My DT project for our Make 1 for christmas over at OSAAT


Its Sunday and time for our new challenge over at One stitch at a time. 

Our theme for this week is 

Make one for christmas

We are sponsored by 
 so hop on over here and join in the fun HERE

I have seen ready made xmas cracker blanks online for sale but I thought they were expensive for what they are so I was determined to sit down and make my own from scratch from a piece of A4 card and with one of my Martha Stewart punches and I must say its looks quite similar to the online ones.

The images I have used are from a digi set called Mr Frosty which is by Hope Jacare Doodles and is available in the Stitchy Store.
 I have used the following Copics and Promarkers to colour the images, C00, Y17, E35, G21 and Berry Red

I have also used a Digi circle sentiment from Crafty Sentiments, gold card, green card, red roses, a leaf punch, gold peel offs and gold ribbon.

I am entering this cracker gift box into the following challenges
