Let's Get Hopping # 33 "Christmas In July"


Hello and Welcome to another Blog Hop with the "Let's Get Hopping" group. Whether you have hopped here from the very talented Alicia's blog, or you are starting your journey here, I am so happy to have you visit.

The theme this month is "Christmas In July". Although we are only way half way through the year, there is no better time to start your Christmas craft then now, Christmas tends to have a way of sneeking up way too soon.


These little Christmas Trees can be used a few different ways. They make a great table decoration, place holder, or a treat holder.


These are so simple to create, I have Gold Heat Embossed 4 Trees from the "Perfectly Plaid" stamp set, and punched these out with the Pine Tree Punch.

Create a score line down both sides of your tree, this is where you will glue 3 sides together, so they will need to be scored in around the same position on each tree. 

Using the two strips that have been scored, glue these together and this will be your base for the tree. 

Snip the trunks from the trees and adhere to the base with liquid glue.

Punch a hole in the tree what will open and the middle of the three trees that are glued together.

Die Cut two stars from the Stitched Stars Die using Gold Foil. I have glued the two together at the top with a glue dot, and used liquid glue to adhere to the opening tree.

Lastly the tree is held together with the Gold Twine from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo.


The colours I have used are Shaded Spruce, Old Olive, Granny Apple Green, Pear Pizzazz, and Garden Green.
