Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree...

Man, does it feel weird to have the tune of a Christmas song in my head! Feels like Christmas was just last week, and now it's nearly 7 months away. It'll be here before we know it, that's for sure!
The reason I'm singing this Christmas tune is because our new challenge at Whimsical Designs is "Song Inspired." Looking at the Whimsical stamp sets, I saw this sentiment and thought it would be a perfect fit for the challenge!
This Christmas Tree box is a cut form the Silhouette store. I used DCWV brown and green cardstock to cut the pieces, and distressed the edges with Peeled Paint ink by Tim Holtz.

I embellished the top of the tree with pearls to act as ornaments and also some stickers from SRM Stickers to act as garland. Super easy and quick to make! I think I'll keep this idea in mind to use as Christmas gifts for my future students.

Our sponsor this week is 3 Girl Jam! One lucky winner who enters the challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate to their shop.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day. :)
