Project Description

The Nutcracker “Sweet” Holiday Promotion

This holiday promotion was a fun departure from the Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky. I used an Epson Inkjet printer to print my design on Strathmore Bristol paper. Printing on an inkjet printer helped reduce costs and allowed me to personalize the message inside of this promotional piece for each client. The box opens along the jawline and reveals an assortment of holiday treats.
