The Christmas Box is Finished

The Christmas Break Front Box

Remember a few blog posts ago when I showed you the photo of pieces of wood, ready to be made into a 'break front' box? Well, here it is, finished at last!
  So, take off the lid....
The box lid is covered in fabric and tied with ribbon
Then let down the front and there you have it - a Christmas market stall selling Santas!

A good way to display my collection of little Santas

The side that folds down gives extra display space

I am pleased with the way this has turned out. I think it will have pride of place under our Christmas tree this year!


  1. The box looks wonderful, and such a nice variation on the theme! I really love your collection of Santas, it makes such a great display.

    1. Thank you, Sandra. We have our Christmas lunch at minis club this Sunday so I worked hard to get this finished in time. It will be interesting to see what the other members have made their boxes into.
