Christmas Embellishments Day 8 Christmas Trees

Christmas Tree Embellishments
by DT Taryn

Silver Ribbon Christmas Tree

Cut a piece of white cardstock to a rectangle, 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 "

Trim the corners to form a triangle

Apply silver stickles or glitter around the edges of the triangle.

Arrange 3 silver metallic leaves over the triangle

Make 4 knots out of the silver fibre ribbon, arrange them on the tree, and trim the edges

Apply rhinestones to the centres of the ribbon knots

Make a small bow for the top of the tree, and apply a large silver rhinestone.

Ric Rac Christmas Tree

Cut a rectangle of green patterned paper, 3 x 4.5"

Trim it to a triangle shape, by cutting off the corners

Cut a tree base from the scraps (reverse side)

Ink the edges using peeled paint distress ink (optional)

Using the grid marks on your cutting mat as a guide, apply strips of thin double sided tape at 1/4" intervals

Apply red velvet ric-rac along the strips of tape (one tree takes approx 40cm ric-rac)

Stitch around the edges and down the centre (optional)

Add a star/jewel/accent to the top of the tree. (I have used a large rhinestone mounted on a wooden button, that has been inked using fired brick distress ink)

Add strips of rhinestone chain (optional)

Concial Christmas Trees

Cut a piece of plain cardstock 2x2" square, and ink the edges.

Cut 3 concentric circles out of green patterned paper. (I have used approx 2 - 2 1/4" circles)

Cut each circle into 3rds (approximately)

Roll each piece gently to form a cone type shape, arrange the 3 pieces in the shape of a tree, and apply them to your square piece of cardstock using dimensional magic (hold it in place for 10seconds so that it sticks)

Decorate the tree using stickles / glitter and rhinestones.
