Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
I’ve shown you a few diffrent wire work trees I’ve made during the last few months, such as in the blog post – here.
This time I decided to gift it in a wooden box which I bought from The Works.
Not flat, but upright like this.
I won’t go through all the stages of creation this time, as I’ve gone through the adding stone chips and gwisting in previous posts. I’ll just say that I used – thin copper wire, Amazonite stone chip beads, battery opperated lights, stone, black and green cardstock, glue pen, silver foiling.
No decoration on the outside of the box because it won’t be seen when the box is opened to display the tree. The inside was covered with black cardstock, putting some dots of glue around the inside right which were then covered with foiling to represent stars. I also glued and foiled a quarter circle of cardstock which was stuck top right of the box as a moon just in view. I printed out a verse from the creation story in the Bible and stuck it the other side from the tree.
So when opened to be displayed it looks like this.
You may be wondering why the green cardstock at the bottom right is curled outwards.
It’s because the bottom compartment needs to be opened so that the switch for the lights can be switched on.
Because this time I haven’t put the lights in the top to shine down on the tree, but rather I’ve wound it up the tree trunk and woven and twisted it around and between the branches of the tree.
So this is what it looks like when displayed with the lights on.

You can see the cards I’ve made using design sheets from CUP in my “Crafter Showcase Area” on Craftsuprint.com – here
(Just scroll down past the top boxes to see the cards.
(Thank you for reading this blog post. I hope you like what you’ve seen and read – You should find a box below where you can leave a comment if you feel like it – but due to the fact that, like many I’m sure, I’ve had some problems with Spam/advertising posts that are absolutely nothing to do with the content of my blog, I now moderate all comments before they go live. Genuine comments will go live when I’ve checked through the list – usually a couple of times a day.)
(Thank you to every body who’s left comments on my previous blog posts. I really do appreciate them all.)
If you can’t see the comment box then there should be a link that says “Responses” and clicking on that will bring up the box
