2nd Day - Holiday Blog Tour

Welcome back to day 2 of the Remarkable Holiday Blog Tour. I hope you enjoyed looking at all of the great creations yesterday and know that you'll be excited about the second day's "stuff". I've always wanted to try and make one of these and finally got up the nerve. I was home sick with a really bad cold and had lots of time on my hands, so I'd do a few steps, take a nap, a few more steps, take a nap.... I'm pleased with how it turned out. I had seen this made with numerous different papers, but never as a Christmas stationary box. I made this entirely with the SU Simply Scrappin Christmas Jingle and the SU Dasher Stamp. This is what it looks like open:

And finally, the innards:

I took this to work with me and showed it to one person and ended up with three orders. I told them I had to finish the blog tour before I could make any more of these.
Thank you for all of your comments! Don't forget to click on Becky's blog to get to the next stop. See you tomorrow....
