It's no secret I LOVE the PTI MIM challenges. This week Melissa's video shows her making an absolutely adorable Christmas tree with fabric strips, ribbon & trim. She said it's easy & a good project to do with kids. Didn't fool me--I knew it'd be a challenge--haha! To begin with, I stopped sewing nearly 40 years ago. My selection of scraps is very limited, but I was determined to use what I have, including a cinnamon stick for the trunk.
Tying on the scraps is easy, but I'm not sure if anyone would know it's a tree without being told--haha! I did have a ball making this, though, so it was a success! First time to use my PTI Small Sketched Stars. I left the little pieces in & covered them with Champagne Glitter Glue. Other PTI products are Fine Linen cardstock, Tiny Tags die & stamp and Canvas/Linen Impression Plate. I stamped the tag & inked the edges with Distress Ink vintage photo. By the way, Beacon 3-in-1 glue worked great--no need to get out my never used hot glue gun. I'm also entering these challenges: Cuttlebug Mania (trees--I use a Big Shot), City Crafter Challenge Blog (Christmas) & Virginia's View (texture). Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
