The first is a tree made with cardstock Mbossibilities, Garden delights folder, paint or inks, piece of wire or lolly stick, ribbons, PVA glue and embellishments, and something to stand the tree into.
Take the thick wire or lolly stick and glue alternate back then front, the strips under/over the wire and overlap them as your doing it.
When you feel your tree is big enough for your project, you MUST leave this to dry overnight.
You then take a ruler and mark/measure equidistant from each side of the wire 2 cms or if you want a more chunky tree make the bottom longer. Then draw a pencil line from the bottom of the tree to the top where the wire is making a triangle. Draw a line then cut the line on each side. You now have it looking like a tree.
The left over bits, cut into triangles and you can use these on cards.
Paint and decorate your tree. I chose gold cosmic shimmer paint then added some fluffy red ribbon and a string of beads. Go to town and put on what you like.
I placed the tree into some tissue paper in the painted plant pot (from hobbycraft) and covered with artificial moss (used for artificial flowers).
