I was trying to put the washi tape on the bottom but could not get it straight at the bottom edge so I just put it down and folded over the edge which was just fine.
Took All is Calm Specialty DSP 2 inch strips and punched just the tops of the Tree punch, flipping it back and forth to minimize paper wastage. You need 3 pieces to make one tree. Score each into half vertically and put tape on the side you want to hide and tape the sides together to make a 3d shape tree (it can fold flat for mailing) Add a strip of Sahara Sand for the trunk of the tree.
Don't forget to decorate the envelope!
You can easily rip out a dozen of these in no time for your holiday needs...... Any holiday DSP with ink to match.

Emboss the bottom part of the bottle topper with the woodgrain to make the base.
The wreath part is really fun and I learned it at my upline Tami's gathering. Take a piece of paper towel (get one with as little texture as possible) and put it on a nonporous surface. I used a little tray but any flat surface will work- put little drops of refills in a ring shape to create your own custom inkpad - I used daffodil delight, pumpkin pie, old olive, Blackberry bliss. Ink the base wreath and stamp on Whisper white CS. (The pad can get muddy so stamp quick) Stamp the berry in Real Red then diecut with the matching framelit dies.
Hang on a bottle- wine, champagne, Olive Oil or whatever you are giving away!
Make the base red with Celebrate as sentiment in red and it would be perfect for the Holidays or even someone's birthday.
Make lots and give them away.....Lynda

It took a few hours of TV watching to put together the stars- How to put it together instructions.
My only recommendation is that you burnish the boxes where it seals well so it stays secure. I did use glue gun on some of them to really make a tight box. I bought an 18" round chipboard wreath from a local craft store with a coupon for a few bucks. I used liquid multi-mono adhesive, glue dots and lots of hot glue for this. This is how it looks from the side to show you the 3D aspect of it.
This is the detail on the right side of the wreath.
I would suggest that you lay the 5 biggest boxes around the wreath and secure that and then work the other boxes around them. Once I figured out where the boxes should go then, I added the decoration on top using the liquid glue and glue dots to adhere the wooden snowflakes and the sequins. It is hanging in my living room mantel and with the light shining on it, it is simply stunning.
Mind you, I am not complaining!
Thank you Stampin' Up for such great products and great value to boot. Since they are not boasting about it, I figured I should!

Their logo has this neon green color -so I used Green Galore (retired SU) and matched it with Night of Navy.
They also have this a pattern on the sides of their uniform, perfect for our Chevron border punch.
I downloaded the image from online, and used a pencil to draw it on paper and used the undefined stamp carving kit to carve out the image.
I stamped it three times using the versamark and embossed it clear to create a subtle image.

This uses a 6x6 piece of pumpkin pie CS and the box maker. Wrap a little strip of Color me Autumn DSP - I love the Indian corn of this one. I then slippe it off the box.I then took the Old Olive Two Tone Trim and stapled it across the top, then I pushed the loop to the other side to staple the other side.
I then untwisted the trim but leaving the center intact like a stem. I diecut the lttle leaf from the Fun Fall Framelit Dies and stamped the sentiment from Another Thank You photopolymer set. Because it is clear you can see exactly where you want to put the sentiment on the leaf. Or you can use the gel pen to write the recipient's name.
