Sleigh Shaped Box- Recycled Craft

Sleigh Shaped Box
Sleigh Shaped Box
Shaped Boxes are fascinating ! In this project I recycled a cardboard box to make a sleigh shaped  gift box.I cut the cardboard box free hand using a Xacto knife and lined it with locally available glitter paper.
Sleigh Shaped Box 
I used a sleigh image [from Navneet publishers paper models]and decorated the sleigh with small plastic flowers,red pearl string and Christmas bell ornaments.
Sledge Shaped Box
I twisted together a silver and red chenille stem to make a collar for Rudolf the reindeer [from Navneet publishers again].I looped a red pearl garland on the antlers and gave him a red rhinestone nose!We also used a silver  chenille stem[pipe cleaner]  to attach the reindeer to the sleigh box

We added tiny gift boxes filled with sweets and small trinkets in the sleigh box.

Here is our Sleigh shaped box which can be gifted to someone special or just adorn your house!

  22. Amazing free hand cut of the sleigh. I'm afraid my cutting with Xacto knife or even with th4e Cricut or such is no where up to this level. The embellishing is bee-utiful. This is a gift & more. Glad you got to meet with a fellow blogger. I had the pleasure of meeting an Internet friend that I know thru a photography site when I visited Toronto Canada Mar this yr where my hubby was working for 3 wks and it was nice to meet a fellow Internet person.
    Happy New Year!

    As for this sleigh box, would it be too cheeky to say that it is totally out of the box thinking? LOL

  34. This is so sweet and cheerful Sonia! Such a fun holiday decoration! The little boxes inside the crafty sled reminded me of a project I made as a child with my mom. I was going to try it next year with my girls. We used to take our old Christmas cards and make little gift boxes out of them! We always had so much fun making them, filling them, and giving them away! I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday! I've missed visiting! Happy New Year from Amber and my 3 little Es
