Tree Ornament Box

Ok, I saw this cute box/ornament and knew that it would be super fun...and it is!! This was the Technique Lovers Challenge this past week, if you'd like a link to the challenge to get the template, click here and it will take you right to it!

It's great you can put your cardstock or patterned paper right into the printer, print the template and you get 2 per piece of paper! I thought they would be a fun thing to make for my upcoming Christmas Market, so I made about 16 of them yesterday:).

The go really quick, once you have decided how to decorate! A wheel would make it super quick, but I LOVE the snowflakes in the Snow Burst set, so I used that set and chocolate chip ink. I pulled out my stash of soft sky...I miss using this color as much as I did last year! I still love it, and think it is a wonderful color for the holiday! These would look VERY cool on my tree...fun, fun, fun! I used chocoatle chip grosgrain for the hanger, and made some with a star topper, some with out. The star was the large stampin' up star punch.

So, print template cut it out, stamp/decorate, score, cut slits(as shown on template), and put together! Super quick and easy! The sentiment I chose for this (among most other holdiay stuffs) is from the Best Yet hostess set. I stamped it with chocoalte chip, punched it out with the large oval punch and then layered that on a chocolate chip wide oval punch. I attached it with dimensionals..and there you have it! Yes, it does have some delicious German chocolate inside...but I made some with little packs of gummy bears, etc., and I think lots of different things could fit inside! I just had this thought, how cute would it be to use this template to make party favors...a party hat?! FUN!

Thanks for stopping by! Make it a great one!

These are awesome. I love the colour scheme. I've been wanting to try these too - I wish I had the star punch for them though.

They turned out beautiful! I tried them too and had the idea as party favors (hats) too. Haven't posted them yet but mine turned into a red, white and blue patriotic Christmas tree. They are too much fun!
