Catch Up

Well, it's a start.....

I'm bringing up the rear and playing a bit of catch up.  I never completed any of the November challenges with my Counterfeit Kit.  Since we aren't switching right to a new kit for December, I thought I'd turn in some late homework and try to catch up with my November kit.

The November blog hop challenge was to make something decorative for the home.  My kit was Christmas themed, and I turned to my Pinterest board for inspiration.  I found this post with an idea for a rosette tree (the tree is at the end of the post, after all the other pretty rosette ideas).

So here's my version, using the Little Yellow Bicycle papers from my kit:


I started at the bottom using 2" strips of paper, scored every 1/2".  The bottom layers were 30" in length (2 1/2 of the 2" strips).  I just used progressively shorter lengths, and at one point, I switched to narrower strips of papers. 

I'll try to keep catching up over the next few days!
