Santa pop up box

Santa in the chimney pop up box.
I started off by cutting a piece of cream card too 9¼" x 3½". 
I scored the card at 1", 3½" and 4½". That should leave a ¼ piece at one end
I then used a brick stencil and dark red water reactive ink to create the bricks on to the card. I then cut a smaller piece of card at 4" x 1" and scored the long side at ¼" and 3¼". I cut some snowflake card and white card at  3½" x 6¾"
I adhered the little flap of the box to create the 3D box. I then added the little 4" x 1" inside the box using red liner tape. 
I adhered the snowflake piece of card into the box to create a backing piece using Collall all purpose glue. I then adhered the white card onto the back side to add extra stability and for a place to add your message.  
I stamped out Santa from the ho ho ho stamp set by crafters companion and coloured him using spectrum noir classique markers. 
I stamped out some little presents and a sentiment from another stamp set and colored them in.
I then fussy cut Santa and the presents. 
I die cut some holly leaves and berries, adhered them together and added some glitter using spectrum noir sparkle markers. 
I cut some white card at 5½" and cut out a snowy wavy line to make a snowy layer.
I added the snowy layer to the top of my box then adhered Santa into the box and the presents on to the bottom left hand corner. I then glued the holly leaves into the top right hand corner.
I finished it off adding the sentiment onto the background. 
Thanks for looking.
