Christmas Tree Decoration

This Christamas tree decoration was described to me over the phone by my wonderful upline Anela Corbett. She had used the scalloped punch for hers, but I would imagine that it would look good created using a whole variety of the punches.
I made mine using the curly label punch.
1. Punch eight shapes out of the Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper.

2. Score them using the bone folder and a ruler. Then fold them in half.

3. Adhere one half of a punchie to another using a 2-Way Glue Pen or a SNAIL adhesive. Do that on four of the punchies. (I forgot when I did mine so had to pull it apart hence the photo showing six punchies stuck together).

4. Place a piece of taffeta ribbon down the centre and then continue gluing down your punchies.

5.When you have stuck them all down make a loop at the top with the ribbon using a piece of matching thread to tie it. At the bottom thread a bead from the pretties kit onto the taffeta ribbon. I find it easier to tie a piece to thread to the ribbon first and pull that through the bead first. You need a bit of brute force, but it does work!

I hope that you have fun making this.

The Curly Label Punch Bundle is part of this months specials. If you purchase this or a variety of the other items on the Christmas Gift-Giving Guide and total is $105 or more than you will receive the Scalloped Square Punch for free. What a great Christmas Present.
