A Papercrafter's Christmas!!!!

Today I want to show y'all two little Christmas ornaments I made using supplies from Flamingo Scraps and from my stash!!  The first is this Christmas tree, which can be free standing -- how cute would a little forest of these be -- or hung on your tree!

Rosette Tree

I used my Tim Holtz Rosette Dies to cut two large, two medium, and one small rosettes from this solid winter white side of Carta Bella Winter Fun paper.  I think it is pretty clear that these dies are two of my favorites as worn as they are!!  I cut the paper into two 6x12 pieces, ran one sheet through my xyron machine and adhered them together, then cut.  I wanted to make the parts of the tree sturdy so it would last more than one Christmas!

The Tim Holtz Dies can be special ordered through Flamingo Scraps!

The Carta Bella paper is from the Combination and/or the Paper Warehouse Boxes

I sprayed both sides of each rosette with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist

I used a Maya Road Wood Spool for the trunk
and round pearls from my stash to space the rosettes

I used white Prima Chalk Ink to stain the spool and a Maya Road
Pearl embellishment as a topper; I rolled the edges in wet adhesive and
then rolled them in some micro beads from my stash for a little bling --
glitter or even stickles would also work well

This tiny little ornament is as simple as can be!  

I used the small green tree from a Fancy Pants Mini Tree pack and the smaller of these adorable glass domes from Tim Holtz (each package has two each of two sizes)

I twisted off the wood base of the tree and stuck the wire stem into the cork stopper 

At just under two inches, this would be so sweet on a miniature tree, a Christmas tableaux, or even in a doll's house!
