Oct Paper Pumpkin – Christmas Tree

Today’s post was inspired by Pam Strobel at Stamp and Stretch.  I loved her idea of turning the pie boxes from October’s My Paper Pumpkin kit into a Christmas tree.  I love all aspects of Christmas, especially candle light, so I added a tea light to the bottom of my tree.

  • Pine branches stamped on the front and back of the box give it an authentic tree look.
  • Cutout stars allow the light to shine through.
  • A tea light inserted into a circle at the bottom of the box not only creates a stand for the tree, it also provides the light.

While it is hard to photograph a lighted image, thought I would at least give you an idea of how it looks.  It looks much better in real life.

I plan on grouping several of these together as part of this year’s Christmas decorations.

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy, and happy stamping.
