Oh Christmas Tree

SORRY! This project has been removed for publication in the Paper Crafts special issue, Holiday Cards & More 2009.

I bet you are wondering where the tree is!? Its in the bucket!! I found this darling little Grow-Your-Own Christmas tree bucket at the $1 spot at Target. Could it be any cuter?
I grabbed my JustRite Christmas ensemble and it fit perfectly over the top of the bucket. So, using the Harmony Classic Circle Stamper III handle and my Brayon font, I spelled out Oh Christmas Tree in a circle. I didn't know that the font letters could fit in the ring-wahoo!

I am going to start making a list on the right side of my blog that contains the Nestabilities sizes that work for each Just Rite set. I started putting post-it notes in my boxes, but I think I will start the reference for everyone else to be able to use. (let me know if that works well for you or not)
For the Christmas Ensemble, the Large Circles worked the best. The 2nd one down worked for the outside and the 4th one down worked for the inside. And I did make an actual ring with the Oh Christmas Tree, but it didn't work for my project, but the letters fit perfectly (using those 2 circles).


Here is the kit before embellishement. I took the cover off so you could see.

It came with instructions on the inside of the wrapper. I just cut them out and placed them on the inside of the cover I created. And it fit so perfectly, that I was able to just pull the handle up to keep it in place!! Yay! I love it when a plan comes together!!
