Christmas Tree Box

This week's technique challenge on SCS was to create a Christmas Tree box. The pattern and directions can be found HERE. It was soooo easy-peasy to create and look how cute it is! I'll definitely be creating more of these in the future.

This is a picture of the closed box. You can easily hang it on a Christmas tree and use it as just an ornament, or fill it up with chocolate goodies! I stamped the entire box with one of the pattern stamps from Papertreyink's Merry & Bright stamp set. I then folded the box up and decorated the outside.

I used Ridinghood Red and Always Artichoke cardstock and ink to decorate the outside of the boxes. I then also stamped some Hershey's Nuggets for the boxes.

I could fit 4 Hershey's Nuggets inside each Christmas Tree box. It was a tight fit, but they do squeeze in there.

Here's the recipe:

Stamps: Merry & Bright and Merry & Bright Additions from Papertreyink
Ink: Ridinghood Red, Always Artichoke
Paper: Kraft, Very Vanilla, Ridinghood Red, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Ridinghood Red tafetta ribbon, Snow Blossom punch, small star punch, word window punch, petite oval Nestabilities, rhinestone brads from the Pretties kit, dimentionals, Hershey nuggets, address labels

That's all for today! Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful day!!! :)
