Barbara’s Crafty Christmas Tree!

Take a page from design team member Barbara Anders’s book and create your own wordy Christmas tree! Using two sizes of Styrofoam cones and the Art Expression Text stamp set, Barbara “grew” this project into something she can be proud to display in her home for the holidays! The trees look great on a mantle or as part of a festive centerpiece. There are plenty of possibilities when you’re willing to get crafty!


To complete this project, you’ll also need the Accent It – Feathers and Arrows Die-namics (Barbara used the smaller feather from the set to create the tree’s leaves), Primitive Cream card stock, and MFT ink in Kraft and Black Licorice. And like always, having a great imagination helps, also!

    Oh great. I got my feathers but haven’t done anything with them yet. Was playing with my hexagons today. Got a good Christmas idea for them?
    Have a great day

    What are accents? Do you have more directions someplace else? Can I go to Barb’s site?
