An upcycled tin box of Christmas cards with Xyron


Upcycled-tin-box-of-Christmas-cards

Sometimes the best Christmas gifts are those that have to do with Christmas....
Like an upcycled tin box filled with Christmas cards! Great for a busy someone who can use your gift right away [or maybe hoard it till next year...*winks*]


Start by measuring patterned paper [American Crafts Peppermint Express - Santa Stripes] to fit your tin box [I upcycled a K & Company tin box.].


Run it through the Xyron 5" Creative Station for an even application of adhesive. Then adhere to tin box.


Adhere some washi tape [Doodlebug Designs Home for the Holidays] along the edges.


Layer some patterned papers [Crate Paper Bundled Up -Winter and American Crafts Peppermint Express - Dear Santa], a string of green sequins, red feather and trim [Maya Road].


Add a festive sticker [Doodlebug Designs Home for the Holidays] and bloom [Maya Road Antique Pearl Center Flowers]...


And you have a festive tin box!


Then add some CAS cards [Doodlebug Designs Home For the Holidays patterned papers and sticker, SRM Sticker and twine and Xyron mega runner] like this one..


And this one...[Doodlebug Home for the Holidays patterned paper and stickers, Imaginisce bling, Fiskars scallop edge punch, Xyron mega runner]


Maybe a horizontal one... [Doodlebug Designs Home for the Holidays patterned paper and sticker, Crate Paper Bundled Up - Snowmen, ribbon, Xyron Mega Runner]


One with a cute reindeer...[Doodlebug Home for the Holidays patterned paper and sticker, SRM sticker and twine, Imaginisce bling packXyron Mega Runner]


Or Christmas trees...[Doodlebug Designs patterned paper and sticker, Xyron Mega Runner]


Keep them fun but postage-friendly! :) [Doodlebug Designs patterned paper and sticker, Xyron Mega Runner, SRM sticker, Imaginisce bling pack]



Hope you've enjoyed my Upcycled tin box with Christmas card as part of 30 days of Holiday Project Ideas with Xyron. :)

So totally adorable and such a wonderful gift idea! Love the fact that a gift like this is completely useful for whoever is lucky enough to receive it. And love that the case is made from a recycled container. So beautifully decorated, too. Your idea to wrap the edges in washi tape is just brilliant. Such a great way to finish the design!
