Christmas Tree Re-visited!

Hello, today I am revisiting an old project that  I did way back in 2010 :D  Tando has been doing a lot of retail shows lately and there has been a lot of interest in the CHRISTMAS TREE BOOK.  It has 4 pages of shaped chipboard and stands at 24cm high.  It can be a freestanding piece as I have done here or made into a lovely book full of Christmas Memories.

*Please bear in mind this was decorated before we had the lovely Tando Mini's to play with and if I did this now they would be included!*

Each page has been covered with patterned paper with a layer of gesso to dull down the colours a little.  Snow effect paste & glitter applies round the edges.  Then the book was put together with a Bind It All.

Page 1
I hand cut 2 trees in 2 sizes from green card and attached to the centre 'fold', adding a red pot.  The tree was decorated with tiny stamped, coloured & cut out parcels and gems.  I wrapped some tiny Christmas Lights around it to add some more dimension and added a quote.

Page 2
 The snowman has been made from felt, with  a fabric scarf.  Punched out snowflakes and a quote have been added.

Page 3
A pretty Tando REINDEER SMALL RUNNING has been painted and added to die-cut trees, along with a few teensy white pom-poms and another quote.

Page 4
I made little fabric stockings with the felt tops and glued them on.  Then teensy pom-poms were added to the toes.  A stamped Father Christmas was coloured, cut out & added to the page, along with the quote.  Here is the book as it comes to you...

Lots of dimension going on with this piece and it looks lovely on the Christmas table :D  I have used a lot of fabric and stamping here to decorate it but why don't you go and take a look at our Christmas Section where you will find mini stocking, parcels, snowflakes etc to decorate yours!

Thank you for looking today, HUgs xxx

If they show these photos or the actual piece, there's little wonder that there's renewed interest in it! xx
