Hi guys its me with my Dt post for
and its not Saturday LOL
my day has changed to Wednesdays so here it is a little midweek inspiration for your Christmas crafts
to make this super pretty Christmas tree
first i made a cone using tracing paper, then i stamped and embossed lots and lots of snowflakes using all 4 sizes once embossed i would recommend you give each one a single coat of acrylic medium or modge podge to seal because the next step can cause the embossing to crackle off, OK so once you have cut them all out as close to the design as possible, just take each one and scrunch it up in your hand, i know it goes against everything to take a perfect stamped embossed image and screw it up lol, but its worth it i promise.
then starting with the biggest size simply layer the snowflakes up and around the cone, i just used the collall quick dry tacky glue, works like a dream.
then i draped a ribbon to which beads had been attached and a few bows round and round like a garland.
the finishing touch is where the magic happens
I bought some battery operated tealight candles, and placed the cone over the top
as this whole thing is made from tracing paper you get a wonderful translucent light shinning through, so after dark it looks beautiful
i hope you like this and will give it a go
i would like to enter the following challenges
