A little Christmas craftiness (added more pics)

Hi girls! I've been busy trying to keep up with the holidays, work, and my munchkin. So I haven't been around as much.

But I wanted to share a little project I'm finishing up. It's being gifted tonight at a party.

And here's an in-progress shot:

I found the directions in the Nov/Dec issue of Scrapn'art magazine. You can download it here: http://scrapnart.com/news.php?digifree (you may have to register to get access to all three issues they have)

But the basics are a styrofoam cone, scrapbook papers, a heart shaped punch, a hole punch, and lots of straight pins. I edged the hearts in black marker and curled them slightly around a pencil. Then you just pin the heart papers on the tree. DH cut a small rod to glue to the back of the star so I could poke it into the top of the cone.

It may get a base if DH can find something that will work. It would look really cute with a base and some presents under the tree.

Anyway, thanks for looking!

ETA: DH made a stand for it out of a wooden ornament. I think it looked really cute that way. Yay for a crafty hubby! Smile

Actually, it wasn't a lot of work! That's the beauty of it. I probably spent under 2 hours on it. I did everything in bulk -- I punched out all the papers at once (about 3 sheets at a time, I used 9 total I think). I inked stacks of hearts at a time. And even curling/punching the holes I did several layers at a time.

And people really liked how it turned out. Smile

thanks for the compliments ladies!
