For these two boxes, I've taken the Christmas Tree Change Up stamp set and stamped the surfaces of the Christmas Tree Change Up Box. I've placed a four sided star on the Simply Chartreuse tree and a place label on the Pure Poppy tree. Notice all that detail in that label!
These are perfect decorations for your holiday table. You can see the slot at the top of the box that allows things like stars and labels to fit in the top. It also allows the sides of the tree to fold up easily. Use them as just accents or as place card holders.
Included in the Christmas Tree Change Up Box Dies, is an optional zipper die. You can add these to your tree box to make them functional as well as decorative. There are stamps in the Christmas Tree Change Up Stamp Set that build two different multi-step sentiments that fit the inside of this zippered area perfectly. Imagine having some mints inside the box for after dinner? Or they perfectly fit Ferraro Rocher candies. YUM!
I've put together a video to show you how the Christmas Tree Change Up Box and Stamp Sets work together. And even how you put that zippered element in. Just hit play to learn more.
And finally, my favorite:). Of course we needed to make this pyramid box shape into a felt ornament, right? Oh man, I love these things. Isn't it a beaut?
There are Christmas Tree Stitching Dies to work with the Christmas Tree Box Die to add stitching holes onto the felt and allow you to sew them up into delightful felt trees. I'm in love.
I have a video to explain that process as well. Very simple for all you hand stitching addicts out there.
You can make the felt tree ornaments as simple or as complicated as you like. Here, I just used buttons to decorate the sides.
Or you can have a slightly more elaborate look with the two detail dies included in the Christmas Tree Change Up Stitching Dies. There is on that put lots of little holes for beading and sequins. (Doesn't take nearly as long to sew this together as you would think. It goes pretty quick.) The other one cuts holes for the almost Nordic design on the Pure Poppy tree above.
For a sweet finishing touch, I found that the Coffee Cozy Detail Dies look really adorable on the bottoms of the trees! Just delights me.
OK. You know it all now. The Christmas Tree Change Up Collection can be used on cards, table top decor, place settings, treat boxes, and felt ornaments! Whew! That's a lot of versatility to pack into one collection. It's the "jack of all trades" this holiday season, which makes it an amazing value and entirely too much fun when it comes to creating. What will you make?
Thanks for joining me today. More inspiration can be found on Nichole's blog. And the Christmas Tree Change Up Collection will be available at 10 PM EST at www.papertreyink.com.
