I decorated my box with Tim Holtz's Mini Snowflake Rosettes die cut from POW glitter paper and the swirls and bits are die cut from Tim Holtz's Festive Greenery Decorative Strip.
After die cutting my box pieces, I inked the edges before assembling the box.
I couldn't stop at making one, so here's my next one:
Tim Holtz Mini Poinsettia movers and shapers. After die cutting I inked the edges, and attached the two pieces with a brad (I did two flowers). I also die cut the cardinal from this die out of red cardstock and coated it with Rock Candy Crackle paint. I used the rest of my greenery from the Festive Greenery Decorative Strip.
These were so simple and fun to make, I think I'm going to make these for my dinner table at Christmas with each person's name on it and a treat inside!
Hope you enjoyed my tutorial, thanks for stopping by!
