Today, the design team members are sharing projects made from their holiday stash - items left over from last year's projects (or maybe even the year before last!). I got the idea for this framed piece from a card featured in Papercrafts Magazine last year. I changed it around a little to make a framed accent instead of a card.
I used my Cricut to cut the Christmas tree from green cardstock, and then used the negative piece (the outside portion) as the frame for my tree shape. I laid the green tree frame over white cardstock and lightly traced the outline of the tree shape. Starting with the larger embellishments, I just started filling in the outlined shape, using stickers, rubons, buttons, and gems. The green cardstock piece was embossed with my Cuttlebug and a Sizzix embossing folder, then adhered it over the embellished tree. I wrapped the bakers twine around the outside of the frame and added a gingham bow.
Be sure to check out the DT projects today. I'm sure you'll find some inspiration for using up those holiday papers and embellishments!
