Tis The Season Blog Hop Day 1

If you came here looking for my My Time To Craft post you will find it HERE.
Welcome to our
We are on Day 1!
There are only a few stops on this hop each day, and you are going to love the projects you see.
I am the fifth stop but just in case you have come here first and want to complete the hop 
Here is the entire list of stops for day 1:
Okay onto my project for today where I made two things. Firstly I needed a gift box for one of the presents I have brought for one of my grandchildren and went with this Santa's Chimney Box. I made it at the size it came in the file and it is a really good size, it measures 4" square and about 3.5" tall.
Here it is closed
 Here it is open without the lid.
Card Stock - Bazzill
Die Cuts - 3d Chimney Box #51814 - Snapdragon Snippets
For my second project I just couldn't resist making this lantern. It can be used as a box or as a lantern as I have it. I am not sure where I will go it yet but as the colours go with my lounge and it might end up there. I added a battery lamp, some gems and liquid pearls to the outside. The acetate does have snowdrops on it but as most were covered by the snowflakes I added some with liquid pearls. I added this bow as an after thought but not sure I like it so may take it off.
This is the front which I tried to take in the dark to show the lamp glowing but my flash keeps going off even when not turned on!
 This is a side view which doesn't show it at it's best lol.
Card Stock - Bazzill
Die Cuts - 3d Decorative Snowflake Lantern Box #51738 Jamie Cripps
Gems - Boyes
