~*~ Holiday Blog Hop ~*~

Welcome to the Paper Secrets Holiday Blog Hop.


I made a couple of things to share with you today.

I created this lovely paper tree by punching a LOT of 1 1/4" circles of Mistletoe Paper, then used pearl floral pins to secure them in rows to a styrofoam cone.  As I neared the top, I had to use some adhesive so that they did not flare out, but sit in the cone shape.  At the top, I stamped 3 stars and adhered them to the top of the cone. 
Supplies:
Styrofoam cone
Pearl Floral Pins
CTMH Mistletoe level 2 paper
CTMH Mistletoe Creative Basics paper
D1320 Shining Star Stamps


I created a second paper tree using instructions from Tracey Mason.  I created an accordion flower with a stamped sentiment for my topper on this one.  


Supplies:
Styrofoam Cone
CTMH Mistletoe Level 2 papers
K& Co paper
D1380 Just for the Holidays Stamps



I created a total of four paper trees to sit upon my mantel!  The "subway art" was a free printable from eighteen25.  I changed the colors to match CTMH colors and the rest of my decorations, then printed and framed. The "JOYFUL" decoration was created by me- check it out HERE.  
My grandmother made the stockings for me 3 years ago, to match Pottery Barn Kids ones.
Do you see our ELF???  He wanted to help out too!
VOILA!
