Christmas Tree Box

Did you see?? I'm over on A Blog Named Hero today, as part of their Dear Santa event! This week the theme has been gifts, so I created a little Christmas Tree Box to package a gift in.

I picked up this tree-shaped cardboard box at a craft store a while back and it's been begging me to decorate it! I began by coating it with gesso.

Then I painted it with some gorgeous Ranger Adirondack Paint Dabber in Pool. (I used a paint brush - I used the dabber because it's the pool paint I happened to have. A color I am utterly in love with these days.)

Then I got to work with lots of Hero Arts goodies. I stamped the pretty Pen & Ink Christmas Tree in Splash ink & trimmed. I also used a couple Hero Arts dies for the oval & background shape (cut out of more of that burlap paper I'm obsessed with!). "Enjoy the Season" comes from Banners & Messages, and I finished it off with a bunch of Studio Calico wood veneer stars - love those!!

I'm going to fill this bad boy with fudge and give it to someone. Not sure who. Although I hear Mary Dawn may want it... :-)

Now head on over and check out the rest of the awesome gifts they've shared on A Blog Named Hero! And stick around, their event will be continuing for the next couple weeks!
