Folded Tree Box/Bag Holder

Here's a great box/bag holder perfect for your Christmas gift giving. You can find the directions here. I changed the punch on mine - I used the large oval punch for my handle, and the Tag Corner Punch instead of the corner rounder.

The Christmas Tree is made by folding the Dashing Designer Series Paper as follows:

Folded Tree Directions

  • You'll need 4 pieces of DSP cut 1 of each size 3"x 3", 2 1/2" x 2 1/2", 2" x 2" and 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"

Fold them all as follows

  • Fold in 1/2 open up
  • fold diagonal open
  • fold diagonal other way open up
  • lay flat - now fold in the sides so you have what looks like a triangle
  • fold left and right sides of the triangle in towards the middle
  • repeat with other pieces
  • stack on top of each other to form the tree
I used the Star Punch for the star and the 3/4" square for my tree trunk. I used the Double Vanilla Technique from the TJNL along with my Snow Burst set for the background, and added some glitter bling to my snowflakes. To balance out the bling - I added some to the handle and on my sentiment to resemble brads.

Don't forget the Designer Series Paper is on special this month - Buy 3 get 1 FREE! The Snow Burst set can only be ordered through November 30, email me today to place your order!

Here's a close up of the tree. Here's another card I made using the folded tree directions.
