...eeek! Christmas!!! Already!!! I had a demo day at Coleman's last weekend and had some samples to make before I went and amongst the things to alter from Candy Box Crafts was this mahoosive sleigh. Now, I don't do flat pack, I have NEVER done flat pack... the nearest to doing flat pack is me, armed with a butter knife and a hammer. Thankfully, these little fella's go together a whole lot easier than a normal flat pack so I attempted a transformation and this is what I made!
I used the new Graphic 45 Twas The Night Before Christmas collection papers to cover the body of the sleigh - painting the runners with Kaisercraft Black paint... and gluing the papers down, sanding them so the edges were nice and neat and then edging around with Frayed Burlap DI so the papers looked nice and vintage.
Now this fella is a biggy, from one end of the runner to the other is just larger than 12"... so imagine just how many chocolates you could pop into this and have it as a nice room decoration at Christmas... or... using it as a table decoration filled with crackers... or... buy some little bottles of bath smellies and fill it up for a bespoke pressie. Pretty cool huh!!! And... Candy Box Crafts also do a smaller version too, perfect for filling up with more choccies (I have a thing about choccies obviously) Anyways, this is one of my DT projects for Jones of Nottingham this month...
I will be back tomorrow with another creation made using more Graphic 45 papers... in the meantime, I am off to lay down in a darkened room, all this talk of Christmas has me having a fit of the vapours! Thanks for looking... TTFN
