One For The Boys

I made one of these ‘card in a box’ cards at the beginning of the year and hadn’t made another until this one. I just love the Mo Manning images on these toppers from The Hobby House.

I made the box from a piece of deep turquoise/blue card and covered it with some jolly bunting print card (also from The Hobby House). I used one of the toppers for my front panel.

I cut the boy and teddy, puppy and soldiers from the other toppers in the set and attached them inside the box.

Finally I used an Xcut die to cut bunting from red and blue card, and attached that to acetate strips and arranged inside.
