The example she sent us had cute snowmen on it, but I thought given the design it was just begging to be turned into double doors! When you are making it you have to cut away the four corners of the paper so I re-purposed them to be panels. I sponged the edges with Craft Whisper White ink to make them stand out. I punched the door handles from the scraps of the smaller top panels using the jewelry tag punch and added brad door knobs.
Side view. Punch art pumpkin with a curly stem to dress up the door.
Without the belly band. The doors are opening on their own...makes it feel all hospitable and welcoming!
Card and belly band. I attached the Fall wreath to the band and added some craft ink to the band itself to make it stand out less when it is on the door.
Some goodies inside! I would have much preferred to put hot chocolate or a packet of spiced apple cider in here, but hubby's green tea will do nicely! :)
Doors open and box extended!! Whatever goodies you put in here need to be pretty flat so the card will close and the band will fit, but there are still lots of fun choices!
Close up of the band with wreath. The wreath is from the Warmest Wishes hostess set. I colored it with Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie markers to make it look all Fall-y!
What do you think? Isn't this the neatest idea! Giant kudos to whoever brain-stormed this big guy up! I am going to make a ton of these!!
Ok, time for me to jet! Literally...we are heading out today for some travel in just a few minutes! Heading home for the holiday! If you are traveling today too please be safe! Have a wonderful day friends!
