High Hopes challenge #189

Our new challenge this week at High Hopes is...
make a box.
Not something I normally make, so I turned to Splitcoaststampers and tried my hand at a little milk carton box.  I'm quite pleased with how it turned out - though a decent scoring board would have made it much easier than trying to match up dimensions on my ancient wooden scoring board!  I've temporarily closed my carton with a paperclip so you can see the shape, but didn't want to seal it properly until I'd something to put in it!!

My image is Motorin' By Santa - coloured with pencils and lots of glitter added to the fur on his hat/jacket/trousers.

ETA - just found this joke that I had to share ...
What type of motorbike does Santa drive?
A Holly Davidson
Hahahahaha!  Def one for the Christmas Cracker!

Other Challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday challenge - go dotty
Crafty Catz #201 - anything goes
Sparkles Christmas Challenge CH#33 - anything but a card
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra Challenge - October

  3. Lovely box Lynne and great joke, you should print it out and put it in the box with the gift! I've never made anything but a card before now either, then Sparkles asked me to join their Christmas DT. I jumped at the chance and found out my fist challenge was... anything but a card, lol! I panicked a bit I can tell you!! Thanks for playing along with us at Sparkles Christmas Challenges this month.
