A Christmas Makeover

Hello Everyone!

Today I’ve taken the Star shaped Box from the You’re a Star SVG collection and given it a Christmas makeover using a couple of elements from the White Christmas SVG collection.

This not only makes a pretty gift box but can also be kept and used as a trinket box long after Christmas is over.


These are the Cut Files I used:

From the You’re a Star SVG collection

I cut the Star Box Base, Lid and Layer 1 from Red Cardstock to create the Box.



I then cut this element from Layer 2 from some Tartan patterned paper.






From the White Christmas SVG collection

I cut this element from the Poinsettia Gift Tag Layer 1 three times from more Red Cardstock.






And I cut this element from the Robin Gift Tag Layer 1 three times from Green Cardstock.





These are the Materials I used:

  • Red and Green Cardstock
  • Tartan Patterned Paper
  • Distress Ink
  • Wet and Silicone Glue
  • Fibres, Artificial Berries & Stamen
  • Chunky Glitter

If you would like to watch along as I make this project, here’s a video showing the process:

Now, no makeover would be complete without a before and after picture would it?


I hope this encourages you to think about using the Cut Files in your stash in more than one way and use them for different occasions :)

    I LOVE THIS POST!!!!! Seriously, this kind of “different ways to use it” thinking is my favourite type of crafty conversation! Beautiful work on your Christmas version of the box. What an inspiring post, Bird!!

    Just beautiful! These are the tuts I need. Showing different ways to use files. Love it. Btw. I could not find the link you were talking about. Could you tell me where to find it?

    Thanks for everything.
