Bitty Blossom Tree with Bow

Hello friends

Yes I know it's still October but I just can't help myself!
With the darker nights coming I need something cheerful so I'm
still on my festive theme.
Today's crafty offering is a mini tree featuring Bitty Blossoms,
Sprigs and Tiered Multiloop Bows.

The tree measures approx 20cm - just right for a table centrepiece,
your mantelpiece or desk at work maybe?
The base is a polystyrene cone - that boy of mine has them on
the website here.

I used a piece of paper measuring 7" x 7" to cover the cone.
The Bitty Blossoms were created with a few sheets of 12 x 12,
but you could equally use lots from your scrap box.
I made a total of 40 flowers, starting with 7 large flowers around the base
and then the remaining were all cut from the middle size.
The Sprigs were cut up, a dob of glue on the end and inserted into gaps.

Not the quickest of projects to make but therapeutic!
I chose to die cut all the flowers first and then sit in front of a film to
roll and glue them.

The bow is a new die, it's due in stock within the next few days,
Tiered Multiloop Bow - really easy to do and I shall be featuring this set
soon with a Friday Die Day.

Take care friends.

  17. Hello Christine
    Wow this is amazing. It would look brilliant as a Christmas table centre piece. I will definitely give it a try, probably for next year tho, my Christmas to do list is sooo long now it will never get completed.
    Take care

  18. Hello Christine,
    This is beautiful and I'm going to make two for my Granddaughters' bedrooms. I made some Christmas trees about 20 years ago with dried seeds, pine cones, imitation Christmas berries, small gold beads etc. on polystyrene cones and they come out every year. Mind, I do pack them away very carefully!!!!
