Twilight Wishes Exploding Christmas Thank You Box Card

I adore the colours in the Dovecraft Twilight Wishes collection and so it was my first choice to make very special Christmas thank you gifts.  This particular one is slightly different to the other 2 but only in recards the removeable card inside the lid, which has a different design.

My YouTube link shows the card in more detail: https://youtu.be/Q2QR-2sKGCs

I created the box itself from lilac coloured card and matted panels from the Twilight Wishes Papers and the modern tree style section is cut from new double sided glitter card which gave me double glitter sided panels!!  I carefully snipped mini snowballs in half and glued onto the glitter card for my own version of christmas trees.

I added chocolate coins to the panels used glue dots so they can be removed.

I made the bobble hat in the centre from lilac & purple wools wrapped around a ring of card, it hides a mini chocolate inside., star sequins have been glued onto the centre panel for the bobble hat to sit on, it stays in place when the box is closed up.

The lid has sentiment ribbon adhered around it using strong permatape.  I used a special die to create the layered poinsettia for the top, it has a hidden sentiment which is revealed when you pull open the petals. I stamped the sentiment in purple ink to co-ordinate.  

Inside the lid I added a little concertina folded card to match, a little gold envelope houses a personal thank you note and the card is folded up and secured inside the lid with ribbon tied in a bow. To finish, I added a gold glitter gift tag and tied on with the gold skiny tinsel  (not pictured)

Thank you! I didn't get to add all the extra details that I wanted to, as I made 3 of these for special friends, and needed to get them out quickly, so I will be revisiting the design and tweaking it :)
