Scallop Christmas Tree

Good Morning! I'm still making tags...one of my favorite things to make! Here is another one made with the top notz die. This time I made a scallop circle tree to put on it. I've seen them all over splitcoast and don't know who the original creator of this tree is, but I really like it. They would be cute on Christmas cards,too. I used a Nestie so it's alittle larger than one made with the punch. I think the ones I have seen might have been made with the SU scallop dies, I'm not sure. Mine has 4 layers, the top of the tree has 3 scallops, then 4, then 5 and the bottom has 6. I dug in my Christmas button jar to find the red buttons and the snowflake and star for the top. I found these in a package of Christmas buttons at Michael's this fall that had alot of really cool shapes. I wish I had picked up another bag because now I can't find them anymore. I loosely wound some gold cord around the tree, too, and popped it up with some dimensionals. So much fun to make!
