Making Memories Mistletoe Wish & Ribbon Trees


Making Memories Mistletoe Paper Collection, Pins, Chipboard Buttons, Buttons & Wish Diecut
Bo Bunny Double Dot Ribbon
Colorbox Chalk Inks
Styrofoam Tree Base

Straight Pins

1) For the Ribbon Tree...I worked with a very long length of ribbon. I would say the amount depends upon the size of the tree. Working with 1-3 yards typically. First I cut 2 small pieces to cover the top of the tree. Then I pinned the ribbon at the top of the tree and wound it tightly around the tree working to the base. I then pinned it at the base to secure it.

2) Then the fun chipboard and regular buttons from the Making Memories Mistletoe collection and use their decorative pins to pin these around and onto the tree.

3) For the base I use a small container I had around the house that I simply covered with the paper and then set the tree on.

Wish Tree

1) Start by selecting the papers from the Mistletoe collection that you like. I worked with 3 papers that were double sided. Cut strips 1 inch wide with varying lengths from 2-4 inches. Ink the edges with Colorbox Chalk inks. Then use a pencil to curl the ends of the paper.

2) Start at the base of the tree pining the papers around and working your way up to the top of the tree.

3) Add decorative pins and beautiful wish diecut to tree.

4) I used a small metal bucket for the can use pots, containers..or even have it sit on a table as is.
