Christmas Tree Ornament Gift Box Pattern
They are little Christmas tree gift box ornaments. They are made out of wallpaper sample book paper, a pom pom and a tiny bit of ribbon.
Here is how I developed the pattern.
I first took a piece of paper and made a cone. Then I just started cutting the bottom to mimic the ovals I saw in the pillow-pack pattern in Forms, Folds and Sizes.
I played with the pattern a bit and made a second sample.
Then I drew lines on the folds and scanned it into the computer.
I evened up all the lines and printed the pattern out.
(Click on the pattern to download and use at any size.)
To make the Christmas tree gift box ornaments I simply held the cut out pattern on top of the wallpaper sample page (I did this because in some cases I was being fussy about where the print on the paper fell on the pattern).
Then I folded back the side flap, applied glue and stuck it under the opposite side.
Then I folded up the two bottom flaps.
All that was left to do was glue a small loop into a pom pom and then the pom pom onto the tip of the tree.
Oh and then let's not forget to fill each tree with a little gift(I am using mine for jewelry)!
So make some fun little Christmas tree ornament gift boxes or get inspired to design your own!
