Hello there! Shellye with you today to share a little project from the
I purchased this chipboard tree from Hobby Lobby. It's 11" high and of a nice, thick
nature...perfect to hang on a door or wall or attach to a wreath.
The chipboard is about 1/2" in thickness, so I painted the back and sides with a
dark red acrylic paint. Next, I traced the shape onto the Peace paper, cut out and then glued to the front of the tree. I inked the edges with a scruffy walnut ink pad.
Now for the decorating! I fussy cut one of the pretty 'postcard' style motifs from the Enhancements paper and layered it over two large snowflakes that I punched from the slate blue background from the 6X6 paper pad. Punched flowers, leaves and banners were also added. A couple of the sentiment stickers from Elements sticker sheet were tucked in amongst the flowers.
Inexpensive chipboard shapes can easily be turned into beautiful gifts!
I also have a few different shaped chipboard ornaments on my list to make this year...
I hope you find a fun way to create with this gorgeous collection :)
