Die Cutting Paper: Filigree Reindeer Sleigh

We have a fun treat for you today that is sure to help inspire your Christmas crafting. This month's Sizzix guest designer is Jim "The Gentleman Crafter" Hankins. Jim is known for his elaborate out of the box creations. He definitely sees something in papercrafting elements that few others would see. His project for us is no exception!

Father to many dogs and ducks and a cat named Buzzy out on a farm in Granger, Texas. I love to use my hands and mind to create anything! There is nothing I love better than sitting down with a fresh roll of scor-tape and some chipboard! You never know what will happen!
Jim, The Gentleman Crafter

About the project from Jim:
This fun sleigh project is made from some really cool Sizzix dies, patterned paper and chipboard. Perfect for your collection of Christmas tags, Christmas cards or whatever festive goodies you may gather this holiday season.

Get ready to be amazed...

Jim created this incredibly detailed sleigh complete with a team of reindeer using chipboard, pattern paper, and Sizzix dies!

He left no detail undone, including a very regal seat for Santa!

The sleigh has an area behind the drivers that is perfect for displaying small decorations or treats.

The details continue right on to the team of reindeer leading the sleigh that are amazingly dimensional.

Are you thoroughly amazed?  Jim has created a step-by-step set of printable directions complete with a supply list.  With these instructions, you will be able to recreate this project yourself!
