I used Cricut cartridges 'Christmas Noel' to create the tree itself and 'Joys of the Season' to create the decorations. The tree is 8 inches tall and the decorations are all 1 inch apart from the star on top which is 2 1/2 inches.
I started by cutting 6 of the swirly trees out in light green card using the 'blackout' function and scoring a vertical line down the centre of each so i could fold them and glue the sides together to create the 3D tree. I then used darker green card with the 'shadow' function to create the swirly overlay effect (this was a bit fiddly!).
Using the 'Joys of the Season' cartridge i cut the little baubles out in various colours and to create the star on top, i cut 6 stars out and scored them down the centre just like i did with the tree itself. I added some sparkle by using some glitter glue on the baubles.
