Blogger's Challenge - Week #17 - Inspiration

This week's challenge was to use something as inspiration in one of our projects.


My challenge this week was a group effort with the Crafting group at my church. We get together each Thursday to make hand made items for our annual Christmas fair. I saw a tree made using holly leaves worked into a form and decorated for the Holidays.


When I saw this I thought of our great punches. The five star flower and the 3 flower punch. These trees were made using the punches and Anna Griffin paper. We used beads and pins to secure them into a foam cone shaped form. We added tiny birds to the top of the trees.
Enjoy!
