Christmas Countdown - 3D Object

Today is April 25th, and that means
Christmas Countdown

This month we were challenged
with making a 3D object.

I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 to
make 2 little treat boxes today.

Here is a sneak peek:

This first box was made with the
Cone Box on page 63.
This was cut at 9", I used the
scoring tool to score the lines
before cutting.
I used Coordinations Glittter cardstock.

This was a fairly easy project.
I think I got it done in about an hour.
I embossed the tree with the
Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder.
I added different colored
gems for the decorations
on my Christmas Tree.
I added a topper made with ribbon.
The tag and sentiment
are from My Creative Time
Teeny Tag Greetings.
This box has a little loop at the top
so it would be great to fill with candy
an hang on your own tree!!

Although I am not happy with the way this
project came out, I am still
going to show it to you!!

This box was cut at 5.5" from page 47.
The paper is DCWV.

The phrase was cut at 1"

I could not get the extra snowflake piece
to line up properly!!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by today.

I love both of your boxes, Kathy!! The cone box tree is fabulous!! I am going to have to make one of those for Christmas this year!! I just love it!! And the snowflake box is just amazing as well!!

Regarding your question on which Spellbinders I would recommend, that is tough because I love them all!! I started out with the label dies...#4 and #11 and just loved them. I still use them quite a bit. I really love the dies that have beautiful edges like the Fleur De Lis, Lacy Doily dies and Floral Ovals. If I were starting out again, I would choose some of the label dies can use them for so many different things. And the shape dies are really great as well...I use the circle and square shapes quite a bit (it's easier than cutting them with my Cricut!!) I do a lot of my shopping at Joann online...they have a great selection and when they have them at 40 perfect off and free's a bargain!!

I hope this helps!! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact can email me as well at indymermaid(at)gmail(dot)com :)
