12 Days of Giveaways Day 3 | Kelly Barron December 3, 2019 07:30

Hello friends! It's Kelly and today I am sharing a December Documented page that I created using this fun Holiday Tree cut file. 

This cut file is so fun and would look amazing as the focal point on a layout. I chose to use this as a filler page in my December Documented album and love the way that it turned out.

To start, I opened up the file in my Silhouette software, and created a rectangle in the size of my filler page (6.25 in x 8.25 in). I then opened up the file, and removed the Happy Holidays sentiment for sizing. Since I backed the cut file with a busier patterned paper and a transparency, I knew that the letters needed to be as large as possible for readability.

 I am still enjoying creating my own transparencies using my laminator. Refer to this post for details on how I have created some transparencies to use for my projects. On this transparency I used tinsel glitter by Recollections. While it doesn't quite look like the tinsel that was once commonly placed on Christmas trees, it gave me the nostalgic feel of decorations in the past. 

It's hard to see the glitter due to the glare of the transparency, but in person it is noticeable and a fun element behind the cut file.

Once I adhered the transparency to the cut file, I lightly adhered it to the patterned paper. Then, I machine stitched around the edge with white thread. For the finishing touches, I sprinkled clear sequins around the page and added a chipboard star to the top.
