Fun Christmas Step by Step Layout & a Card by June Burtonwood

Christmas Spirit

Products USED:
  1. With Christmas fast approaching what better than a tree to embellish your layout.
  2. To create my tree, I used a ten pack of lightly inked flowers.
  3. Cut a triangle out of matching cardstock for the base (3 1/2" base, 5" high).
  4. Stamp 2 leaves with a music stamp for colour variation (or use darker coloured flowers).

Begin at the top with 3 petals cut from a flower, next row 4 petals, next 3 and 2 petals and so on. Cut into 2, 3 or 4 petals depending on what you need to fill the row. I attached the petals with strips of double sided tape. Every now and then put in darker petals. The petals overhang the sides and bottom for best effect. If there are any gaps poke in 2 petals. Finish with anything you like for baubles and the star at the top. Then attach your tree to your layout wherever you like.
