Day 7 of Sunehra's Christmas Craft Countdown - It's Sleigh Time!!!

Today I have to say I am really delighted with my creations. I had this 3D sleigh Cameo cut file since last Christmas and I never used it. I finally decided to try it out today as part of my Christmas craft Countdown. Once again to recap, I've set myself a challenge for Christmas. My Countdown Goal is simple - Every day from November 1st to November 30th, I'm going to make 3 projects. They could be cards, tags, gift boxes, ornaments, whatever I want to complete but I have to complete at least 3 projects every day. To see my previous Countdown projects, click here.

Here is my 3D sleigh cut on my Cameo, which I have intended to be a Christmas Treatbox. Every year, I present homemade sweet treats to friends and neighbours in a handmade box. Last year I made a whole bunch of identical Poinsettia boxes which you can view here. And I have to say the monotony of making the same thing over and over again really got to me. So this year I'm going to have some fun with the boxes. My Sleigh Treatbox is one of the options. It's actually quite roomy measuring 10" long by 4.5" wide and 5.5" tall, perfect to hold some home made cookies, cupcakes and chocolates.

Of course with each sleigh candy box, I have to present a sleigh card right? Ha ha - maybe... maybe not but since I was making a sleigh, I decided to make a coordinating sleigh card. The same cut file was used with my Cameo albeit in a smaller size to create this Ho Ho Ho Card. 

And to take the set a little further, I made a coordinating tag as well. The sleigh cut file was further crunched to make a small little embellishment which I combined with card stock and pattern paper. 

Today again I finished my Sleigh Set too late to photograph it in natural light. So I was forced to turn on the lights to capture my work but I will re-click them tomorrow to better present the colours and design. UPDATE: The pictures above are the re-clicked images.
