(pine) Cone Trees

I've been having a bit of fun with glitter lately, spreading it from one end of the house to the other. Well, that wasn't what I was working on, but it always seems to happen! The first project to get the glitter treatment were these trees, made using the Petal Cone die for the Big Shot.

The tree on the left has been decorated with dots from a Sticky Sheets and mini glue dots. The great thing about using dots from the Sticky Sheets is you can stick them all on at the start where you want them, and peel off the back of all the ones you want a particular colour then move on to the next colour. When doing the mini glue dots, I had to stick the dots for each colour separately. The tree on the right has been decorated with a brand new product. In the up-coming Summer Mini Stampin' Up! will be introducing Glimmer Paper. 12" sheets of glitter that doesn't come off! OK, that is a little less fun, but it has it's advantages! I used the Tasteful Trim die to cut out two strips to wind around the tree. I'm still contemplating adding some dots - which means adding more glitter! The trunks are just strips of Choclate Chip that I made tabs at the top of, then curled around and stuck together, then stuck to the base of the cones.
