Nutcracker

Hi there.  No card share today as I've just not had time and I was VERY busy in my craft room over the weekend.  Firstly, my niece wanted me to cut her some vinyl stars on my Cameo to go on the walls of her nursery that she is decorating and secondly, my friend who manages a jewellery shop locally, asked me to make something to go in the shop window as they were having a 'nutcracker' theme display.
 
Gosh,  some of these pieces were fussy and I ended up with glue everywhere but here are some of them:-
 
SVG cuts Nutcracker Soldier and drum
 
This soldier is a file I bought from SVG Cuts last year (although I can't find the link on their website)and the drum is from the Silhouette Store and is a Hexagon Box that I converted into a drum.  The soldier is actually a box too and his head lifts off and he is very easy to put together. 
 
The drum and also the mouse (again from the Silhouette Store by Snapdragon Snippets Design ID #106396) were extremely time consuming to make but I did enjoy putting them all together!!
The mouse is designed to be a pull along toy using a golf ball but I just made his body into a complete box.

Nutcracker Mouse Box

I was going to make a couple more of these mice but time ran out on me!  And so did my glue!!

I also cut out some candy canes and soldiers to make into a couple of banner displays. 

Hoping to get a card made this week as my Cameo is still panting after this weekend's crafting!!
 
I also found out that I had an Honourable Mention over at the CASology Challenge - Cute
 

Yay!
 
Toodles,
