friday creative: holiday edition #5

today's project starts with adorable soft trees designed by stephanie from little birds handmade, (a blog that sadly seems to be no more). a few years ago everyone was making these cutie pie trees and i wanted to as well but i really can't sew! this year i recruited my mama to help and ended up with this little cutie... and then after we (i helped a little,) made a second bigger tree, i added bows to the top and photos to the front with stick pins. don't they make adorable photo holders? they look so cute on the mantle, i think we might make a whole forest!

here is the template and sewing instructions courtesy of little birds. my smaller tree with the wallet sized photo is the template enlarged 30% and my larger tree with the 3.5x5 photo is enlarged 180%.

happy friday!

xo, carly
