Challenge #23 – Christmas – not a card

For this challenge I decided to create a decorative box that can be set on a Christmas table, or possibly hung on a Christmas tree.  I have a very limited supply of Christmas design paper, and found this tutorial on how to use freezer paper – ironing gift wrapping paper, napkins, just about anything and making your own designer paper.

Once I decided on my wrapping paper that would be used, I tried the freezer paper technique and it worked.  I now can make my own designer paper for my projects.

I cut the pieces out after selecting paper for material type under the cutting options in SCAL3 (the scissors). The background design paper is printed out using my new high quality digital paper which I love, love, love.  All paper was applied to the box .

After cutting out 3 sets of the Poinsettia, I placed 2 sets along the edge of the box,

The third set of Poinsettias on the corner of the inside edge.  I placed yellow flat buttons in the center of each set.

The sentiment “Merry Christmas” was a free file from Silhouette Online Storewhich I print and cut and applied to a  background shadow of red and applied to the front of box.

And that’s my Christmas – Not a Card for this challenge over at Creative Cutting Challenge.  Please stop on by and join us in this challenge, would love to see what you create for Christmas – Not a Card.  Thank you for stopping by to visit with me, and hugs to all xoxo.
