Tiny Treat Box Ornaments - Kre8tors Holiday Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Kre8tors Holiday Blog Hop!

I am Ann Krucek from Ohio, USA -  

I am joining a wonderful group of international Stampin' Up! demonstrators to show off our 

holiday creations.

Where I live, we get a lot of snow in the winter and we are always wishing for a white Christmas!
I made some ornaments out of the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes with some winter scenes.
These are pretty easy to make, although complicated to explain!!
I hope I did a decent job here.

Let's start with the simpler one made from the Snow Front Stamp Set :

  • make up the Clear Tiny Treat box - position the box with the top full flap of the box off to your right and the short flaps - one up and one down on the table.
  • hopefully this photo will help:
  • I trimmed one side of the flap just a 1/4" shorter so that I could get my hole punch into the line along the edge of the flap and the side of the box.  Punch a small hole in the middle - this will be where you attach the thread or twine you use to hang your ornament.
  • Cut a piece of  Seaside Spray Cardstock to just a hair under 2" X 4" and score it in half at 2", fold and this will be the two sides of your ornament.
  • cut 3 pieces of Whisper White Cardstock 2 1/2" by 2 1/2 "  and score on two sides 3/8"  in turn and 3/8" in so that will make your flaps to attach your pieces to the sides.  Cut on the line of the corner so that you can fold your flaps under (see next photo!) do this to each of the three pieces of cardstock.  
  • turn your paper so that the point of your score marks are on the bottom.  This will give you a better idea of the direction you should stamp your images. 
  • The first image that will be in the front should be stamped the lowest on the diamond  shape, then the middle images a little bit higher on your second piece of cardstock and the back about half way up, depending on how big your images are on your third piece of cardstock. It should not exceed 2 1/2" in the middle and less to the outside edges.
  • Fussy cut around the top of the images. (I had just started this one - fussy cut all the way around the top!) Do any coloring you may want to do - I colored in my cabin with  Soft Suede Stampin' blends.
  • fold your flaps under on along your score lines,  using a small amount of glue on the flap, place in the corner of your Seaside Spray sides.  See placement of each layer in photo below. 
  • now just tuck that whole piece into your clear box.  
  • Place a loop of linen thread or baker's twine through the hole you punched and tie the knot several times so that it cannot pull through your hole.  
  • Add some fake snow!!
  • Close up your box and tie a ribbon around your hanger.
    Here are the supplies I used for this one:

for the second one - I just added a little bit more to it!

I cut a scalloped square from Seaside Spray Cardstock and a square from the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper - adhered those two together - then cut a 2" out of the middle of that leaving just a narrow frame.  I fit this around my box when I had my ornament complete.  Then added a tag and some snowflakes to a bigger bow.  
Here are the supplies I used for this one:

I hope you liked these ornaments!
