Children's Christmas Shaker Boxes

Hi Crafters

This week I'm continuing my love affair with the Santa's Workshop designer papers! I really need to make other things, but one last little project ....



I was inspired by Sally Stampers on YouTube. She made a lovely shaker box and as soon as I saw it, I knew it would lend itself to the gorgeous Santa dsp! I've used all her measurements just changing it a little by not stamping at all - just paper, glue and beads.



These are destined for my older three grandchildren, the youngest is only just turned 1, so still putting everything he sees into his mouth!


I've included a YouTube tutorial below, but the measurements are as follows:

Box Base
Card: 7″ x 7″ score all sides at 2″ (18cm x 18cm, score at 5cm)   
      
DSP:  2 15/16 x 2 15/16″ (7.9cm x 7.9cm)
           4 pieces  1 15/15″ x 2 15/16″ (7.0cm x 4.9cm)
      
Box Lid
Card: 6″ x 6″ score all sides at 1.5″ (16cm x 16cm, score at 4cm)
             1 square piece 2 15/16 x 2 15/16″ (7.9cm x 7.9cm) for inside the lid

Acetate: 1 square piece 2 15/16 x 2 15/16″ (7.9cm x 7.9cm)

DSP: 1 square piece 2 15/16 x 2 15/16″ (7.9cm x 7.9cm)
          4 pieces 2.75″ x 1.25″ (7.5cm x 3.5cm)
