25 Days of Christmas: Day 6

Hi Everyone!

When I saw Kristina's card with the Christmas Tree made from Baker's Twine, I think I may have actually squealed out loud!! I thought it was positively the most adorable thing I'd ever seen. I loved it, loved it!! The fact that it was so easy to do made it all the more desirable to do. I, of course, ran right out to Michael's and bought some Baker's Twine. I tried to use as much as my own items for the cards; but I knew the baker's twine would be a useful purchase; and it was cheap! I wanted to use some fun paper and colors; and I loved the idea of pairing some pink with the green and white twine. I didn't have any red bling stickers so I just added a bit of red stickles to a few areas on the twine.
The other shiny pieces are from a package of stickers that I got from the dollar store. It's hard to see but some are clear and some are green. Be sure to visit Kristina's website so you can watch her video and get all the directions you need to make one of these oh so very cute Christmas trees!
