Good Things Come in Small Packages

Beate Johns is a prolific stamper and template designer, and this week in the SCS Weekly she posted a tutorial for a triangle box. I enjoy traditional shapes, but I like that this one can be adjusted for size, giving you the option to create smaller versions than this 5" x 10" original.

Who wouldn't like to find this hanging on their door each day during the 12 days of Christmas or the 24 days before Christmas, for that matter?! Inexpensive, fast, and unique, they have the potential to bring a very fun, different twist to an Advent calendar or Christmas Countdown.

This container would also be fun to use as a place card for Thanksgiving. Fill with some sort of nuts or candy corn, and they're a nice take-home favor for your guests. The Haiku DSP is made for autumn and the festivities that come with it! This took me about 3 min., start to finish, so don't feel like deciding to make these is going to be a big undertaking.

If you'd like to order the designer paper to make these, please feel free to contact me! There's an email in my profile, or you can leave a comment. Add that special touch to your holidays by doing a little advance planning. You'll be glad you did!
