triangle trees . . . .

covered with baker's twine were the basis of a tag made by Teri Anderson for Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist challenge.  Each day from December 1 - 12, there is a tag featured on The Classroom blog.  Teri's tag was on Day 6.

Here is the tag I made which was inspired by Teri's tag:



First, I glued some of Penny Black's Madison paper to the tag.  I tore white cardstock to make some snowbanks for the tree to sit on and added some turquoise glitter to outline them.  The tree was adorned with pearls and gems from Hero Arts and a Martha Stewart punched snowflake was added to the top of the tree.

Thanks for visiting!

OH my! I, too, was so inspired by Teri's trees. Can't wait to try them. You did a great job and the colors are perfect for a wintery scene. Love this!
