Oh Christmas Tree!

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree how beautiful your branches ....... oops yes sorry that is me singing again .... I love singing the Christmas Carols even if I don't sing them very well hehe!

A few weeks ago SCS posted a number of Christmas themed tutorials, one of these tutorials was how to create these Paper Trees. As these seemed like something fun to do I decided to purchase a foam cone shape and create one myself.

I used the Holiday Thyme DP which may be last years DP in the US & Canada but to all the Aussie stampers down here it is the latest release ... go figure ha!

I found the gold embellishment at the top of my tree in my craft cupboard ... these decorated my Christmas crackers last year and I managed to rescue a few other everyone pulled them so at least one has now been recycled! I created the star using my George cricut cartridge.
Recipe: Papers: Cranberry Crisp & Holiday Thyme DP - Stampin' Up
Other: George Cricut Cartridge; Gold Embellishment
