Merry Christmas! part II

Merry Christmas - Nordic style maybe? As I said in my last post I don't 'do' Christmas cards so I haven't got much in the way of Christmas stash. However, as it's the final LOTV challenge I really wanted to join in again and I came up with this idea for a Christmas Tree table centrepiece/decoration.

I used four different papers from LOTV's lovely Petal Fresh pad and my Squeeze Box die from Tonic. I made four separate rounds, stacked them together and topped off with a single box. I then made teeny bows and secured them into the 'tree' points with coloured bobble-head pins. I also did a messy bow type thing for the top.

Edited to add:  I was asked if I had a tutorial for this so I've made a mini one. Click on the Tutorials Tab at the top of the page.
