Time to Trim the Tree!





Are you ready to trim the tree?
Here I used Sunflower Rumple Ribbon, some cord and a star pin
to stop my tree.


I created this three dimensional tree using three 6" squares of card stock.
1" Glue Lines ® from Glue Dots ® work well to secure your layers.



I cut Pop Up Glue Dots ® to prop up the ornaments.
To get a little texture and interest, try rocking and rolling your solid stamps
in a couple of different shades of your hue.  


I used Pearl Pens to add bling to my ornaments.  With a steady hand, you can embellish those white spaces.
Just be sure to let your pieces dry completely before picking them up!

I used round velcro dot to secure this tree. So, when Christmas is over, I can easily fold this decoration
flat and use it again and again for years to come.




Check out some of the fabulous samples made by our talented DT in the thumbnails below.
