Valentine tree

Welcome to another challenge for the Papercraft Star!  This week's inspiration is hearts.  For my project I had purchased this tree I found at Michaels, which reminded me of my mother.  One Christmas she made herself a pink feathered Christmas tree that was to stay up all year long to be decorated with each season.  Well I guess Mom gave up right around Easter, because she took down the tree not to long after Valentines day.  For my tree I made ornaments using the images from our sponsor The House Across the Bay, Valentine Music of love 205, and Victorian Valentine 206.

For this ornament I used a Tim Holtz Facet and adhered the image using some Crystal Clear adhesive to the back and finished it with some seam binding for a bow. 

For these ornaments I took further inspiration from Lisa Pace's new book Delight in the Season which is now available!  She likes to edge tags and rosettes with diamond and silver stickles.  With the vintage images from The House Across The Bay I adhered the images to various chip board pieces and edged with silver stickles.  

Just for fun I found this picture of me and mom showing off the heart decorations we made for that pink feather tree all those years ago!

Now it's your turn to show us your hearts!  Just enter your project by Monday 6:00 a.m. EST. for you chance to win some fabulous images from our sponsor The House Across The Bay!  For more inspiration check out the rest of the Design Team's projects, and welcome our newest member Syliva!


Paper:  The House Across the Bay images printed on copy paper, patterned rosette paper from My Minds Eye
