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.
