My Sheri Crafts #124

 It's almost that time of the year... my favorite holiday!  Christmas is just right around the corner and had managed to sneak up on us again.  We are doing a "Funky Christmas" theme for My Sheri Crafts this week.  Make any Christmas project using non-traditional Christmas colors

I'm sure you've seen these cute little Christmas trees made from papers before.  I've always wanted to make one of them before so I used this week's theme to do so.  I used coordinating double-sided papers from K&Company and Martha Stewart's scoring board to create the tree.

I made quite a few of those pinwheel flowers you see on the card and stacked them up until I had a good height I was satisfied with.  I used intervals of 0.5" scored on different widths of paper strips starting with 0.75" to 2.00" in height so that the base is around 4.00"

The tree stands at around 7.25" in height with the flower / star on top of it

Thanks for looking!

Now... it's your turn to create something spectacular and join us over at  My Sheri Crafts

Supplies used:

Papers: K&Compaany
Martha Stewart score board
Tons of lavender ink
Cricut cartridge: Artiste - rolled up flowers
Cricut cartridge: Holiday Cakes - "Happy Holidays"
