3D Box and Christmas Tags

3D Box and Christmas Tags

I’ve been so excited to share this little 3D Box and Christmas Tags with you. They have been sitting on my desk waiting patiently for me to shoot the video so you could create this right along with me.


This box could be used for many things but today I want to share how I created it to hold Tags.


3D Box of Tags, Festival of Trees, Stampin' Up!

When I was rummaging through my stamp cabinet I noticed I had not used the stamp set Festival of Trees once this Christmas Season.  This set was perfect for this project. This is also a bundle which means you can get a great price for the stamp set and the coordinating punch. Just click on the pictures and you can see it directly.

I used the Festival of Trees throughout the entire project and added a few embellishments.  You can see all the products  I used in the clickable links below.

Create It!

How about  you create along with me? See how quick and simple this 3D box is to create and I know you can come up with a ton of other uses for this box.

As I stated in the video I wanted to show you all of the tags so you can re-create these as well.  This would make a great gift for a teacher or friend.

Tips & Tricks

Because these tags are a bit bulky they did not all fit in my box.  Because of the added embellishments I maxed out at 3 tags in the box.

The Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Stitched Ribbon is a brand new ribbon coming out January 5th.  It’s a beautiful ribbon and easy to work with when making bows.

Here are each of the tags below:

It’s your turn.  I hope you enjoy the 3D box and the tags created for it.  I can’t wait to hear what you create.  Make sure to tell me.  I love when you share your creativity with me.

From the looks of Pinterest and many other galleries, we could guess that Festival of Trees is one of the more popular stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up!

Festival of Trees has a coordinating punch that makes your cardmaking FAST and fun.  Even better, a great card to create Christmas cards when you are creating a BUNCH!

That’s one of the reasons I love this set.  There are plenty of tree options.

You can have the real Christmas tree or make it more of a modern or even VINTAGE look.  Either way Stampin’ Up! gave plenty of options.

This card has lots of options too.  This was one of my club cards this month and we were working with a few new products. 

Decorative Masks

Quite possibly one of the least expensive things in the Stampin’ Up! idea book and catalog and they can create such a difference on any project. 

The decorative mask is essentially a stencil.  Place it over your cardstock, then using a sponge dauber and ink lightly press through the masked area to create a stunning background. 

For the card above I used the Hearts & Stars Decorative Mask with Whisper White ink.  Notice I kept the stencil close to the focal point of the card.  I just wanted a dab of stars.  I love the look it created. 

Keeping with the star theme texture emboss the Kraft Cardstock (in love with this cardstock!)  with the Lucky Stars Texture Embossing Folder.  WAHOO. Love how that all comes together.

The Holiday Catalog gives so many great ideas to embellish our projects.  Sequins, snowflakes, and don’t forget our glitter.  So many GREAT options!

Lastly, this is a photopolymer stamp set making 2 stamp stamping a breeze each and every time. 

If Festival of Tree’s is on  your wish list, get it today and start creating beautiful projects with this perfect set. 

Don’t forget the GREAT deals going on this week at Stampin’ Up! 

I’m packing up  the stamp room again  for a fun crafting weekend at my church.  2 days of crafting! It doesn’t get any better than this. 

Have a GREAT weekend.
