A Rose Bud Christmas Tree tutorial

Then I used my embossing stylus (but anything long and skinny like a skewer would work) and I started at the end and started rolling up the spiral.
When you get it all finished it looks like a really tight rose bud.  You can glue it like that or I let go to loosen it up a bit.
Then just put some glue on the bottom to hold it all together.
After you get all your roses complete call in your favorite 5 year old helper to give you a hand.

Then just start gluing away.  (Don’t worry, I was supervising the use of the hot glue gun with my little girl, no one got hurt in the production of this tutorial)
Stop for yet another posed picture…..
Add a ribbon bow at the bottom for the “tree stump” and VOILA!  A Girly “pinkish” Tree..
It turned out better than I thought it would.  She hasn’t decided if she wants to add something else to it (It is her choice, because it’s her “pink” Christmas Tree)  But I like it just the way it is.  I can’t wait till Valentines day.  I’m gonna make a heart out of Red velveteen paper!
