Remember the vintage ceramic trees that every mom had?
Well, my mom was one of them. lol Yes, we had a white ceramic
tree just like this one and also a pretty green one.
I don't have them any longer, but we enjoyed them for many
years. In fact, I still have a handful of the tiny colored lights
that I happened to found in my craft room. :)
Yes, I don't throw anything out! lol


First up is my white tree that I made using my Sizzix Eclips2 and
it cut out like a dream. I used the Eclips2, first, because my daughter got it for
 me over the Thanks Giving Holiday. Second, because the score lines would cut
 lines for easier folding. Third, because it was brand new. The machine
 cut the glitter paper sooo fast and sooo perfect. I have the Cricut ExploreAir2
and also the Cricut Maker and will see how it cuts in Design Space, especially
the score lines.

It took lots of folding and plenty of glue. I've made many 3d projects 
from Mary's kits, but this was a new challenge for sure. And especially since
I picked out white glitter card stock that didn't want to stay glued.
Yes indeed, this is not for a beginner or faint at heart.
But, it's soooo worth it when you stand back and watch it
sparkle and glow.
I bought a set of led lights with a remote, so you change the colors.
Mary, suggests a plug in candle light, but I really enjoy all the colors.

A few pics of the different colors below.
It is sooo pretty in green.


Blue is so beautiful!


In lilac that matches my Cricut ExploreAir2 :) 

Reminds me of cotton candy!
I just couldn't stop clicking it on and off. haha

Turquoise is so cool.

Yes, all the patience and hard work paid off. For Christmas, I'll be
giving this gorgeous tree to my daughter. She will be so surprised
and I know she will have fun turning it off and on and watching
it sparkle during the day and especially at night.

Sooooo, since I'm going to be missing this super pretty 
tree, I'm going to be patient and start the hard work again, so I can
once again enjoy turning that little remote on and off. :)

Well folks, I hope that I didn't scare you with all the work
details to make this gorgeous tree. Just think of it this way,
it will be a cherished Heirloom Christmas tree for many year, 
and each time you click on those lights, it will be so enchanting. 
That's called Labor of Love!
Hey, I may have enough patience to make one for everyone
in my family......well, I'll have to think about that one. haha
Maybe if I had Four hands, one to hold it place and one to glue. lol
