The tree that Rachel had us make for our latest Facebook gathering used a roll of Quaters for the tree trunk. Well, I didn’t have a enough quarters for a roll so I thought why not LifeSavers. Have you tried looking for LifeSavers rolls not during the Christmas season? Well, it’s not easy. I did manage to find BreathSavers so that’s what I’m going with. The trunk is a piece of 3″ x 3 1/8″ piece of Soft Suede Cardstock and I used Tear & Tape to adhere it to itself. Then I folded over the top part and added glue dots before putting on the leaves. I put all of my leaves on a 1″ punched circle before I had the BreathSavers, it would be much easier to do after you have the BreathSavers. Check out Rachel’s post for how she did the tree.
The second project was this beautiful card featuring the Tropical Escapes Designer Series Paper.
