I wasn't going to participate in this challenge with so much holiday stuff going on but inspiration struck and I gave it a go. Here's what I made from the square box and flower templates...



I printed the flower template 3 times, each time increasing the size. The tree is made cutting the flower template to the centre then twisting the flowers into cones. I nipped the tip off of the cones and used a bamboo skewer to stagger the different sized 'branches' and hold them in place.



I curled the edges of the petals slightly and then added loads-o-glitter *drool*



I used the square bottom box for the bottom. The end of the skewer is pushed into the centre of the box to hold the tree in place. There's a load of fake snow and more glitter *dreamy sigh* added to the top of the box. I wrapped the sides with ribbon to finish it all off.

I may make more but jumbo size them! This one is around 8" tall  Wink

I'm entirely full of happy sighs looking at this, too!  The glitter snow is such a beautiful touch and I adore what you've done with the templates.  Kudos!

Thanks. I'm really considering making a whole forrest of them if I can find the time inbetween the stuff I'm supposed to be doing. It actually came together pretty easily so I might just have another go.

Clever turning the flowers upside down and stacking them to make a tree. Looks great! Love the different papers and glittered edges.
