Deck the halls


Morning, some tree decorations for you today.  They were part of my recent class where we used the gorgeous colour combination of cherry cobbler and old olive to make some Christmas projects.  I made these two types of decorations with Stampin' Up!s ornament and petal card punches.  You can even store little chocs inside the square one.  I was so excited to make these as this year we are having a real tree!  We haven't had one for many years and I have treated my self to some glass baubles too (I know it's obscene but I do feel a bit Christmasy already - yikes!)

Have a great day & see you soon x

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Contempo Christmas and cute by the inch (hostess set).  Ink: Cherry cobbler and whisper white craft.  Card stock: Old olive, cherry cobbler and very vanilla.  Misc: Basic pearls and gold elastic cord.  Tools used: Ornament punch, petal card punch and 1/16" handheld circle punch.

Oh you just can't beat the look and smell of a real Christmas tree! Now what sweet treats will be in store for those who open these boxes?! I'd find it hard not to sample a few different treats - all in aid of finding the perfect treat of course *wink*!
Missed stalking your blog recently, hun! Catching up now and have to say I adore your Halloween boxes too!
Hugs
