Christmas Tree Gift Box - Dec 2009 Card Group Project

I thought it was time for a festive feel at Flower Sparkle so I've changed to a Christmas template - hope you like it!

Joanne showed us how to make these fab Christmas Tree gift boxes at a Make and Take evening last year. I thought they would be a great project for my card group to make at our December meeting.

I used my M&F board to make the favour box using a piece of A4 Old Olive CS cut in half lengthways. I punched small holes and threaded the gold elastic cord through. Then I cut Old Olive strips which I scalloped using the SU! Scallop Border Punch and sponged the edges with Old Olive ink. Then I cut the strips roughly to size, glued each strip to the box and trimmed off the excess once the glue had dried.

The tree is then decorated with gold sequins with Xmas Red Stickles glitter glue added. To finish off, a punched red star is added to the top. These would be great to hang from the Christmas tree or placed on the festive dinner table.

CS: SU! Old Olive & Real Red
Ink: SU! Old Olive
Tools: Coppernob M&F Board, SU! Scallop Border punch, X Cut star punch, small circle hole punch

Ooo I really like this. I never would have thought to use the scalloped punch to make a Christmas tree, very inspiring!
