O Christmas Tree

Hi there blog friends!  Yep, box mode again!   I can’t explain why but I’m rolling with it and it’s a good change of pace for me.  This is another of the October JustRite Stampers releases and this one is called O Christmas Tree.  I love the font and love the shape!!   I stamped the shape multiple times, scored and came up with a simple box that will work for place settings and favors and can be opened by a flap on the bottom.

Some of the smaller Spellbinders elements were used on the favors.  The two smaller elements from Spellbinders™ Layered Poinsettias were used on the red tree while Spellbinders™ 2011 Snowflake Pendants were used on the gold and white tree,

I stamped the three stamp four times in a fan arrangement and scored between each stamping.  Before cutting I allowed for a 3/8″ flap on one side and 1″ on all the bottoms.  I then matched the right sized Spellbinders™ Classic Squares LG and cut it on a fold to fashion a flap that I adhered to one of the 1″ flaps.  That let my box close on the bottom.  Then I cut a strip of paper 4 1/2″ long and scored it at 1″ intervals, turned and scored 1/2″ in.   This made the trunk of the tree – once assembled, I attached it to the bottom lid with glue dots.

    You are just so creative and such an inspiration! I recently came across you’re blog and have tried out a few of your ideas. They are so much fun. Thank you for getting my creative juices flowing again and for sharing your talent. One day I’m going to tackle the awesome pop up bird cage card. That’s my absolute favorite.ReplyCancel

  • Charlotte ZweigoronOctober 3, 2011 - 9:13 am

  • AndreaAOctober 3, 2011 - 9:34 am

    Wonderful ornament to hang on your tree!!!
    I love the colors also but can see that it would look good in many colors.

    I always make the younger kids a ornament for when the get old enough to have a tree of their own. Or some already do!!
    This just may be the one I do.
    Thanks Becca for sharing a great idea.ReplyCancel

  • LynetteOctober 3, 2011 - 10:25 am

    Beautiful, just might have to get those stamps. The Cricut “Bags Tags and Boxes” cartridge cuts a really nice Christmas Tree box in any size you like, but when I used them for gifts last Christmas they didn’t look anything like yours! Thanks for your beautiful ideas every day.ReplyCancel

  • SheilaOctober 3, 2011 - 10:37 am

  • Becky GreenOctober 3, 2011 - 12:03 pm

    BEAUTIFUL Becca!!!!!!!!!!!! I saw these on the JustRite site but, just didn’t pay attention to WHO made them!!!!!! I SHOULD HAVE KNOW it was YOU!!!!!!! :) These WOULD be PERFECT for a place setting! MAYBE, add a little candy inside???? :)ReplyCancel

  • Julie (Joypup on SCS)October 3, 2011 - 12:31 pm

    I would love a visual for how you stamped this and for the template (generalized) that you used for cutting and folding. This is a great project to re-create. Wonderful work, truly!ReplyCancel

  • Ann LindOctober 3, 2011 - 12:44 pm

    I would love to see a tutorail on how to make your tree books. These would be lovly on my Christmas table with small favors at each place setting. I love to check out your blog daily you are an inspiration your work and style are breath taking. TFS AnnReplyCancel

  • HeatherOctober 3, 2011 - 1:03 pm

    These are fantastic! I’m really hoping you will “show” how you made these since I am a very visual learner XX crossing fingers :)ReplyCancel

  • GerryOctober 3, 2011 - 1:03 pm

    What a neat idea for table decorations. I couldn’t find a description for the clearcut stamps — are they ready to use? Do they need to be cut out? How large are the various triangular stamps? How large is your finished triangular box?ReplyCancel

  • GerryOctober 3, 2011 - 1:05 pm

    Correction — JustRite “Clear” stamps (not Clear cut)ReplyCancel
