I made this box using my most favouritist present that Santa bought me :) my score pal, I have wanted one of these for so long now and I finally have one.
I made the box using patterned cardstock from K&Company. The image is one from DewDrop Craftz Digital image selection. I love this image it is perfect for male cards and gifts. The ribbon is from the pound shop - it is amazing the things you can find in those shops for crafting. The button is from a 99p shop too and was perfect for the colours on this box.
I used a tutorial on this blog - Kitty Franken - her tutorials are brilliant and if you want to watch her actually make the box you can she does them in English too how great is that.
I made computer generated sentiments for the outside for the box.
This is the top view of the box. I coloured the image with my new Copic Markers that Santa brought me :) I used my 3 new greys colours which are W3- W5 - W7, I used E35, E37 and E29 for the hair, the scarf and other Green areas were coloured with G5, G7 and G17, the shirt was E31 and E35, I used E21 and E00 for the skin and W5 and W7 for the headphones.
I also used my white Souffle pen to add in some highlights on the hair and clothing.
Here is a picture of the box and the items I put in it - this is what my brothers and sisters would call a 'good sipper' it means that the lip is curved so the drink flows more smoothly - honestly it makes a whole lot of difference :) Ha ha
I have amended some of the pictures on my sidebar to show some of my Christmas with my family. Hope you all had a great Christmas with yours. Wishing you a happy new year xx
