Christmas Tree's project with Cheri

I love decorating for Christmas and the paper trees are such a cute addition to the festivities. I created three trees with different looks. To start I rolled a sheet of chipboard into a cone. For each tree I started my layers at the bottom. 

For the first tree I used the back side of the calendar paper - the red and white dots. I cut 1 1/2 inch strip, scalloped punched one side then cut slits between each scallop and gently rolled them. I adhered them to the cone about every inch. 

For the second tree I used the green and white side of the words paper. Using my wavy blade in my trimmer I cut strips every 1 1/2 and distressed the wavy side and then adhered the strips to the cone. 

For the third tree I punched circles from each of my papers from the collection and distressed the edges, then I just started layering them only gluing half of each circle so that the next circle could slide under the previous circle. 

Once I was complete I used some of the Trims from the collection to finish off the bottoms. 

For the tree on the Christmas card I used my Doodle Charms Cricut cartridge and turned the scalloped hearts upside down and distressed the edges. I used the Red Glitter Paper for the base of my card. I cut the outside border from the calendars paper in the 6x6 paper pad overlaying the green and white patterned paper. I then stamped small snowflakes and Santa in his sleigh. I cut the word "Wonder" out from the words paper and framed it in one of Zach's book plate's from the Blingage line. I added a gem from Miranda's gems to top off the tree. For a little glitz I went back and added some glitter to the tree and snowflakes and colored in the sleigh.

super quick and easy projects with great impact!
