It's not too late to save! 40% off all my designs now through Nov 30, 2010 and an exploding box!

Just in case you were out shopping yesterday or enjoying a late Thanksgiving it's not too late to save on my designs.  You can get 40% off through 11/30/2010.   There's still time to get those handmade gifts ready! Stop by my store today by clicking here.  Don't know what to make...I have some ideas for you.  Check out some fab projects by Lisa and Sue below.

Explosion Box

All the projects I'm about to show you involve the explosion box above.  Click on the words above the preview if you'd like to purchase.  This box really makes a great gift.  The box actually becomes the present.  A 2 for 1 kinda thing.  When you take off the lid the side "explode" leaving you with panels that can be decorated with photos and embellishments.  There is even a 3-D tree that can be attached to the middle if you choose as an added surprise.

First up here is a closer look at CDT Lisa's wonderful version of the box that is depicted in the store.  You can see the outside in the store preview above.  She did an awesome job!  In addition to the Explosion Box she used my Build a Wreath and Christmas Word Charms files.

Above is the inside view of the bottom panel and the next layer and also a close up of the 3-D tree.  What is nice about this box is you don't need to glue these panels together if you choose not to because the lid of the box keeps the panels secure when you close it.  I just love how Lisa stamped words on the photos too.  It's hard to see but there is a dove behind the tree.  This proves you don't have to use just photos on the panels.  You could even write the lyrics to a song or verses to your favorite poem. 

Sue realized that the Explosion Box had 12 panels.   So she decided to do a 12 days of Christmas box.  How FUN is that!  I think my kids would adore looking at a box like this time and time again.  Hmm maybe I should get Sue to make me one!  LOL!  Check out her amazing box below.  Oh and you can find the 12 days of Christmas file by Paperthread's Designs here

If you like the bow on top of the boxes.  You can get it in a separate file.  Click on the word above the preview to get it.  It makes great ornaments too (I'll  have to show you that example later when I get the file I used for it in the store).
