Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!

 How lovely are thy branches!  Well, no 'branches' on these but they did turn out lovely!  Well, at least I think so! ((grin)) 

Last Thursday was our last scrapbook class for 2013 and as always, with my December classes, we had a Christmas Party!  I served hot cocoa (complete with mini marshmallows and whipped cream!) and cookies. Everyone got a free roll of Washi Tape, too!
 I created the trees from the largest pennant from the Perfect Pennants Die.  And, what would a Christmas tree would be without a little 'bling'!  I added a glimmer paper star to the top of each tree.
I also created a journaling pocket.  These are easy to make. Just cut a piece of cardstock about 1/2" wider than you'd like your journaling piece to be, notch the top with a circle punch and insert the journaling.  I added a pull out tab with some shredded Burlap Ribbon.
