The feather tree, all dressed up

Debra Burgin Feather treeA few years ago I treated myself to this feather tree off of eBay, after being unable to find one locally.  When I signed up to “dress” one of the display cases at our library for the month of December, I knew I had to decorate the tree.

Of course, the past week my head has been full of holiday and baby happiness, so I shook that off and really got busy this morning after returning from my chiropractic appointment (a whole new appreciative audience for the baby pix!).

Debra Burgin Feather tree 2I wonder how many of those tiny snowflake holes I have poked in the last two months?  Still, the Northern Frost Decorative Strip Die is so worth it.  I’m happy (but not at all surprised) that Stampin’ Up! will keep that item after the Holiday Mini expires on January 3.

I made the skirt from a full sheet of Riding Hood Red Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack (from the Regals collection).  I have found so many uses for this product this fall!  The ribbon is also RRH — no longer available in the catalog, but a bargain through the Clearance Rack.

The stamps are incentive stamps Demonstrators can buy to give to workshop hostesses, for example.  They’re perfect as ornaments, tied on with a bit of elastic cord.

I love the way this turned out, I’m just sorry I can’t enjoy this in the studio until December 31!
