This is a fun “trash to treasure” project perfect for Christmas!  Following is the list of supplies I used, but you can adapt this to whatever you have on hand, as long as you have cardboard, glitter, and glue.

Supplies:

  • Corrugated cardboard box or sheet
  • Martha Stewart glitter in various colors
  • Liquid glue
  • Various patterned papers
  • Pop dots or other foam adhesive
  • Vintage sheet music
  • Ribbon and trim (I used ribbons and trim from the SNS Nov kit) and/or crinkled seam binding (mine is from etsy)
  • Tag shapes to trace and cut out or die cut tags of varying sizes
  • Distressing tool (or use scissors edge)
  • Eyelet and setting tool
  • Scissors
  • Pen
  • Scallop Punch
  • Distress Ink

1. Start with corrugated cardboard.  If yours has paper on both sides, just peel off the paper on one side.  As long as it’s not printed, you don’t have to get it perfect.

2. Draw rough tree shapes on the back of the cardboard.  Again doesn’t need to be perfect.

3. Cut them out.

4.  They should look about like this when you flip them back over.  Ink the “trunk” part of the tree. (I forgot to take a picture of this.)

5. Spread with liquid glue and sprinkle with glitter.  Keep in mind that the more glue you have on it, the more glittery your tree will be.

6. Play around with lots of colors!

7. Trace and cut out  (or die cut) several tags, so that they are slightly different sizes.

8. Distress the edges and stack them up with 3d foam adhesive between the layers.

9.  Punch and distress scalloped circle and add to tag.

10. Add some ribbon/trim/seam binding and attach eyelet.

11. When glue and glitter are completely dry, add tree to tag.

12. Add ribbon through eyelet.

13.  Use as is for a gift tag or attach to the front of a card or altered notebook for a gift!
