Christmas in July Project!

Hello eveyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday. My Daughter and I had fun today in the easy set pool. We been spending alot of time in the pool trying to keep cool. My Daughter loves to swim. Here is my Christmas in July project. I always make a Christmas project in July. This is the first time making the Christmas tree box on Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge. I will be making alot of these for Christmas to give to my friends and Teachers at my daughter's school! I really like this box, because it can be used as a Christmas tree ornament. To make the box I used the fit to page button on 8 1/2 by 11 in cardstock. I used the blackout Creative Feature key with holes so I could tie ribbon through hole to hang on Christmas tree. If you want to know how I made the paper rosettes on Christmas tree box here is the tutorial link. I used a buttons and a gems for center of this rosettes.
Here is a side view of Christmas Tree box. The rosettes are very easy to make! Give them a try you will enjoy making them. Click any photo to enlarge.
Have a wonderful and blessed week everyone!

Cartridge used:
