"I need several stylish, handmade Christmas gifts this year, and knowing me they'll be left until the last minute so they need to be quick and easy. And cheap (because let's face it - who's cashed up at that time of year anyway?. I think this one ticks all the boxes! This is a wicker tree I found at a florist supply place. It was already painted white, so all it needed was some colourful embellishment."




Products Used:

Bazzill Basics Cardstock:

4-453E Butter

Spellbinders:

S5-029 Lacey Pennants 
S5-028 Nested Pennants 
S4-092 Stars Five 

JustRite Stamps;

CR-03800 Large Fancy Holiday Sentiments 

Other Products Used:

Basic Grey Plumeria papers 
Button 
Seam binding 
Twine 
Wicker cone tree

Here's how I prepared the stars: 

Step One:
Cut some stars with the Grand Calibur and Spellbinder dies.


Step Two:
 Using a stylus, score a line from the tip of a point of the star to the 'v'on the other side.


Step Three:
Repeat for all five points. All of the lines will intersect in the centre of the star.


Step Four:
Pinch each point so that it pokes up along the scored line creating a mountain fold. The scored line from the centre of the star to each 'v'will naturally form a valley fold.
