Roll Out The Christmas Trees!

WOHOO!  Another Blog Tour Begins!

This will be a first for me, posting 7 consecutive days in a row.  WAIT!  Oh No!  Don't faint!  Do need some water?  Get back in your chair, now, are you OK?  Good...let's get started then . . .

Since the theme is Holiday Madness, I decided to start out with something simple, but fun.   These little trees range from 5 inches to slightly more than 9 inches.  The Paper is from the Holiday Mini Catalog, page 33, Specialty Designer Series Paper - Candy Cane Christmas. 




I don't know if you can tell, but the red dots on the tallest tree have glittered centers.  This is part of the paper as you can see the bottom photo.  I just punched them out with the flower shape from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (Idea Book & Catalog [IB&C] page 201).  I glued them on with Mini Glue Dots (IB&C page 197).  The star (XL punch IB&C page 203) is made of Brushed Gold card stock (IB&C page 170) & the Snowflake (XL punch IB&C page 200) from Real Red card stock (page 166).  The ribbon is 1/8" Taffeta in Real Red, I used glue dots to hold down the 'curl' in strategic areas.  The 'garland' is actually only touching the paper in the back where it's held in place with Mini Glue Dots (don't you love those little things?)  It's the Silver Tinsel Trim from the Holiday Mini Catalog, page 21)

The photo below shows how what I did to get the little flowers....you can get a LOT of flowers from one piece...I barely used three rows with very, very, little waste - seriously, you can punch out EVERY full dot!  WOW!  I did curl the edges of the flowers too.




Hope you enjoyed this simple and quick project(s)  for you Holiday decorating.  Click the link below to move through the other RemARKable Demonstrator blogs until you get back home to me.  Watch for my next blog tomorrow!
