Use this Christmas Tree on Red Buffalo Plaid Digital Download to create a Pocket Page for your junk journal. Or decorate the tree to use in your journal.
Using the Buffalo Plaid stencil I created a red and gold gel print (Buffalo Plaid Gel Prints Digital Download). Then I created a Christmas Tree silhouette and placed that in the center.
One digital image at 300dpi ready to print as 11 x 8.5 inches.
Instructions for creating a Pocket Page with the Christmas Tree on Red Buffalo Plaid Digital Download.
- Print the Christmas Tree on Red Buffalo Plaid on Cardstock.
- Fold in half so that there is a valley in the middle from top to bottom of the Christmas Tree.
- Fussy cut the tree from the Buffalo Plaid
- Use a 10.95 inch by 8.5 inch piece of paper for the base. It helps that the base is smaller so that you don’t see as much of the cut out from the Buffalo Plaid.
- Decorate the tree with stencils or stamps. I used the Scattered Stars Stencil and gold acrylic paint with a Ranger Blending tool to add a pattern.
- Distress the edges of the tree.
- Apply glue to the back and attach fibers, lace or fabric. I used ScraPerfects Best Glue Ever, apply a bead of glue on the back, allow to air dry then mash the fibers into the glue.
- Put a stripe of glue down the center of the base paper and along the bottom where the tree will line up. Lay tree on the glue and apply pressure – use a book or something to hold it down to the page.
- I added a dot of glue under two of the points about midway down so that the tree wouldn’t pop out from the page. This created two tuck spots on each side. If using bigger journal cards, adjust accordingly.
- Finally add other embellishments, example; charms or sequins, make sure you don’t put anything bulky in the spine.
