Thank you for coming up with this tutorial - I have made quite a few cakes-in-a-box but hadn't tackles the tree-in-a-box yet so this is a great help to get to the project itself. Hugs, Patti

I love love your work!!! WOW!!!!

Thanks for being such an inspiration and helping me step outside my box. I haven't tried the black craft yet but I am going to and will let you know.

Thanks again!!!

I really had a hard time with the tree. I finally accomplished it. Watched the video over and over, I knew I was missing something.
What inspired me to try the tree was your beautiful tree and box. Now I'll try that next. Thanks you so much for all your great ideas. The tree in the card would be good to learn too.

Gretchen, based on your project, I just ordered the Christmas tree die yesterday! I am wondering a couple of things:
1. I'm thinking about using 2-sided cardstock (wheeling a design or using background stamp), so is the reason you used the two-different papers on the main box for the weight?
2. Do you think instead of ribbon on the outside of the box I could use 1/4" strip of cardstock? I'd probably put a ribbon bow on the top but if I used the CS, I wouldn't have the ends to worry about on the bottom of the box.

THX for the great tutorial!


I just found your blog and am totally in love!! Thanks for the inspiration!
