Be still my heart: PINK bottle brush Christmas trees! When I saw these trees I knew just what to do with them: make a little kitschy Christmas scene. The pink tree looks great with my favorite color combo of turquoise and red, and of course I had to line the box opening with some pink pom poms for extra kitsch. A little turquoise deer I had got a new set of eyes (spot of black paint) and a shiny red nose (tiny red crystal). I tied a little bit of baker's twine around his neck to make him dapper, and used a few layers of foam tape to attach him to the back of the box.


I chose a red and white striped paper for the top and bottom of the slide out box because they reminded me of a candy cane.


Even though the box is nice and deep, I used scissors to flatten out the back of the tree a little so it fit inside better. Here's a little better idea of the inside color (that deep box is difficult to photograph well!)


Just for fun, I put a jolly little Santa on the back.


Fa la la!

Super cute!  I am not a pink fan - but I love how it looks with the blue and white.

Awesome little box!  That pink frosted tree is lovely and the little deer is adorable.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).
