I made the box using card stock, coasters from Chili's, Spellbinders Classic Circle dies- the 2 largest, acetate, ribbons, and score tape. The sentiment is my own. 

The napkin ring was made using one of the empty rolls from Glue Dots. I wrapped ribbon around it over lapping each section as I went. I attached the Nutcracker to acetate 3/4 of the way up him sticking beyond his feet 1 1/2". I then folded the Acetate in a right angle adhered it to the napkin ring when I still had about 1 1/2" left to wrap ribbon on. I preceded to wrap the ribbon on it making sure I wrapped the last 3/4" of the section with the acetate too. I then made sure the fold in the acetate was correct for the Nutcracker to stand up. You may need to work a little with this. 

My Nutcrackers are 4 1/4" tall.
