Santa I've Been Nice!

Hi everyone, well according to the Christmas Tree Countdown calendar on the side bar to my blog there is now only 33 days to Christmas ..... yikes!!!!!!!!

So of course that means it is time to get started making some Christmas type projects and one I wanted to share with you all today is this Christmas Tree cut out Pillow Box. This is a template that is available to purchase from The Cutting Cafe. Once you purchase the template the file is sent to you as a PDF or WPC if you have a Pazzles cutting machine (which I don't) and then you can just print it out using your printer and create away.

I printed mine onto white card and then just covered the white card with designer paper so that the template image would be on the inside of the box when completed.

Once I had cut out the Christmas Tree shape from the centre of the box (this is preprinted on the pillow box) I then outlined the edge of the tree shape with a green spicia pen to give it some definition. I then attach clear acetate over the cut out shape on the inside of the box.

I finished off my pillow box by adding some red ribbon and one of the Christmas Circle Printable Stamps which are also available from The Cutting Cafe.

Recipe:
Stamps: Christmas Circle Printable Stamps - The Cutting Cafe
Paper: White; Real Red & Always Artichoke - SU; Acetate; Wassail DP - Basic Grey
Other: Red Grosgrain Ribbon; Circle Punches; Scallop Circle Punch; Green Spicia Pen; Pillow Box Template - The Cutting Cafe
