Christmas, Stampin' Up!, Tutorial

Stampin'Up! Tutorial – Gift Boxed Nutcracker Figure with Acetate Window – Intermediate Level Crafting

** Update** Now – unfortunately the Santa’s Workshop Suite Products, many are either unavailable or very low stock – but I thought I’d publish this blog anyway as the gift box is just lovely and we are still in the lead up to Christmas.  You can do this project with any of the Stampin’Up! Product Suites, just not the Santa’s Workshop one… have a nosey over in my shop via the “Shop Now” Link in the main menu above 🙂
