I've got another little holiday project to share with you today for the Xyron 30 Days of Holiday Projects feature.
I created this Christmas tree from paper petals which I designed on my Silhouette machine.
If you're interested in creating one of these trees you can download my FREE file HERE.
I took a piece of white paper (printer paper is a bit thin - so I used some non-textured white cardstock) and rolled it into a cone shape. I stapled the edges so that it would stay shut.
After creating my cut file I cut strips (12" x 3") of patterned paper (Crate Paper: Bundled Up collection) and placed them on my cutting mat, then placed it through my machine.
I then rolled the ends (pointy side) to make it curl. You can use a pencil, pen .. whatever works best to roll the edges slightly.
I then put some Xyron Double Sided High Tack Tape around the bottom edge. I peeled off the protective layer from the tape and then began adhering the petals around the bottom edge of the cone.
When I began the 2nd row (etc) I just overlapped a bit and carried on with adhering a strip of tape around the cone and adhering the petals.
I just love the mix of patterned papers & the fun cheerful colors.
At the top of the tree I adhered 2 Maya Road flowers together using Xyron High Tack Adhesive Dots . I made sure to press the flowers together when they were over the top edge of the tree.
Supplies: Xyron (Double Sided High Tack tape, Double sided High Tack Adhesive Dots); Maya Road flowers, Crate Paper (Bundled Up collection), white cardtsock, Silhouette Cameo
