♥ A Shabby Pastel Christmas ♥

This week I am your Hostess at The Shabby Tea Room! I chose the theme of "A Shabby Pastel Christmas"! It is to create a card and/or project with a Holiday theme and using the colors from the inspiration photo. Here is the beautiful and yummy photo.

This week the Shabby Girls got to play with some awesome templates by Creations by AR. I love their templates. They are so fun and easy as "pie"! I chose this adorable "Piece O' Cake" template. I decided to turn them into little Christmas trees! They are perfect to hold little presents inside!

These adorable templates took me literally 15 minutes to print, cut and assemble all three of them. If you need a last minute gift, how cute would these be to make real quick and stick money or a little gift inside!

They would also make a wonderful centerpiece for your table! Put some snow (batting) around them on a large platter, add a little snowman or Santa and there you have an instant centerpiece!!

And if you want, you can add a piece o' cake inside!! ;) hehe

I used some Digi papers by Crafty Secrets to make the trees. I also used some seam binding and trims, Maya Road chipboard snowflakes, little glittery styrofoam balls (snowballs), mini pastel paper roses, jingle bell, wooden button, Liquid Pearls and lots and lots of chunky glitter!

The winner of this week's challenge will win 2 templates of your choice by Creations by AR!

These are so pretty! I like to make little treat boxes to set on the table at Christmas. Love the little trims you used to decorate them.
