1. Place the long side of the Basic Black cardstock along the top of the paper trimmer and score at 2 5/8”, 5 ¼”, 7 7/8”. And 10 ½”.

2. Turn the BB cardstock so the short end is at the top and score at 2”.

3. Place the other long side at the 3/8” mark on the other side of the paper trimmer track and mark the middle of each 2 5/8” section with a sharp pencil through the track. See photo 1 & 2.

4. Place the ‘tree’ die in the center of the first panel with the top of the die at the pencil mark and run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. Repeat with the other three panels.

5. Use the paper snips to cut from the bottom edge up to the 2” horizontal score line along the vertical score lines. Trim off the 1/4” section below the 2” score line and cut a slight angle on the rest of the 1/4” section. See the photo below.

6. Use the frame to cut 4 panels from the cardstock vellum.

7. Stamp each of the single children on a vellum panel with Memento ink. Dry ink with a low setting on the Heat tool. If the image is not solidly black, fill in areas with the Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blend. With the stamped side up, glue to the inside of the black cardstock with liquid glue covering the openings. The unstamped side of the vellum will be to the outside of the box.

8. Cut 4 of the tree die combined with the frame from the Mango Melody cardstock. Use the paper snips to cut off the branches leaving just a narrow frame. Glue these to the right side of the box.

9. Now fold on the score lines and burnish with the bone folder. Apply liquid glue to the ¼” flap and close the sides of the box. Allow the glue to dry, then close the bottom.

10. Stamp the greeting on a scrap of Basic White cardstock and cut it out with the label die. Punch a hole in one corner with the Take Your Pick and thread a length of Linen thread through the hole. Tie a knot in the thread and adhere the knot to the top corner of the box with a mini glue dot.

11. Use the Dark Pumpkin Pie blend to color about 6 inches of the White ¼” crinkled seam binding.

12. Tie an overhand knot in the seam binding and adhere to the corner over the Linen thread knot with another mini glue dot.


Put a flameless tealight in the box to use as a décor item as shown or fill a small cellophane bag with candy and put it in the box.
