Security Box Alarmed by Jingle

A container with its own built-in alarm system.

The lid is loaded with Jingle Bells.

Punch a hole suitable for the drawer pull in the lid. Then pierce holes for the Jingle Bells. Paint the box (I used white acrylic craft paint covered with a layer of gesso). Tape the end of the heavy duty bead to the top of the box, and sew on a Jingle Bell (coming out through the same hole). I covered each hole with Scotch Tape as I sewed on the bells. I cut mats for the top and sides of the lid from Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy cardstock, and the sides of the box too. Just a note, measure for the mats with the lid ON lol. I added paper from K&Company on the top and the sides. Repunch the hole for the drawer pull and attached it.

To make the crest for my "Alarmed by Jingle" logo, I wrestled with Cricut Craft Room (I'm in the Gypsy camp)  and my Imagine and welded two Crests together from Fontopia. I used the Text Box to make the slogan (Art Nouveau Font 2). I just printed the text on one layer, then print and cut the crest and its topper on the second layer. Then I blinged it up with a glue pen and red embossing tinsel over the "Jingle" and outlined the crest and its elements with Ruby Slippers Pure Glitz.

To give a little dimension to the logos I used Tombow  Multiglue and allowed it to dry a little before attaching to the sides of the box. I lined the interior with Press and Seal, all it needs now is the treats :).
