Decorated Christmas Tree...........

Well here it is the Christmas Tree I will be taking to the Ringwood Paper Show on Sunday 2nd November, at the Leisure Centre - Entrance is only £2.50.....

I have seen lots of things on Blogs and Splitcoaststampers and I thought I would have a go and make some for my tree.

Most of my decorations are made using the punches! Guess which one I used the most???

Yep the Scallop Circle Punch.....Correct. Hee! Love it.

I used it to make the hanging chocolates, which are elizabeth shaw mint crisps. So quick and easy to make (when you have a production line going thanks girls:-))


The stamp in the centre is from Perfect Presents, in Real Red and Old Olive. The papers used on the whole tree is Dashing.......
This is retired but still available while stocks last. I would love to use the Holiday Treasures papers as well as my living room is similiar colours! Chocolate Chip sofa, Ruby Red sofa, Creamy Caramel carpet.....Hee! I am wearing Chocolate Chip, Perfect Plum and Pale Plum........ Has she gone completely mad You Ask?


The ornaments are also made by using the Scallop Circle punch, I used 8 circles folded them in half and glued them together, and between the last one I added some elastic cord from Stampin' UP. Some of them I added some pearls, beads from the Pretties Kit.
These are made using the large and small tag punch star and you can find the tutorial over at splitcoast stampers under resources.
The little boxes have some chocolates in and when my boys saw the tree this morning they asked if it was for them, bless them. Of Course. The beauty of these boxes is that they aren't glued closed and you can take the ribbon off and fold them flat ready for another Christmas. I did them for 12 days of Christmas so they can take it in turns opening them or sharing one every day. The tree is only 3M high so I couldn't make it into an Advent tree but it would look great on a 6M tree.

The box idea is from Irene the Germany Representative of UStamp, You can join these online classes for a fee, if you join tell them I sent you and for every 7 people you recommend they will give you a free class.

At the very top of the tree and there are 2 others further down, is the Snowflake which I saw yesterday on a fantastic video Monica had done. She is the UK Representative over at UStamp and you can visit her amazing Blog on the right.

Thanks for looking and listening me going slowly Mad!
