Christmas hanging lantern box

Been working on this little box all week as a Christmas project for Kathy Troup of Stitch with the embroiderers guild magazine. This is the second go as the prototype colours turned out completely wrong. So it was back to the drawing board and different colours were put in to the layering system before I machined the design. I don’t mind making the item but I do so love putting it all together with all the twiddly bits and bobs that make it pretty. I am quite sad becoz I absolutely love covering the wire with machine thread by sewing machine and then bending or coiling it.
I just need to find a suitable box to send it in
