A "Traditional" Christmas Tree

This week we are showcasing products from our friends at Tombow to bring you tons of Christmas/Winter themed inspiration!

Join us all week long for Christmas gift ideas that you can easily create with  Authentique Paper and Tombow products!
********************

Hello! Loes here today to show you what I've created some awesome Tombow products and the "Tradition" collection from Authentique Paper.

If you know my work, you know that I am loving everything Kraft. The color is great and goes good with vintage papers. When I order stuff online, the packages always have kraft papers inside. I love to recycle, so I take the paper and use my iron to make them flat.

I drew a Christmas tree on my kraft paper and cut it out twice. I sewed the two pieces together with my sewing machine to create a dimensional Christmas tree!


 Than I decorated the edge with a glue pen from Tombow. You can write with it, make signs, make a painting, what ever you want! It's really a awesome tool! After that,  I used some embossing powder and my heat tool.


Next, I added a flower & some trim from Petaloo to embellish. 


 Then this beautiful burlap rose from Maya Road.


The element stickers from the Tradition collection work great with the power tabs from Tombow.


After I added each piece of paper, I used the Tombow Stamp Runner and again I used embossing powder and my heat tool. After I decorated my Christmas Tree I filled it with pillow stuffing. Then I put a wooden stick in the tree and put it in the little basket.


I hope I was able to inspire you to recycle some of  the extra packaging this holiday season and make a beautiful home decor piece! 


Authentique: Tradition collection 12 x 12 papers , element stickers


Tombow: glue pen, stamp runner, power tabs
