Do you have any ideas for a Christ­mas post­box that I could make with my daugh­ter, to go with her let­ter to Santa Claus?

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Crafter’s Q&a - Larissa David­son, Totnes

Sarah says: What a lovely idea, Larissa – your daugh­ter is go­ing to love do­ing this with you! I’ve cre­ated a post­box that’s three di­men­sional, but the beauty of it is that it can be folded flat to fit in an en­ve­lope if re­quired. Start with a 170x220mm piece of red card for the back panel and score down the long side at 10, 60, 160 and 210mm. Fold into a box shape and dec­o­rate with fes­tive pa­pers. Trim a 100x220mm piece of red card for the front, cut out a slot, then at­tach to the back panel to cre­ate the 3D post­box. Add a piece of shaped white card to the top to cre­ate the dome and at­tach with sticky fix­ers. Die-cut an en­ve­lope from cream card us­ing the XCut A5 En­ve­lope Die Set, pop your daugh­ter’s let­ter to Santa in­side, then at­tach to the post­box with a length of baker’s twine. I’ve then used Christ­mas Vil­lage by Helz Cup­pled­itch Glit­ter Stick­ers and mo­tifs from the 12x12 Pa­per Pack to dec­o­rate the box.

Kids will love this post­box!
