Make It Monday #225


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and die cut shaped box.

Thank you so much Ashley for this GREAT tutorial.
I mass produce most of what I make so I might not use this one a lot. But if you already have the dimensions figured out it might not be a lot of work to do this one.

Anyway, my creativity and desire have been on a BIG vacation. I am hoping this little effort and my Make-It-Market kit I will be getting next week will get me back on track!!!
Thanks to my generous family for helping buy that in honor of my husband. Al.

I chose the Christmas Tree from Tree Trimming Trio. I LOVE that tree.
I love the shape of the tree,a LOT!

I am VERY happy with how my box turned out!!!

I also got around to finally making a Christmas Tree Change Up box.
I also used another stamp from Tree Trimming Trio.


I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make the star work!
Seems pretty simple... NOT!
This is a prototype and not stamped perfectly...
I add the tag so they can be used as place cards.

I just glued the bottoms together and the first "scallop" on the bottom.
It is held together by the twine.
Any suggestions on a star for the top?
I am baffled.

Thank you for looking at my blog!


  1. First of all, so thankful that you got back in your craft room. Love your Christmas box! I want to make a candy corn one. The change up box is cute, but I got nothing to help. Love you!

  2. Oh what pretty Christmas Tree gift boxes! Great idea, Susan

  3. I love your little Christmas tree gift boxes, and most especially the one made with the Change Up die - the stamping goes so perfect on it! Erin did a video on how to put the whole box together and she includes the star :

  4. I missed your boxes , boy are these darling! Love the tree box from the meadow .

  5. This turned out AWESOME, Susan! I love this little tree box! Muah!
