Carolina Girl (Cely)
I hope it is true that great things come in "small packages"...haha  I needed a way that would be fun to present my DIL with a Groupon and money....her Christmas present.  I just didn't want to present them in a card.  You can see the Groupon folded on one side and the money will be on the opposite side.

I did Santa's sleigh and then placed flying reindeer at different heights.  When the box is opened everything seems as if they are flying (movement). I created a sleigh and reindeer svg last year and the other reindeer is a MS punch.  The poinsettia is from from the Wintergreen Collection.

I'm entering this in Joan's Gardens challenge: decorate a box to use at Christmas

    This is such a cool idea and love the movement of the deer and the little mouse inside with a note. Love the pocket idea. It's an awesome present and your DIL will love for sure.. If not I'll take it.LOL It's awesome.

    Oh she is going to adore this. The reindeer and sleigh - are they attached with...the clear transparency paper stuff (this is what happens at 4 in the morning with a cold that never quite went away and is returning in force).
    And is that a little snow bear - a glass figure? I love how you got her a groupon! I got my husband a Living Social and thought - he's going to think I'm cheap cuz it's a coupon. But if there are others in the world, then I've been reassured.

    This is a fabulous job. She is going to love this surprise when she opens it. You are so very creative. Thanks for sharing this gorgeous project in our challenge at Joan's Gardens.

  15. Wow, what a creation! I love the moving reindeer! and that poinsettia is gorgeous. It must have taken a lot of patience. They have too many pieces! I don't think I'll include them next year.
