One of my sweet followers Mo and several other folks had asked for more details on the tree....Here goes...
The tree has 18 layers. It stands 17-inches tall. The paper collection I used was Tim Holtz Idea-ology Seasonal Paper Stash - Holidays Past...LOVE IT!!!
So it goes like this...Starting with the bottom and going upwards....
(3) Layers cut at 4-1/4" (The reason...Using a deep edge punch that is 1-inch)
(2) Layers 4"
(1) Layer 3-3/4
(1) Layer 3-1/2
(1) Layer 3-1/4
(1) Layer 3
(1) Layer 2-3/4
(1) Layer 2-1/2
(1) Layer 2-1/4
(1) Layer 2
(1) Layer 1-3/4
(1) Layer 1-1/2
Change punch to 1/2 inch punch
(1) Layer 1-1/2 (Again)
(1) Layer 1-1/4
(1) Layer 1
(1) Layer of single 12" piece set on end
Sizzix/Tim Holtz Snowflake Rosette
For the base, I used a 3-inch round paper mache box and covered it with a strip of the Tim Holtz paper. I then hot glued the bottom of the box to the bottom of the tree, centered.
The Base Piece
This is where I stood the last strip on end and glued it in place.
I don't know whether you can see the black chipboard between the two layers... But it's there.
Frantage- Stampendous Shaved Ice
Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitter
Art Glitter Glue
Mo, what I did with the glue and don't tell anybody, especially Dyan Reaveley, I used Dyan's pipettes and sucked the glue up into the pipette and squished glue onto the edges of the "limbs." Then basically I used the pipette to drizzle the glue over the tree. Next, I added the Shaved Ice and then went back over and sprinkled Tinsel Glitter over it in the wet areas.
That's it! Hope that helps y'all!
Thanks for coming back by!
