Foamiran Christmas Decoration

 
Hiya Everyone,
I hope that you are all set for Christmas? This month is very hectic for me and I haven't had a lot of time to craft.
I have a little project that I would like to share with you.
 
I purchased a few MDF hearts and other shapes from ebay a while ago to spend some time crafting with my daughter. Ashleigh will be home from university soon and we wanted to create a few, home made Christmas tree decorations for our new Christmas Tree.
We didn't have a tree last year, as I had just had another operation on my leg and needed the Christmas tree space, for my walking aid and wheel chair.
 
Anyway, enough of me Waffling on he he.
I discovered Foamiran on Noor Design and thought I would try out a sheet to see if I liked it.
Well....I am now addicted and have ordered more sheets in different colours, I really urge you to try it out!
There are lots of tutorials on Youtube to give you an idea of what you can make.
 

 A peek at all the layers!

 
 
I made this large poinsettia, from one of my dies, Marianne dies I think. It is six layers, I distressed it a little and added a few pearl stamens and lovely bling. It is the perfect size for my MDF heart, which I covered with Maja Christmas paper.
 
I also made the little Christmas branches, I cut a strip of paper and snipped it right along one of the longer edges and glued it to a piece of stiff wire and carefully wrapped it around the wire, to the bottom and hey presto you have a little Christmas branch!!!
 
I will pop back soon to share our other Christmas Tree Decorations!
Have a fabulous day!

So here she is Tilda with Star Diedam, coloured with copics and I have added some white frantage for snow.
Unfortunately the image is lighter, than it actually is, but I just couldn't manage a clear photo - not for lack of trying he he!
 
 
 
I have used Pion Design papers, the gorgeous lace, real cinnamon sticks, tied with tonal seam binding and tiny pine cone can all be found here. The sentiment is Magnolia too and the multi tonal leaves are just divine.
