Bugaboo ABaC Monday

What's an ABaC? Well it stands for Anything But a Card. Every Monday, a DT Member from Bugaboo's 'Catch the Bug' blog uses Bugaboo images to create something different - and today is my turn!

I have created this little Christmas set with the Rudolph images. I love these images (in case you hadn't guessed yet).


It's a little treat box and a notelet book. The box was made using a Lauren Meader template from Papertrey. This is my first attempt at using it. I usually have a quick practice using some cheaper white cardstock but this time I risked it and printed straight onto my final colour scheme! Luckily it all worked out fine. I really like the shape and the way the lid flap tucks away underneath the base. I can see me using this box quite a bit for small gifts. It's quite a good size and easy to put together.


All the cardstock is SU - Old Olive and Real Red - a great Christmas combo. The papers are also SU and match perfectly. The topper on the box was punched using some of my SU punches.


Here are some closer looks at the two projects.

Paul this is so wonderful. I love the box and now I need to go check out that template. The note boo cover is so fun too. Those would make great gifts for all your friends to use for shopping lists and notes. Cool.
