Deck the Halls Paper Tree - weeM29


My Paper Tree was created using Stampin' Up! decorative papers - Deck the Halls. It was created for the Wee Memories Challenge #29 - Free For All!
The cardstock base is SU Real Red. The red background dp and the branches of my tree are all from the SU Deck the Halls collection. You may be able to see, I punched the small ovals out with the punch on the left (samples on the bottom right folded in half). After I folded the ovals in half I used my 2 - Way Glue and glued the ends together. Then I started at the top with one and then 3.75" below that I started the bottom branches. The is no rhyme or reason to my placement. If you try this don't worry, no 2 trees look exactly alike in nature either. My tree is comprised of 42 ovals folded in half. You can see when I got to the second row from the very top I cut the ovals to resemble the upsweep of a tree. My trunk is a .75" piece of brown grosgrain ribbon. I added a piece of 1/8" wide Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon to the bottom portion of my card. I ramdomly placed the tiny perals.
I hope you like my little Tree.
