Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree......

Just wanted to show you the little Tree I made out of Cardboard and sheet music.
I just printed a tree shape onto the sheet music and glued it to the cardboard then
cut around it .I then made slits down the middle and put them together and 
decorated with glitter and gold snowflakes.I may
have a go at a tutorial for this when I make another
if I get the time.

my Local craft shop.I Love all her art work.I made a twisted easel

the work and doesn't need much else.

together with a orange brad.

I used a 6x6 Kraft card Blank and scored one side from corner
to corner and folded to make a twisted easel card I then cut
another card blank in half  and matted with Green spotted paper.I did
the same on the bottom of the easel card.Then I took some coredinations card  chipped saphire
and used the Sizzix Beaded Ribbon Embossing Folder on it and then sanded it then s matted it
the half of Kraft Card Blank.
My Topper is the Tilly stamp from Personal Impressions stamped on to whited card
and the heat embossed with purple metallic embossing powder and copper
embossing powder I then cut out with Spellbiners scalloped oval.I used Tim Holtz
Distress Ink Vintage photo round the edges and stuck 3 pearls on it.I then
stuck this to some green pattered paper and curled the edges,I matted this onto
the Textured Coredinations on the half of Kraft Card Blank and
then stuck that to the Easel card.I used a sentiment for my Stopper and ribbon,gems and
flowers to embelish.I also cot a strip of green Coredinations and
used a EK Succes edger punch and added that at the side
of my Topper and thats it,Done.

Halloween Costume.Easy Make

I thought I would show you the Halloween Costume I made last year.I had one photo taken in it then had to take it off as we had a crisis (can't remember what it was now lol).It was really easy to make from an old white/cream dress I had in the wardrobe.I bought some bandages from the pound shop and draped them allover the front and back and just tacked them in place and then cut strips to dangle off the ends of the sleeves.I cut different lengths and sewed them together at the ends for around my neck and then wound a few round my head like a headband.Just use some makeup to whiten your face and your done.I think any white,cream or even grey dress would do.Here's a photo of me wearing my make lol
