Merry Christmas Bottle Brush and Paper Trees...Just Us Girls Challenge #421~Photo Inspiration, 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #379~Anything Goes, Muse: ChristmasVisions Challenge #90~Anything Goes


I'm playing over at Just Us Girls Challenge #421~Photo Inspiration today, as the images offered exactly the incentive needed to 'finally' use my Concord & 9th Take A Bough Dies that I've had since just after last Christmas.

After watching a couple of 'how to' videos to make the trees (they take a bit of time, but sooooo cute once done), I created two gift ensembles for my niece and nephew's teachers.  No turquoise paper in my stash, so we have one blue tree and accompanying card...

and one red tree, with its card companion.

My trees were a bit wobbly in their 'too big for them' pots, so the goal will be to find some spools or wood chips for a sturdier base.  Hope the teachers like them; such fun to make!

Wishing the Just Us Girls team a most Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
