Christmas

Ribbon Christmas Tree

Morning Stampers,

I am hosting Christmas this year, so it’s well and truly time for me to start getting organised with thinking about my table decorations. 

Last night, once the kids were in bed, I sat up to make this ribbon Christmas tree!

Ribbon Christmas Tree

I used the ribbons in the 2013-14 In Colours: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple & Midnight Muse.

I cut the ribbon in lengths of 10cm each and used a pin to attach it to a cone.

For the top of the tree, I wasn’t sure how to finish it off, but ended up making a small paper rose and adhering it to the very top of the tree.

What do you think?

Have a wonderful Sunday all, as I am off to make some more Christmas decorations!

Happy Stamping,

Kate
