Wow, I have really neglected my Blog in the last couple of months. I’m guessing everyone has been as busy as I have, and nobody has noticed!
I have been having so much fun with my Christmas crafting! Today, I’m wishing you a Merry Christmas with a free file that you can use for last minute embellishments. I used it today to decorate cookie boxes that I cut earlier in the year. It sure was nice to be able to pull out these pre-cut boxes. I have been storing them flat since way back in April. The box file is from Dana at http://svgmtcfiles.blogspot.com/. I originally got the file on the MTC Forum, but Dana has generously posted it on her blog for the holiday season. I was so happy with how easy it was to assemble these boxes. This is a really well designed file. Thanks, Dana!
Here is a photo of the boxes, with my tree file, which is my share for today.

I cut everything with my Black Cat Cougar. The bases are just simple rounded rectangles. I embossed them with my Big Kick and my favorite Cuttlebug folder. After embossing, I did a little sanding with some fine grit sand paper. After attaching the layers, I lightly inked the edges of the rectangles. I glued on the trees and trunks, I added a little bling to the tree tops! I’m not usually big on the bling, but I like it here. (and I have to use all the rhinestones I recently bought at the dollar store and Michael's!)
Now I can’t wait to find time to make some gift tags using this tree file! It will have to go on my to-do list for next year, as I am pretty much out of time this year.
I am wishing you all the joys of the season, and hope that you find many peaceful moments in the New Year.
