LeighSBDesigns Christmas in July Blog Hop #3


Once again LeighSBDesigns is hosting a blog hop.
This time it is to celebrate CHRISTMAS in JULY

This morning I got up pretty early to join in with the Zoom Craft and Chat with the UK Stampers Network. Claire was showing us how to make a 'cat in a box' card...the idea is that a cat has got into a cardboard box - one that might have come through the mail...

The box is made from a small strip of kraft card scored and folded and glued. A strip is stuck inside to add the 'cat' to. The box will fold flat to go in an envelope - or even as part of a card. I found a 'nutcracker', already coloured in my bits and pieces, and decided to put that in my box rather than a cat. I think this could be a digi from Ike.
I added used postage stamps (also in my folder) to the edges of the box.

I will add this to Leigh's Linky. 

Happy Crafting!


  1. Love your nutcracker Susan!
