For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11

ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #182
This week the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge Team challenges YOU to a an Alternate Fold Challenge (other than a traditional side or top fold).
Project DetailsInstead of making a card with a fancy or alternative fold, I opted for something a bit different. . .a tea light gift set. I started with making a box for tags and then saw this clever pattern for a folding tree (SplitCoast Stampers Tutorials) and decided that's what the box would hold. Once the tree is disassembled and folded flat, the card layers on top, followed by the insert with the angled "Merry Christmas" and topped with the tea light.
For assembly, everything is removed from the box, which is turned upside down. Then, the white panel is inserted into the card and both are placed a top the box. The card then becomes the "skirt" and platform for the tree, beginning with the tea light "trunk" upon which the tree rests, followed by the topper (two brads glued together on a toothpick.) It all came together well, thanks to the ODBD's beautiful paper, stamps and dies!
