OH TANNENBAUM, OH TANNENBAUM... 
Product Details: 
Spellbinders

Heartfelt Creations

 Cut two each for a total of six Lacey Circles in a variety of greens.  Find center then cut hole using Petite Circle (smallest one in set).  Cut straght cut on all circles to allow for making cone shaped layers.  I also cut six additional brown circles that would help hold my layers up on the twig. 
 Stamp Large Cardinal Pine Bough Precut Stamp on Lacey Circles using black India Ink.  Distress with Vintage Photo.  Assemble in cone shape as shown by gluing edge to edge. 

This may look unappealing, but the glue dots that were applied to the twig held the layers in place.  It was a simple solution when out of hot glue! 

Apply Gold Liquid Pearls along lacey border, add assorted Stickles and bling, then thread randomly through lacey holes with silver cording.  Attach velvet ribbon to top and apply Copic Colored Holly berry and leaves. 

This is really "Sculpture In the Round".   It can be viewed at any side or angle...One angle, it looks a bit "Charlie Brown" and at other angles it is standing tall!  It's a nice little centerpiece for my crafting desktop!!!

Remember: 
Simply leave a comment on my blog to be eligible to win the Spellbinders Holiday Hoppin’ Prize Package . One winner will be chosen from all the comments on all the blogs participating today. Comments made in the first 48 hours of this post will be eligible to win. Winner’s names will be published on the Spellbinders Blog on November 22. Winners will have 48 hours to reply to Spellbinders to claim their prize.
