J&C Creations - Christmas Tree Decorations!

Good Morning!
This week at J&C CREATIONS BLOG we shall be sharing some home-made Christmas Tree Decorations for you all to try! I'm starting this off with these cute little Tree and Snowflake Decorations. The glittered Snowflakes are from a pack that I got from my local Range store, however I'm sure any home & garden shop near you will also have them.

To create these decorations it would probably be a lot quicker if you already have a Christmas Tree die, but seeing I don't I had to improvise and instead traced round a Cookie Cutter! So to start off with trace round a cutter twice (or simply die-cut) on a piece of corrugated cardboard.


Repeat this on the reverse of 2 different patterned design papers and cut out, cut in half and then glue onto the tree's. Add a strip of Tinsel Twine down the centre to cover the join, add some little Pom Pom's and finish by cutting a hole through the top and threading through some ribbon.


Next take your tree's and cover with Glossy Accents on the reverse, grab your glittered snowflakes and glue the tree's into the centre. Embellish with Dew Drops and some Stickles around the edge of the tree's with the lighter Design Paper on.


Simply leave the decorations to dry and once they have ... put them on your Christmas Tree!
