Trim the Tree....
It's week 3 of FEATURE FRIDAY at Concord & 9th and this time we're showcasing the Trim the Tree stamps and dies. Love that mondo-sized tree and all the bits you can use with it.
My first project is these little gift bags. I've accumulated a few over the years of subscribing to scrapbook kit clubs and I like to decorate them with fabric shapes and use them as gift bags. So quick and easy and re-usable.
The design of these is really simple - I just ironed Heat'n'Bond to the back of a variety of fabrics, ran those through the Sizzix and ironed them onto the muslin bags. While I was threading and gluing on buttons I was able to listen to one whole episode of the Stuff You Should Know podcast. #winningatlife
So while I was in the gift giving mindset, I decided to make some gift tags too. I used the plaid background stamp set in various color combos, stamped a sentiment on vellum and layered them overtop the plaid background. There is a To: and From: stamped on the back of each that I didn't think to photograph.
My final project is a shaker card. I die cut the tree from coordinating Christmas patterned paper I had and stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card, so that it can be seen from the front. I also stamped the lights (very carefully) on the top layer of acetate and filled the front with clear and gold shiny stuff. I remember again why I don't often make shaker cards. They are involved!! So this one needs to go to someone worthy!
