Christmas In July Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Christmas in July Blog Hop, inspiring you to get out your Christmas stash and use it before all the new collections are introduced this month. Join the fun and create something too, use the hashtag #scrapbookchristmas in twitter, facebook or instagram.

I chose to make Christmas trees with my left over scrap paper, ribbon and stars :)
I started with 2 foam cones and a toilet paper roll.
  My helper, he supervised.  
 I cut 3" by 1/2" strips and then adhered them to the cone.
When it was all finished I splatterd it with some red water colour paint.


For the rolled paper tree, I cut rectangles 2" by 1 1/2".  Keeping the length as 1 1/2"  When I adhered them to the toilet paper roll, I left a 1/2" overlap and I did this all the way down and then went back doing the same from the inside of the toilet paper roll.
For this one, I just wrapped it in some very old "paper twist" that I had from way back when ;) It's basically just a very wide paper ribbon.

I then decorated with some embellishments and below is the results :)




Next in line for the blog hop is Stella be sure to stop by and see what she has created!

If you get lost along the way you can always start back at Ruth's blog.


As always thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone is having an Happy Monday and enjoying Christmas in July!
