Christmas Tree Tin


  • BP-SP-CD1004 BellaPress Peppermint sampler paper pack

Place half of tin on Peppermint stripe paper and trace. Do the same with the polka dot paper. Cut 1/2 inch strip in Magenta cardstock and stamp Polka dot border in black versafine.

Stamp "cheer" dot, Snowflake Circle and Mini Trees in black. Color trees in green.

Cut 2.25x2.25 inch white cardstock, 2 3/8x2 3/8 inch black panel and 2 5/8x2 5/8 inch panel in magenta. Stamp Whimsical Tree Trio in black and color. Attach each panel together.

Attach paper panels and magenta paper strip onto tin and tree panel.

Add Crystal Lacquer on dots and trees and allow to dry.

You can use this to present a gift card, or handstamped cards in the tin. You can make "coupons" for your friends and family. Ideas include a coupon for homebaked cookies, a shoulder rub, breakfast in bed, a cup of cocoa, a lunch out, etc. Just use your creative imagination! Let me know what ideas you come up with.

your tin is beautiful! Can you tell me how you attach the paper to the tin? Is there a certain kind of glue you use? Thanks,

Thank you for your comment. I used the ATG 700 gun, available on the website . I made a post commenting on it on the Nov 11, 2008 called “Tips” on #3.

It is the best adhesive as it is very tacky and it can rub off your project if you want to remove it. After it sets for a few minutes, it is permanent. You can also roll it into a glue dot. It is also invisible under Vellum paper. You can also make it as narrow as you need by rubbing off the excess from layers narrower than the tape. It is an industrial quality machine and tape so it has a variety of applications that go beyond stamping. You can use for crafting, scrapbooking, and even gift wrapping. I have used it to repair small projects at home even.

Thanks for asking!
