Quick and Easy Stitched Triangle Christmas Trees

 Happy Tuesday-before-Christmas! I know I have been MIA the past couple of weeks and I do apologize. The demands of teaching in-person and online simultaneously at school have been pretty overwhelming the past while. It has been all I could do to get my lessons planned, posted, work marked and report cards done. Now that the much-needed Christmas break is finally here, I have time to catch my breath and catch up on my Stampin' Up! business. I feel so out of touch with all of you!

Before I get to today's project, I want to remind you that my January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue Designer Paper Share is now open for ordering. For details and ordering information, click the image below. Orders must be placed by January 4th, 2021.

Now on to today's quick and easy project...check out these adorable Christmas trees!

Christmas treat box

These little boxes are SO cute and easy to make. The larger one holds 4 Lindor chocolate truffles...perfect to set at each place for Christmas dinner. I made the smaller one so it doesn't open, but could easily be left unsealed to hold more treats. I decorated my boxes with Heartwarming Hugs Designer Paper and some gold foil die-cut stitched stars. The sentiment is from the Tree Angle stamp set, stamped in Real Red ink and trimmed with some Real Red Braided Linen Trim.

I posted a how-to video on my YouTube channel, including the measurements and scoring information. For you convenience, I'll post them here too:

Large box:

2-1/2" x 11-1/2" Pear Pizzazz card stock - with 2-1/2" side at the top, score at 1/4" on both long sides. Then rotate so that 11-1/2" side is at the top and score at: 1/2", 3" and 7-1/4"

You'll also need two of the largest isosceles triangles from the Stitched Triangles dies, cut from Pear Pizzazz card stock. I used the next-largest size die to cut the DSP layers. 

My banner piece is 7/8" x 3-1/2".

Small box: 

2" x 9-3/8" Pear Pizzazz card stock - with 2" side at the top, score at 1/4" on both long sides.
Then rotate so that the 9-3/8" side is at the top and score at: 1/4", 2-3/8" and 5-7/8"

I used the second-largest isosceles triangle die for this smaller box.

Check out the how-to in this video:

Have a wonderful week and a very merry Christmas!
