I started the season making paper poinsettias. I used a leaf shape from the Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge to make the petals I used the same shape in four different sizes.
I used a bamboo skewer to "draw" on the veins and a little flocking for the centers.
I glued them to clothes pins to attach them to gifts.
This was one of my harebrained ideas.
I was asked to decorate a benefit party.
I didn't have much budget, so I thought I could buy a
stack or two for $15-$20 (on sale) and make 100 paper trees.
The first 10 were not so bad, the next 90 was another story. I did get them all done. I used my gypsy to make a cut file for the cones and George and Basic shapes for the stars.
I had all different sizes, colors, and patterns.
They really did add some color to a very beige function hall.
I used wrapping paper to add a runner to the tables.
I had about seven trees grouped in the center of each table and the rest were scattered about next to some candle holders I dressed up with leftover paper.
Thanks for looking
