Crafty Chicks December Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crafty Chicks Sparkling Season December Blog Hop!  

We are so excited to have you hopping along with us this month!  This month it is all about the sparkle & the shine :)  My kids and I created these super simple paper trees using the Close To My Heart Sparkle & Shine paper pack and green glitter paper

First I used the Artbooking Cartridge on my Cricut to cut a 6", 5", 4", 3" and 2" circle out of each pattern paper.  Then we folded each circle in half, in half again, in half again and in half one more time.  Then we cut a small hole in the tip of the triangle we created in each circle.  We put a wooden dowel through the center of each one and attached a small wooden circle from the Wooden Badge Buttons on sale in while supplies last. 
This was a lot of fun and super simple to create.  We are keeping decorations simple this year because we purchased a house and are moving the first week of January.  
It's a little hard to decorate when my husband wants to pack everything up - lol
The favorite of everyone was the green glitter tree.  These are so simple - I mean really simple - my seven year old, six year old and three year old make them with a little help from me.  I made the Glitter one :)
