Need a Tree Topper? How 'Bout a Tree?

Pin It



Hey, anybody need a Christmas tree topper? Maybe a nice l'il tree for a tabletop? Well, then, here ya go!

Today's no-stampin' paper project was created for Allison's "Suggestive Sunday" blog challenge. This is my second project created using the Pyramid fold and as promised, it's totally over-the-top, no?

Using green card stock and my pine bough paper punch, I punched out a bazillion pine boughs and layered them on to my pyramid.

I created a star-topper using a Cuttlebug die, wrapped a length of iridescent pearls around the tree, then created 'ornaments' using a star and circle punch.

Yup, I can hear you already, "w-a-y too much time on her hands," but I created this pyramid card in less time than it took to create my Halloween pyramid card. My speedy secret? A Power Punch tool and lots of fast drying super-sticky-craft glue. Oh. And Red Bull ...

Hope you're enjoying your Sunday; thanks so much for spending part of your day with me!

~Hugs,

  • Card Stock: DCWV; Bazzill Basics
  • Accessory: Iridescent Pearls
  • Tools: Power Punch; Star Punch; Circle Punch; "The Ultimate" Glue

PS PEEPS: If you're interested in purchasing stamps ... as if ... I've just listed several nice ones in my eBay store. To check 'em out, clicky HERE. Thanks for lookin'!

WOW! WOW!! WOW!!!
This is F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!!! That must be one heck of a power punch tool, and I don't know how you could type with all that super-sticky glue on your fingertips:o) (I would have it all over myself and everything I touched...LOL!) This tree is awesome!!! You never cease to amaze me with your gorgeous creations.

Yes you out did your punch art. Punch companies are stupid if they don't hire you to design for them.
