Do you remember me making all these Christmas Trees using the Tim Holtz rosette dies? Well, I was giving them as presents for various family and friends, but I wanted to make them a lickle schnazzy with their own custom made boxes instead of wrapping them with tissue paper.
So a little fiddling with my Silhouette machine and some trial 'n' errors and these are what I came up with...
They were all cut from smooth white cardstock and then I placed DI re-inkers into mini misters with some water and perfect pearls. I chose the colours of DI re-inkers and sprayed the boxes to match the trees which were going to be inside. I then folded the boxes and inked the edges and then decorated the reverse with either Making Memories trees or glittered TH lamp posts. When I was spraying the boxes, I placed the card Snippets underneath the boxes I was spraying, so that they would pick up some of the ink. Then using the SU tag stamps I stamped the tags using various DIs and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then punched the tags using the SU tag punch and stamped the word Joy using a Hero Arts stamp. Another tag was cut to add the name of the recipient, some Snippets of ribbon and hey presto I had some swish looking tree boxes. And a bonus is I can enter these into the Playground, assuming it is open!!
I have delayed posting these until after Christmas as I did not want any recipients seeing them before the day!
I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas. I cannot believe it is New Year's Eve tomorrow. Has anyone got any plans to celebrate bringing the New Year?
Thanks for popping by. I know I have been a little quiet on the blogging front but it is Christmas.
Happy New Year to you all and thank you ALL for sharing my crafting fun and adventures throughout the year.
