This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Christmas Tree - Space Saver - Candy Cane Lane - BoBunny

Hello Everyone

I hope that your Christmas shopping and preparations are going well! ;-)

I have an Aunt who is 86 and stays in a Retirement village near us.  She is in room, which she shares with another lady.  So I wanted to give her something Christmassy for her room, but had to keep it small.

I had got some inspiration from the shopping centre near us, that had a Christmas tree, made from huge doilies.  So here is my tree, made from different sized diecuts.  I am sure that any circular type diecuts would work perfectly.

I used a dowel stick for the centre and punched holes into the centre of my diecuts.  I also added a little plastic jar, which I covered with paper, as the base. Each diecut piece I just cut a slit from the centre to the edge, and then stuck the ends together to give it a curve.

I added pearls and gems as the decorations.

This is how it looks from above!

I will pop past my Aunt today and give it to her.  I hope she likes it!!

Anyways....hope you are enjoying the festive season.

Have a super, festive day!
