Gold Rosette Tree

When my online friend Shelly (Stamptramp)  posted her version of Tim's rosette Christmas tree, I was inspired to try one, too.  I imitated Shelly by attaching my tree to a box....I don't have any wooden spools of thread. I painted a heart-shaped papier mache' box with gold spray and added some black webbing spray for a little texture.    Shelly's tree is much frostier, but I made mine from Tim's kraft Paper Stash and used gold glitter.  The stars used for the base and the tree topper are cheapie ornaments from Wal-Mart. I had to scrape the bottom of the base star to flatten it a little; then I glued it to one of Tim's Philosophy tags.   And once again, I have filaments of hot glue everywhere!

Wow, this turned out great! Love your use of heart box and all the gold, glittery goodness. Nicely done, E! Denise B.

It is GORGEOUS Evelyn, I love your version. I would make one if I had the rosette die, as I was impressed with the tree also. I shall buy one in the New Year, ready for next Christmas.
All my baking is done just one more cheesecake and I am all set for the day.

I've seen so many of these on the web and must try it myself, what did you use to make the leaves?
