My mini Chistmas Tree

Using a variety of Stampin' Up! materials only, I was able to decorate my mini Christmas tree.  It is adorned with glitter snowflakes, embossed roof flashing, and hand punched Christmas balls. It was a fun project to do, and a nice way to showcase different Stampin' Up! items and show how Stampin' Up! is so much more than card making and scrapbooking.

To make the Christmas balls I punched the small flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and secured each one with a small pin to a styrofoam ball.  The other items were cut with the Big Shot - and the silver ornaments were cut using roof flashing.

I used the following:
Cardstock:  Cherry Cobbler #119685, Brushed Gold #102935
Glimmer Paper: Silver #124005
Punches: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border #119275, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack#118309
Accessories:  Big Shot #113439, Snowflake #2 Original Die #113460, Petals-a-Plenty Embossing folder #116824, Northern Flurry Embossing Folder #120902, Snow Burst Embossing Folder #124096, Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets #120805
Embellishment:  Supernova Glitter #114287
Ribbon:  Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding #120992

How clever! This shows SU isn't only cards or scrapbooking. You did a great job! Thanks for the inspiration. Came over from SC.

I love your idea for an ornament using styrfoam and SU stuff. What a clever idea, and a pretty tree.
