Welcome to the Purple Cows Blog Hop!

Howdy y'all!

Welcome to the Purple Cows Blop Hop! I made a table decoration to share with you today.

Tools:
Purple Cows 1060 Trimmer
Purple Cows Free Style Mouse
Purple Cows 1049 Decorative Blade Pack
Scissors

Materials:
Core'dinations card stock
Imaginisce Polar Expressions patterned paper
Glue Arts tape runner
Star paper punch
Floral wire

You can make this Christmas Tree any size you like.

1. Cut a half circle from card stock. Glue two edges together to form a cone.

2. Cut four 3x12 inch strips. Now use the FreeStyle Mouse with the decorative blade of your choice to make partial cuts randomly across each entire strip. Also use scissors to make small cuts across other edge of strips.

3. Glue strips around cone, layering as you move up the cone.
4. Punch out two stars. Cut small length of floral wire. Glue two sides together with floral wire in center. Use this to place star on tree top.


Enjoy your decor!!

Or if you feel like making a layout for easy scrapping of those Christmas pictures this year. Here's an idea using more Imaginisce Polar Expression.


I'm in the holdiay spirit and would like to give away a RAK to one randomly drawn visitor. So please leave me a comment by 12/20 and I'll draw a winner on 12/21!

Now hop along to Paula Nelson-Hart's Blog to see what she has in store for you. Happy Holidays to everyone!!!
