A Mixed Bunch Christmas Tree
You will need:
Blossom Punch , Mixed Bunch Stamp Set, Gumball Green CS and Ink, glue gun, a Paper Cone and scissors.
I used a paper cone because the Styrofoam melts with the glue gun and its just messy and could get out of shape. I used 2 1/2 pieces of CS and started stamping the blossom with the 4 strands of petals with the dots. After punching them out I cut 2 petals at a time with some single ones and started gluing round and round, up the cone. With only one glue gun burn, I did well……LOL! when I got to the top I cut only 2 petals out and glued one on top of another to end with 3 as a mini cone, then glued it on top!
tips: I held each petal a few seconds to keep it in place. As I went around the cone I also filled in with single petals so it would look fuller with no gaps and seeing the cone behind it. I also took the ink pad and smeared in over the cone so you would not see brown behind it.
I like how this came out, for now. I’m still not sure if I “dress” it up with some bling.
