Cardmaking, Essentials By Ellen

Christmas Tree Treat Boxes and Holiday Decor

You’ve already seen the Pyramid Box disguised as a witch hat and candy corn for Halloween but it makes the perfect Christmas tree, especially when hot foiled with the Tiny Stars Background! I loved making these boxes in different colours with different hot foils. They’d make wonderful decor for any room during the holiday season!

These boxes are so easy to assemble and can hold quite a bit of candy or other small toy. I can imagine them as an Advent Calendar! To make them look more like Christmas trees, I used the Essential Stars dies, and both glitter cardstock and foil cardstock to make the toppers.

To turn them into treat boxes or party favours, I simply created coordinating tags using the Farmhouse Tags dies and Tag It – Christmas stamp set. The easiest way to make a cohesive set with the same colours is to rotate all of the elements between tags so that each tag features the colours not represented on the box itself. Silver and gold string instantly glams up these tags!

I hope you’re inspired to use the Pyramid Box to create treat boxes or holiday decor and even decor that also doubles as last-minute treat boxes for surprise visitors during the holiday season! While you’re making the boxes, simply make extra Farmhouse Tags that you can pop on with a quick and easy glue dot like I did here.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have an amazing and crafty weekend!
