Hi everyone, my name is Michelle and I'm from Singapore. I started scrapbooking about two years ago and is now seriously addicted to this lovely hobby. I don't really have a fixed style for any of my layout or altered projects. Sometimes its simple and sometimes its complex.
I am very honored to be part of this team to share with you some the projects that I've done. You can visit my blog to see what else I've been up to.

O' Christmas Tree Tutorial

Have you been planning to make a Christmas Tree with your SB supplies? Craft it yourself for the mantel or something for your desk at work or even as a gift! Here is a wonderful Tutorial by our chosen Inspirational Scrapper for Dec 08!

Things you would need:

Foam (any shape you like. I'm using a cone shaped)
Foam (for the pot)
Satay Stick
Pattern Paper
Any Christmas embellishments that you love to use

Step 1:

Paint the foam green or any colour you like, so that when there is gap when you arrange the embellishments, you will not be able to see the foam.

Step 2:

Start to use all the embellishments that you wish to be on the foam. I have used flowers, leaves and buttons to decorate it. Instant of using glue, use pin to pin them down onto the foam. This way, you can reuse all the embellishments if you want.

Step 3:

This is how it look like after everything is in place.

Step 4:

Select any pot that will be big enough to hold the weight of the foam, and start decorating it by using any pattern paper that you like.

Step 5:

Finally, to assemble everything together, poke the satay stick onto the base of the Chirstmas tree and stick it into the foam in the pot. As the foam from the pot can be seen clearly, use any of the old or reuse papper to cover it as much as possible.
