Welcome to my new series - Christmas in July! I will be focusing all month long on Christmas, creating cards, gift boxes & bags, tags and more all during the month of July. Since Christmas 2015 falls on a Friday this year, I will be posting this new series on Friday afternoons.
To kick off my first Christmas in July post, here is my first project - my Festival of Trees Gift Box. You can download the printable tutorial here for complete assembly instructions.
This fun little gift box will hold a small gift - such as a small piece of jewelry or a sweet treat. Create a cute little handmade stocking-stuffer that your loved one will adore.
