Christmas Tree Treat Box

Did you know that the Petal Cone die makes a great Christmas Tree? These will be cute to place beside each place setting on your Christmas table or just for special little treats for those special people in your life. I die cut two Petal Cones from Garden Green card stock and embossed them with the new Snow Burst embossing folder in the Holiday Mini- love this folder! I inked the edges and lightly inked over the embossed design with Garden Green ink. You can add little punched out circles to your tree if you'd like. Using 1/8" circle punch outs is time consuming, but cute :D ! 

 You'll want to add your treats inside the tree before you add the tree skirt. Close up the flaps on the Petal Cone after adding your treat or little gift inside. Die cut a circle with the Clear Circle die in Very Vanilla and another circle from the Scallop Circle die in Cherry Cobbler. Emboss the Very Vanilla with the embossing folder of choice and ink over it lightly with Crumb Cake ink. Adhere to the bottom of your Christmas Tree. Punch out or die cut two little stars from More Mustard and add the little star to the top attached to a toothpick. You'll want to trim the toothpick to make it shorter though.

You could also leave out the treats and just make a few of these for decoration around your house :). Have an awesome day today!


Colors used: Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
