Christmas Treats Box

This is a little box we made at a workshop the other night.
Real Red & Old Olive cardstock and Stampin' Ink
Scallop Circle Punch
1 3/8" punch
1 1/4" punch
1" punch
Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon
Hole punch (office type)

To make the box, almost but not quite fold an A5 card horizontally, and pinch a little crease at the centre of each long side. Open out the card and almost fold it long-ways, again pinching a crease, this time on each short side. Open out and score from the creases to form a diamond shape, and then score across the middle of the card from long side to long side. You should have a diamond with a line across the centre. Fold the triangles inside and punch a hole on the short side of each of the four triangles. Thread a ribbon through the holes and there you have a cute easy box for Christmas gifts!

Trendy Trees Spring

This is a card using theTrendy Trees stamp set, this time in Spring colours. In the past I've only ever used this set with Autumn colours, but I love the combination of these colours:

Kiwi Kiss
Cameo Coral
Basic Gray
Pirouette Pink
Whisper White

and a clean simple but cute look. Lots of fun.
