Reminisce Christmas Tree

 

Ingredients:
Reminisce Christmas Addition
Brick Cardstock
Circle Maker
Foam Squares
All-Purpose Scissors

How to Create:
Use the Brick Cardstock as a base. Wrap it around the styrofoam cone and adhere.

Once the cardstock is adhered, cut off all extra paper with All-Purpose Scissors so the cardstock is flush with the styrofoam cone.

Using the Circle Maker, begin punching 1-1/2″ circles from various pieces of the Reminisce Christmas Additions. You should have approximately 55-60 circles total.

Using the Circle Maker, punch approximately (11) more 1-1/2″ circles from the Reminisce Christmas paper, leaving a 3/4″ straight edge on the bottom of each circle.

Peel 3 stickers from the sticker sheet (I chose the red “Merry Christmas”, “Tis The Season”, and “December 25″ stickers) and apply to red pattern paper. Use the 1-1/2″ Circle Maker to center over the sticker and punch to make them circular.

Starting at the bottom of the cardstock covered styrofoam, adhere the straight edge circles with Tape Runner adhesive, overlapping each circle by approximately 1/4″ to cover most of the cardstock base.

On the second row start using the full circles and begin the row in between 2 circles from the bottom row. Alternate circles randomly for a colorful effect throughout the tree.

Adhere the sticker circles near the center, but not all together.

Continue adhering circles until they come to the top of the cone. The top row of circles should go above the cone by 1/2”.

Free-hand cut (or trace) 2 stars from the red patterned paper. Adhere stars together using Foam Squares.

Place a straight pin in between the stars, securing with Foam Squares and stick into the top of the cone.

Finished Size: Approx. 13″
