Put you sunglasses back on today for more silver glimmer trees. These were also made with strips of our silver glimmer paper. I started with 2 styrofoam cones that were about 12" tall. To create them, I cut my silver glimmer strips (lots!!!) and then gave them a little curl, using my bone folder. Each strip is 1" wide.
-Start at the base of the tree, having pre-cut a lot of strips.
-It takes about 7-10 strips for each row, tapering down to about 5-7 by the top row.
-Place hot glue just on the top edge of a strip.
-Attach it to the 'tree' with a slight overlapping of each strip.
-Stagger strips above previous row, for more interest and fullness.
-Add a little circle at the top of the cone to cover the top of the cone.
-Attach a beautiful bow with long, flowing sreamers.
-Curl the streamers a little, for a beautiful look.
Don't forget to mark your calendars for some stamping fun!
