BBTB2 CD Box and Sleigh!

Good Morning, hope you had a good weekend.
Mine was spent with family and then close friends for dinner followed by a family game of golf, Christmas tree decorating and a film. It really was a fun and relaxing weekend. It makes a change to have a weekend without schedules and racing round! Christmas party season has started!
Our lovely leader, Susan, is our host this week over at BBTB2 and has asked us to make a holiday gift container.
I made 2 projects, my first is a table treat holder....

I cut the sleigh at 4" from Create a Critter 2. I flipped the image and cut it again for the other side and made a simple box to attach the sleighs too and added chocolate.
The poinsettia is a die.
These are super quick and easy and I will add a name to each sleigh and have them as place setting/treat holders for my guests at Christmas.
My other project is a  CD box....
This was hard to photograph to show it's a box and not a card!
I cut this from TBBM2 at fit to page.
The DP is MME.
Do you like my little penguin...I made him too!
I love needle felting.
The parcel is cut at 3" from Create a Critter 2.
I know this is a CD box but as we download music I thought I would put an I-tunes card in here instead.
My fabulous DT teamies have lots of awesome projects to inspire you so do check them out and come and join in the fun.

  8. Jayne ~ Oh this is so darn ADORABLE and CUTE ~ the sleigh! Then the cd box ~ oh so CLEVER!! Looks like you are a great start for Christmas over there!

  9. Jayne, both boxes are so pretty. (as your work always is) But I think the star is your little penguin. He is adorable. I've always wanted to learn that.

  10. OMGosh Jayne, both the sleigh treat box and the CD box are just awesome!!! I love both and love the idea of putting an itunes gift card in the CD box! But I have to say I love, love your cute little penguin the most! lol I just tried needle felting for the first time, and I must say I found it so much fun and so relaxing! I haven't dove into getting the supplies yet, but I probably will in the future. lol Hugs my friend!

  11. What a BEAUTIFUL sleigh Jayne! I love how you made this with the Create a Critter 2 cartridge. It is just adorable and all the added touches are adorable! The CD case is awesome and perfect for I Tunes card...may have to scrap lift that idea!
    So glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  12. Oh Jayne, love love that sleigh, I am ready to go for a ride, lol, hugs

  13. Jayne ~ What fabulous projects!! You are such an inspiration to me!!

    I'm hoping you can help me. I LOVE both of your projects, but I'd LOVE to try to make that sleigh.

    1) I have Create a Critter 2 and an Expression. (I am just learning, which will be obvious with this question ... but can I flip my sleight with just the cartridge or do I have to have a Gypsy or use CCR?

    2) How did you create the "simple" box to place between the sides of the sleigh? (Nothing is simple to this newbie!!). :)

    I'd appreciate any help!! I'd like to try to make this with my granddaughter ... who would be THRILLED with this project.

    Thanks again for all of the inspiration!!


  14. Each is such a lovely project ! I love all of them !


  15. Love, love the sleigh and the CD box is fabulous. But AI have to agree with the others, your little penguin is just the most adorablest thing I've ever seen!!!! :)

  16. I love your sleigh and the CD bos what great gift boxes just as good as the gift. Have a great day
