Tea Bag Xmas Tree Center Piece

Well I was playing again... Love the way this turned out. I've seen tea bag Xmas trees for card fronts, but never saw one as a table decoration. So thought I'd create one. I have step by step tutorial if you'd like to make one yourself. There is only one basic tea bag folded shape - just various sizes, so makes it pretty easy - and that includes the top ornament. And if your really want to be creative, you can stick a message inside the tree, mail it as a gift/or card.

And of course I'm using Quietfire Design rubber stamps - the small flourish and the snowflake.

Click on card to see descriptions and details etc. Enjoy
