I love our Christmas tree. It holds ornaments made my tiny hands long ago. It holds ornaments that were gifts that I hold dear. I love the slow shift in light, from beautiful colors to glorious white. There is nothing I like more than to sit in our darkened family room and watch the beautiful lights of our tree. In honor of the magic of Christmas trees everywhere, from Charlie Brown's most humble tree to the beautiful tree at Rockefeller Center in NYC, I bring you this.
Tinsel & Twig Tag #4: The Magic of Christmas
To make the tree, cut 8 Christmas tree shapes out of 2 different shades of green cardstock. Fold all but one down the middle using a bone folder. Position the tree you didn't fold where you like it on the tag. Apply adhesive to one side of a folded tree and adhere to one side of the tree on the tag. Adhere one side of the next tree to the one you just placed on your tag. Continue to do this until you need to glue both sides of the last tree you add. Add pearls or bling. I used an old typewriter key as my base.
May the holiday season be full of magic for you, friends!
