I am the seventh stop.
Here is the entire list of stops for day 1:
Nana @ My Crafting Channel
Hi everyone. I hope you are enjoying the hop. You should have come from Millie at Crafting with Creative M, if not, and you would like to hop along then start off at Nana at My Crafting Channel.
I have been wanting to make one of these trees for ages. For those of you who are CTMH consultants, I got my inspiration from the new Holiday Idea book. However, as I don't have the cartridge that cuts these, I had to work out the measurements etc. So 21 rosettes later and all of varying sizes ranging from 6" across, right down to the very top of 1" across :-)
After working out how long and wide each piece of paper needed to be to make each rosette, I went from making one of each layer to two, in order to get the height I wanted.
The silver snowflakes are little holographic ones that I have had in my stash for years. The satin cream snow flakes were cut on my Silhouette Cameo and are from Designs on Cloud 9 and called Snowflakes Galore. I also ran these snowflakes through my Cuttlebug and using the Swiss Dots folder.
The papers I used are from a DCWV cardstock stack called Christmas Made. It's a wonderful stack of fabulous colours and foils. I inked all the outer edges of each rosette with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink, before forming the rosettes.
For the very top of the tree, and had this pre-made die cut in my stash. I used a cocktail stick on the back and then sandwiched this with some red paper to finish off the back. Added a bit of ribbon and some holographic snowflakes, to finish of the sign.
For the bottom, I had bought this lovely sparkly burlap and had a little red container that was the perfect size for my base. I wrapped the container in the burlap and then added more ribbon and a holographic snowflake to finish it off.
So there you have it, a decoration for my buffet and I might even put it on the table on Christmas day :-)
Now hop on over to Kathy at 3 Spoiled Dogs and a Cricut and continue the hop to see what the others have for your enjoyment.
