Foamiran Christmas Decoration

 
Hiya Everyone,
I hope that you are all set for Christmas? This month is very hectic for me and I haven't had a lot of time to craft.
I have a little project that I would like to share with you.
 
I purchased a few MDF hearts and other shapes from ebay a while ago to spend some time crafting with my daughter. Ashleigh will be home from university soon and we wanted to create a few, home made Christmas tree decorations for our new Christmas Tree.
We didn't have a tree last year, as I had just had another operation on my leg and needed the Christmas tree space, for my walking aid and wheel chair.
 
Anyway, enough of me Waffling on he he.
I discovered Foamiran on Noor Design and thought I would try out a sheet to see if I liked it.
Well....I am now addicted and have ordered more sheets in different colours, I really urge you to try it out!
There are lots of tutorials on Youtube to give you an idea of what you can make.
 

 A peek at all the layers!

 
 
I made this large poinsettia, from one of my dies, Marianne dies I think. It is six layers, I distressed it a little and added a few pearl stamens and lovely bling. It is the perfect size for my MDF heart, which I covered with Maja Christmas paper.
 
I also made the little Christmas branches, I cut a strip of paper and snipped it right along one of the longer edges and glued it to a piece of stiff wire and carefully wrapped it around the wire, to the bottom and hey presto you have a little Christmas branch!!!
 
I will pop back soon to share our other Christmas Tree Decorations!
Have a fabulous day!
