MCT 12 Days of Christmas - Day 7


Are you ready for another My Creative Time 12 Days of Christmas post?  Today I have a fun tree decorated with lots of My Creative Time goodies!  I found this cute burlap tree at Michael's.  It had a rather sad red satin ribbon tied around the burlap, so the first thing I did was switch that out with some pretty Stampin' Up ribbon!


I made the JOY banner using the MCT Build a Banner Kit and stamped the letters with MCT's Circle Font.  After tying buttons to the ends, I just tied the banner to the branches.  The red is a much prettier red in person, but I was having a really hard time getting a good picture!


I made a few really cute ornaments with the dies from MCT's Warm Holiday Fun.  To make them, I cut the shape four times, and scored each one down the center.  I then adhered them together to give it a 3-D effect.  Before adhering the last one, I added a little loop of red hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.


This little ornament was made by adhering two of the star shapes from Build a Banner back to back, with a little baker's twine in between.  More twine on a red button finished it off!

HUGE GIVEAWAY

Okay, since it's Christmas time, Emma decided to give away TWELVE of her FAVORITE things to ONE LUCKY person!  She will announce one of the prizes each day in her video!  So by the 12th day, you will have seen ALL 12 items that ONE lucky person will be receiving!  All you have to do is leave your comment each day!  It's that simple!  ALSO, (very important) please leave your contact information so we can contact you if you are the lucky winner!
