A Traditional Tree

Hello there!  Shellye with you today to share a little project from the
TRADITION COLLECTION

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 :)

  5. The tree is really pretty. I see it's sitting on a chair for display but it could be used as a decoration for the backs of chairs for "real". I have fabric covers on the backs and this could be attached for a different look. thanks for the idea.
