How to: Print photos in black & white and handcut them into triangles. Cut triangles from LOTS of different patterned papers and lay them out with the photos, forming a geometric tree shape that extends vertically over two stacked pieces of 12×12 cardstock. Ink the edges of all the triangles and adhere them to the cardstock sheets. Add journaling for the photos on each of the triangles with a grid pattern. Cut the word "Christmas" from another sheet of patterned paper using a die cut machine or a craft knife. Adhere the word underneath the last row of tree triangles. Trim a piece of DIY Shop polka dot burlap into a 2.5×4" rectangle. Adhere the burlap underneath the "Christmas" die cut, forming the "trunk" of the tree. Add Thickers to complete the title and finish off the design with enamel dots and a couple of glittered chipboard stars.
Have a great weekend! Happy crafting! We'll see you again on Monday!
