Christmas Gift Book Box

Hi there everyone and hope that you all had the best Christmas ever and that you got loads of crafting goodies from Santa. We had a nice relaxing day with the kids and my Dad and I also had the chance to play with some of my crafting goodies that I got my Santa ;o)

I know that you are probably sick of seeing anything Christmasy now but I didn't get the chance to post this before Christmas and I've seen these book boxes around blogland the last few weeks so I thought that I'd have a go at making one.

The image that I've used is Noelle Bearing Gifts from Mo's Digital Pencil and I've coloured her using my ProMarker pens.

I've inked all the edges using Brushed Corduroy distress inks.

The DP I've used is Tim Holtz and the tag I made using the Magical Tag die from Whiff of Joy and the flowers I made myself using my slice machine.

Edited to add:- in the next couple of days, I shall put together a tutorial on how I made this book box and will post it on here.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope that you have a fabulous day.

  3. Gorgeous as always Michele! I love the colours that you've used and your colouring is always superb girlie! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas as well. So excited as I got the entire collection of Promarkers so I've been stalking your tutorials. :) Hope you'll be making more. You are such a great teacher. Also, would love to see how you store your markers. I saw a Tesco cd case idea that, so far, I really like so I've ordered one of those to try. Thank you Michele for being such an inspiration. xxxx
