Christmas Tree Tutorial

Busy wrapping presents and have realised you haven't got any tags? Make some quick and easy ones using an old book.

What you need:

Some card or shipping tags
pages from an old book or dictionary
ink pad to ink edges
some ink spray or paints to spritz the background
rhinestones or pearls

Start with a semi circle cut out from a book page (I used a dictionary)

Ink edges

Bring the rounded edge up across the straight edge.  Depending on where you start the fold - it will determine the width of the tree.

Fold back across

Then back again... Add a little bit of glue or double sided tape under each of the folds to hold your tree together.

Cut a small piece of cardstock for the stem. Attache to the back of the tree.

Add some ice stickles or Kindy glitz to your tree to represent tinsel!

Have fun making some trees!

December Kaiser Collections

Kaisercraft released 3 beautiful collections this month. Paradiso, Key to my Heart and Confetti.

Pardiso was mine to do...and lets just say its still coming - I do aim to catch up over the Christmas break!

Did you know that every month Kaisercraft releases a brand new Work shop magazine full of layouts and ideas for the new collections? We have the glossy hard copies available in store - but if you are unable to pick one up you can see it all {HERE}


With paper names like Salty Kisses, Sandy Toes and Sunsets it's not hard to picture the inspiration behind the new "Paradiso" collection. If you love the beach and summer as much as we do, you can't go past "Paradiso"
