CTMH--- Art Philosophy Banner Christmas Tree

What have YOU created for the Holidays this year???

My biggest project this season has definitely been this Christmas Tree:

I just LOOOVE how it turned out!  Here's how I made it:
First of all, the idea came from a project I saw at convention by Sara Batkin.  I used ALL Close To My Heart products on the tree, and tons of cuts with my Cricut Art Philosophy!

I used two packages of these banners.  I found that I could cut the banner shape on the Art Philosophy Cartridge to 7" to fit the banners :)

The papers used are the Olive diamond pattern from Lucky, and Olive Cardstock
I stamped some tiny ornaments in Olive ink, then added some Sparkles to them

I created over 40 rolled flowers (remember THIS post).  I used them to create a "garland" across my tree. 
I used hemp to tie each banner together, then cranberry ribbon to make bows (and keep the pieces together too).  Even though its all tied up, I had to tape some cardboard across the backs of the rows to secure them really good!

Here's some detail for you :)
