·                Paint your box with gold craft paint
·                Apply gold embossing powder to your title chippie DC90 002 and heat emboss
·                Cover your Holly chippie DC90 011 with green ink.  Apply some red embossing powder to the holly berries and heat emboss.  Swipe a few stripes of white acrylic paint to highlight the leaves.  Once dry, apply glossy accents and set aside to dry. Then cut from frame
·                From C90 001, cut a green strip that reads ‘Happy Holidays’ and ‘Merry Christmas’ and use this as the spine of your book.  Adhere with Tombow
·                Cover the front and the back of your book with C90 005 (red side up).  Adhere with Tombow and sand off any protruding edges
·                Adhere your title chippie to the upper portion of your book.  Fussy cut some holly leaves from C90 005; and then create a flower and leaf cluster below your title, using the flowers, leaves, metal trinket(s) and the fussy cut holly leaves.  Swipe with a little heavy white gesso
·                Cover the inner left hand side page of your book with C90 008 (checkered side up). Sand off any protruding edges and then ink all around with brown.  Using your DS059 stencil, stencil some of the design onto this page with green ink and your blending tool; use a coloured pencil to ‘shade’ your leaves.  Then apply some gold crackle paste through the swirls of the stencil around the green inked portion.  Once dry, adhere your DC90 011 holly chippie over the stencilled design you’ve created
·                Fussy cut the Santa from C90 003, adhere to some craft cardstock and fussy cut around him again.  Create an ‘L-shaped’ stand, as he is going to be in the foreground of the inner part of your book.  Fussy cut some Christmas trees from C90 007 and a snowman family from a sheet from your Carders Pack and chalk the edges with brown
·                Cut a piece of C90 006 down to measure the inner portion of the box part of your book. Adhere with Tombow and dry brush some white craft paint across the central part
·                Arrange and adhere your fussy cut trees and snowman family to this; use both Tombow and foam dots to create a 3D effect
·                Adhere your fussy cut Santa to the bottom framed part of your book so that he stands in the forground
·                Pull your cotton pads apart and cut them to resemble snow (icicles for the upper frame of your box and mounds for the lower part).  Adhere these accordingly (as shown in the photographs) with Tombow.  Arrange and adhere some more pieces of cotton pads around and behind your Santa so that it appears that he is walking in snow
·                Fussy cut some of the snowflakes from a sheet from your Carders Pack and arrange and adhere these to the upper section of ‘icicle’ snow

·                Finish off the characters and trees in this section with glitter glue
