  1. Tree Trunk: Cut out and assemble the drum per measurements in table above. Set the completed drum aside for later.
  2. Tree Top: Cut and assemble all five star boxes as per measurements in table above.  Stack on top of each other and tie together with ribbon/twine of your choice.  Cut and assemble the bow and a small button to the center.  Adhere on the
    ribbon knot with some hot glue.  Place the stacked boxes on top of the drum base.  (You could adhere the drum to the bottom of the largest box to make it more sturdy but I didn't find it necessary).
  3. Bow: Cut out as per measurements in table above and assemble as usual.  Embellish with a small button to finish it off.
  4. Card: Only cut out the pieces noted in the table above, no resizing required.  Adhere the large_star to the card_base and then tie a ribbon.  Adhere the large_star_bottom directly onto the small_star_bottom and then adhere over the ribbon with some pop dots or dimensional tape.  Add a matching button on top of the bow with some hot glue.

Design Tips

Chantel - SVGCuts Design Team

  • As you can't see the bottoms of the star boxes, use plain cardstock or craft paper for these parts and save your pretty paper for the bits that you can actually see when the tree is assembled.
  • You can mix up the set by making a different SVG Cuts card in coordinating papers and colors.  There are so many to choose from!
  • Depending on your paper choice, you can add some ink around the edges to give your project a vintage look.

This project would be perfect for the workplace.  The star cards are so quick and easy to make so you could whip up a bunch in no time.  Use the tree to decorate yourdesk or counter and then surprise your colleagues by giving them each their own card and star box filled with treats or a small gift just before Christmas.  Hope you enjoyed the project!
