I was so thrilled to have been asked to participate in
Crazy Christmas Crafter Event.This is what I made for her site last week.
I hope you like it…
GIFT BOX CHRISTMAS TREE
and what’s even better is I had all the supplies at home
and didn’t have to buy any of it (SCORE!)
Even if you do not have the supplies lying around your house like I do,
everything can be bought for about $10-$15 – not too bad.
Here is what you’ll need…
-Gift Boxes-Spray Paint-Vinyl Dots or Paint-Cardstock-Scissors
-Hot Glue Gun
(I have Microsoft Word – Go to Insert – Shapes).
4. Trace onto cardstock several times and cut out.
5. Lay out scallops onto a sheet. I placed mine on adhesive so I could apply mod podge easier. Distress edges with stamp pad if desired. Apply thin layer of mod podge and add glitter. Let dry. Add thin layer of Polyurethane to help glitter stay on. Let dry.
8. Make paper accordion flowers, by cutting out strips of paper (I got my vintage sheet music from Graphics Fairy). Depending on how large you want your circle to be, you will cut the strips half that width. For example, if you want the accordion circles to be 2 inches, you will need TWO 1 inch strips. Zig Zag back and forth. Hot glue ends and hot glue the other ends so it forms a circle. Invert in and hot glue centers.
A Fun, Whimsical Christmas Tree made from Gift Boxes!
