drawer bottom, so there's a little surprise when she opens each one.

The top is decorated using a Sugar Nellie image. My sister has a farm with horses, so this image is just perfect for her. I used this tutorial on coloring jeans with Copics. I'm really pleased with how her clothes turned out. Slowly, I'm getting better with the Copics. I used papers from DCWV, and added a silver snowflake brad and Stickles around the image.

I'd like to enter this part in the Sugar Nellie #49 challenge - sketch plus snowflakes.

The next drawer features an image from The Stamping
Bazaar. He's a freebie this month, so don't miss out! The papers are again from DCWV - same large paper pack. The sentiment is a freebie from Bizzy Becs. I added Stickles to the white parts of his hat and around the inside of the sentiment - a little hard to see. I used tiny green buttons on the drawn buttons on the image. This is one of my favorite embellishments.

I'll be putting candies in this drawer.

I'd like to enter this part in The Stamping Bazaar's Challenge #8 - sketch.

The last drawer uses this month's freebie from Digis with Attitude. I colored the image with Copics and added some darker Stickles to frame this image. I'm going to put a gift certificate in this drawer.

I'd like to enter this double drawer project in the following challenges:
1. Digis with Attitude #11 - anything Christmas
2. Bunny Zoe #7 - sparkle and shine
3. Copic Creations #41 - Sparkle!
4. Top Tip Tuesday #14 - Christmas inspired
5. Winter Wonderland - Wrap it Up
7. Saturday Challenge #114 - in the farmyard (the horse image on the top)

Hope you're getting done with your presents too.
Happy Crafting!
