Reindeer Box (Stocking Die)

Anyone can make a stocking out of a stocking die. The challenge is to see what else you do with it. I turned it upside down and cut out two in soft suede to create this darling reindeer box. The smaller stocking pieces became his ears. I did decorate both sides of the box. I cut a piece of Frostwood Lodge DSP for the bottom at 11/2x3/2 and added a strip of real red cardstock cut 3/4x31/2. I taped the suede to the back of the dsp about halfway up. I added a red satin bow with a fire circle brad on the front side only. His antlers are cut freehanded. I drew a pattern on a piece of typing paper that was 51/2x6. Then I cut out two in chocolate chip. I sponged his body, antlers, noses, ears, and reins with chocolate chip before assembling. I used the large scallop circle to make the reins, then I added some large rhinestones (punch one time on the edge of red cardstock making half a punch then punch above that punch again, cut to fit). His eye is a 1/2 black circle with highlights using a white gel pen. His nose is a 3/4 red circle. The box is 41/2x81/2, scored at 2, 4, 6, and 8. Then I turned it again and scored 3 inches from the top. I used my new SIMPLY SCORED SCORING TOOL. What a dream!! I cut the bottom flaps and assemble using red sticky tape. Attach both decorated heads to the box with red sticky tape. I added the patterns of the antlers and the box to help you out. I feel a class coming on!
