ATB Christmas Boxes

I love the way these Christmas Boxes came out! 

If I do say so myself!

The boxes are a yearly gift.   My girls have grown and everything they ask for seems to be little. So I decided to start giving gifts in boxes that could be displayed year after year. This is like a 2 for 1.


·        Eileen Hull/Sizzix Scoreboard XL Die-Blocks/Cubes 3D
·         Glue Dots® 1” Glue Lines
·        Glue Dots® Micro (brads)
·         Sizzix Little Sizzles 6” X 13” Matboard White
·         Tim Holtz Paper Stash-Merriment
·         Tim Holtz idea-ology Collection Remnant Rubs Numbers
·         Tim Holtz Idea-ology Collection Hitch Fasteners
·         Tim Holtz Idea-ology Clock Keys
·         Left over red trim
·         Misc. brads
·         Red embroidery thread DMC
·         Small Misc. manila tag
·         Any snowflake stamp
·         Wendy Vecchi Red Geranium Archival ink


1.       Cut boxes using Eileen Hull/Sizzix Scoreboard XL Die-Blocks/Cubes 3D and matboard
2.       Using Glue Dots® 1” Glue lines adhere boxes together
       (this in my opinion, is the best adhesive for this step)
3.       Cut paper to fit each box and adhere
      (6 pieces are needed for each box)
4.       Determine where Hitch Fasteners and Clock key will go and poke a small hole
       and attach each using the screws provided
5.       Adhere trim, add misc. brads and Rub ons
     (I cut the tabs off of the brads and used Glue Dots® Micro to adhere them to the box)
6.      Stamp the tag and tie with red embroidery thread

Make sure you stop by Eileen Hull blog as she is sharing fun projects all month long!
