Sparkle & Shine Rosette Christmas Trees

Here is a photo of the project we will be making at our next crop on November 2nd:  the Rosette Christmas Trees featured on the front cover of the Holidays from the Heart Gift Guide (which goes live October 15th!)

They turn out super cute!

In order to keep this project free to everyone attending, I'm asking that you bring a few supplies.  This will also cut down on the need to share and will speed up our crafting time.

Scoring tool (a skinny-tipped one works best)
Versamat/Cutting Mat
Bonding Memories glue or the EK brand one
Liquid Glass or Alene's Fast-dry glue - we'll need a thick glue that dries rather fast
Prima Glitter or super-fine glitter - 'snow' colored
Glittering tray, or cheap paper plates to catch glitter
Glue dots - small or medium
Red Button or Bling Gem for top of tree - I used one on each side so you might want two

Some crafters have used a Scor-board to scor the strips, but I wasn't crazy about doing it that way. If you have one and want to use it, bring it.  And some people have used hot glue to do the rosettes.  It cuts way down on wait time but if you want to display your tree in a place where sunlight or any heat source will hit it, the glue could loosen and then your tree will fall apart. 

Contact me if you have any questions or if you would like more details about attending our crop.

You can start shopping for products from the Holiday book beginning October 15th, please note that many of these items are available While Supplies Last, so if you are interested, please place your order as soon as possible.  Many are sure to sell out quickly!

Thanks for stopping by!
