December 25th Caddy Box

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a box I created as a companion piece for the Jolly Old St. Nicholas Notepad I shared yesterday. You can find that post HERE. I used Eileen Hull’s Card Caddy Diecut along with a couple of other dies/thinlits. So let’s get started!

First, I applied Adhesive Sheets to both sides of a piece of Mat Board and placed patterned cardstock to both sides before cutting out one box and two sides.

To make the sides lay flush on the inside of the box I “peeled” the mat board from the tabs.

I adhered the bottom tab on the side panels to each side of the box.

Next I added adhesive to each of the longer tabs and glued each side of the box into place.

Now for the fun part…adding embellishments! I cut and intertwined two wreaths from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits along with raiding my stash of Christmas ephemera and embellishments and decorated one side of the caddy.

I also added a Santa that I had fussy cut from scrapbook paper (I did the same for the notepad) and glued the word “Christmas” to the label that’s included with the Caddy Card Diecut and a poinsettia to finish.

The notepad fits perfectly inside the box! Also as a side note you can create a journal from the Caddy Card Box. Maybe one day I will get around to making one?
