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 :)
