Rosette Christmas Tree


If you are like me and love anything Tim Holtz or Ranger then you will love this stacked rosette Christmas tree! Now if you don't own the TH alterations paper rosette dies you can get the same result using a scoreboard and cutting your rosettes into staggering width sizes.

Depending on the number of rosettes you make will determine the size of your Christmas Tree. My little tree is 6 inches high.

For this project you will need: TH Paper Rosette and mini Rosette (2 sizes), two sheets of Kaisercraft St Nick - Tis The Season Collection, some discarded cardboard backing (I used some from my Prima blossoms packaging) for the trunk, multi medium (or fake snow), Sticles Icicle, TH tinsel twine and hot glue gun or strong glue.


Stacked Rosette Christmas Tree


Using a bigshot and TH Rosette dies cut the required number of rosettes from Kaiser 'St Nick' Tis the Season collection. Remember if you don't have these dies it is still possible to make using a scoreboard or even by hand.


Once you have made the desired number you can start to assemble, Use a hot glue gun or strong bonding glue because it can get quite heavy. I actually made the first few loosely so it created a tapper effect. 


Add a button on top and place some TH tinsel twine around it. Decorate with some small glitter berries.


Cut a strip in the desired width from a piece of scrap cardboard (or the remains from one of your flower blossom packs like I did) you wish to make the trunk of your tree.


Taking a skewer or very thin paint brush roll the cardboard into a cylinder, put small punched circles or chipboard flower buttons on each end, so it resembles a spool. Wrap some binding around the spool and add a small spray of blossoms and holly leaves.


I hope you have enjoyed this project and I have inspired you to make your very own Rosette Tree.

Not long now until Christmas, have you finished all your shopping? Why not go visit Wild About Scrap store and pick up some last minute Christmas gifts!
