The cute tree tag was created by using scrap patterned paper! I cut the tree and stitched a border using my sewing machine. Create garland and ornaments by using bits of ribbon, buttons, stickers and brads. The "star" on my tree was created by cutting a piece of cardstock to 11x3/4" and scoring it every 1/4". I used my threading water punch to create a decorative edge, folded the piece like an accordian and attached the ends, creating a cylinder. With the scallop edge on the table, bunch the straight edge together and gently press down, causing the paper to fan out and create a pretty little circle. To hold this circle's shape, I adhered it to a punched piece of paper and secured the front with a button and Glossy Accents. As with tag #6, my "11" is thickers colored with Copics to match the other elements.
