Yesterday was a blast! I did manage to grab Mom and Cesar to join me in the studio to make the Archiver's Tree. It was tons of fun to get together and do a project. We even had more fun going back and watching the hour long video together. I believe I was too bossy! Go figure! Sorry! LOL! We got a little confused along the way, but we ended up with a tree no less....Like I said, it was just fun being with everyone!
Here is the first part...I haven't downloaded the second part, but will tonight sometime. Also, we never took a picture of the final tree! Good gravy on biscuits! Oh well! Maybe Mom will snap one for me.
Once I was alone in my sanctuary, I decided to do my own version of the tree. Here's what I did:
For all layers score the appropriate length to make 3 strips of that size and glue them together forming a single long piece. I used Tim Holtz new Seasonal Paper Stash- Holidays Past for the tree.
1. Cut 3 layers of 4-1/4 x 12 I punched all the paper edges with the Garden Gate Deep Edge Martha Stewart Punch-
2. Cut 2 Layers of 4 x 12
3. Then for each consecutive layer I came in a 1/4-inch making a single layer each.
4. Once I hit the top 3 layers my punch was too large and I switched to a 1/2-inch Martha Stewart Loops punch for the edges.
5. I die cut the top piece from Sizzix Sizzlits -Tim Holtz strip die Snowflake Rosettes and put together.
6. I stuck a corsage pin in the top of the tree and adhered the snowflake rosette to it.
7. Last, I drizzled the tree in white glitter glue and applied a mix of tinsel glitter and mica flakes.
Well, That's about it! Decorating the house for Christmas and working in my studio today so that's where I will be! LOL!
Have an awesome day!
