The Final 1- Front
I came across this wonderful advent calendar idea on Pinterest, to make a tree for each day. There was these three patterns.
[warning- I did use a LOT of ink to do these trees. I went thru 3.5 color cartidges on my inkjet printer.]
I opened it in photoshop and layered it with pattern papers. I printed 24 of them. I also created numbers and some snowflakes to decorate them.
I used my ATG to hold them together running it around the edge of the circle, and on the fold tab.
I used cotton balls on top and added the numbers and snowflakes for decoration. I wanted to keep them simple since my kids will rip them open and won't appreciate my primas.
Thanks all for reading!
